Baxter is missing his big Lab family, he’s alone and depressed…

Baxter lived with his Dad and siblings, 3 died, one moved away. Photo: Cindy Florie Williams

PRAY FOR: Baxter, 8yo. Depressed? Lonely. Lord Jesus You know how much Baxter and his family have lost in the past 2 years with his siblings leaving and Mom and Dad dying. He is not used to being an only dog, and the house feels quiet and empty. We ask that You would fill the home with Your life. You, Lord are the way, the truth and the life. We know that You are the author of Life. Breathe life into this household again. Comfort mom Cindy and thereby Baxter. Help him to sense that he has a purpose to carry forward, a noble lineage to uphold. Encourage this family. In the Name of El Chaiyai, The God of Life. Amen. <3 Caren

Cindy Florie Williams 7-19-19: The top pic is my Baxter..Son Of Shadow Buster ..he is on the bottom left , the other picture* is of all five of my Labrador family.. we had Shadow Buster, Dutchess, Zoey, Baxter and Buster…. We lost Dutchess January 12, 2017, I had to help Shadow cross the rainbow bridge on March 27,2019 nearing four months now. Then five weeks later to the day we lost Zoey to cancer.. Ever since he’s no longer in our home Baxter has changed,, he has slowly improved with time but not like he used to be. He has days where he does not want to eat, and I can just tell he’s missing his big old Gentle Daddy.. would you say a prayer for him that there’s nothing else going on with him and he’ll bounce back soon.. we have lost three of our five labs in a 30 month time frame.. to say I’m devastated is an understatement.. I’m shattered ..His brother Buster is living with my Son for the past four years now (Cont. below)

Psalm 31: 14 But I trust in you, O Lord;
I say, “You are my God.”
15 My times are in your hand;

Matthew 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

Romans 15:13: May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

Prayers for Pets
I imagine so. Such enormous personalities and presences gone from the house. That alone is a loss. NOT trying to sell you a book, just wanted you to know how deeply we are touched by Black Labs
😍
There’s just something unique to Labs, specifically black ones…
Cindy Florie Williams
I love the breed.. I guess you already know that.. loyal and loving.. most dogs are but I’m so attached to the breed

How old is Baxter?
Cindy Florie Williams
He’ll be 8 February 8 His Daddy Shadow was June 8.. born on the same number.. ❤️
Prayers for Pets
I’ll be praying the 8 is a golden age for him. Is it possible to get a few more pix of him alone to work from? I’d like to schedule a post tonight to run in the morning- meaning I’d need pix asap.
Cindy Florie Williams
Having Baxter and Buster in my family just knowing that they’re a part of Shadow makes me love them that much more Yes, give me a couple minutes to sort them out
Prayers for Pets
❤ of course
Cindy Florie Williams
I’m working on it now
Prayers for Pets
So you still have both Baxter and Buster?
Cindy Florie Williams
My Son took Buster and Zoey when he bought his own house..Zoey was his, he wanted a companion for her so he took Buster.. he had two then I had three
Buster and Baxter are brothers, Shadow and Zoey were their Daddy and Mommy
Zoey had ten puppies, six all black.. four yellows.. five males and five fem[ales]
Prayers for Pets
It’s clear in looking at this family that they’re from beautiful lines
Cindy Florie Williams
Prayers for Pets
Oh my goodness what a joyful time that was! And CHAOTIC!!!
Cindy Florie Williams
You can say that again.. ten very beautiful healthy puppies..I’d do it all over again in a heartbeat
Prayers for Pets
Well, maybe you should?
Cindy Florie Williams
I could never get as lucky as I did placing the eight in wonderful homes with wonderful families.. made contracts for them to sign and strict background checking..three went to one family, two went together to two families and one went alone… they all still have them and I keep in touch to this day with sharing pics and stories of their lives
Cindy Florie Williams
Unfortunately we didn’t know Zoey was spayed..we found out the hard way.. she was found by my Son.. no one ever came forward to claim her..so he took her under his care and gave her a good life
I couldn’t breed … to many sick people in this evil world.. I’d be afraid of what could happen to them.. to many abused and abandoned..I do not want to contribute to that number
Prayers for Pets
Yes. That’s the problem. It’s an enduring project that becomes endless. The initial chaos is great, but it’s the huge responsibility of finding homes that is the real challenge. We wanted to breed our Golden- she refused. Smart girl! lol We were too young and stupid at the time; it worked out for the best. I’d wanted the experience for my kid’s sake, but Genny wasn’t having it 😉

Cindy Florie Williams
