Okay... so the last video was rather anti-climatic... eh? When I played it back here after I posted it (I can't preview videos in blogger the way I do pictures -- I have to actually post the videos to see them), I was really disappointed with the video quality. It really lost a lot, including sound, in compression.
Like I said, I'm still learning. (sigh)
THIS time I tried compressing the file a little less, specifically for web streaming, and it should still have sound (I hope).
The clip captures the Baxter Boos sensing that it's time to go back to Maine with Sarah and Chris. RR knows that Baxter was raised here (came to us as a 6.5-week-old pup), and lived his first five-and-a-half years with us. But when Sarah and Chris married last summer and were getting ready to move to Maine, we decided Baxter would make great company for Sarah while Chris was in school (med school is really demanding), and he'd make a great constancy for them both in a life filled with change. So Baxter (and the fuzzy cat Snickers) moved with them.
And, sniff, now he even likes it better there with them than he ever liked it here! (Hehe... that's actually a wonderful thing). It sure seems that way, anyway.
What do you think? Here's his reaction to leaving us to go back to Maine after the kids came home for the holidays:
In HD, the movie clarity was incredible for being shot in the dark. I hope it comes out light enough for you to see well here even though it's compressed. We'll see. I just don't know what to expect.
In any case, you can't miss Baxter's enthusiasm.
What a sweet, happy, galoot he is. And I truly am tickled for Chris and Sarah to have him. It's a great thing all around.
What a goofy boy. :o)
'Til next time,
