Baxter the therapy dog, who we featured here last week, passed away Friday.
The news was broken on Facebook, where Baxter has his own page, in a message sent to members of The Baxter Bussey fan club :
“Baxter, the world’s best and oldest therapy dog, 19 years and 6 months, eased peacefully from his life on Friday afternoon, October 16th, 2009 … The sweetest angel. … We love you Baxter, and many hugs to his family…”
Baxter worked with hospice patients, bringing them comfort and love at the end of their lives His story was published in a book, “Moments with Baxter” all proceeds from which are being donated to animal and hospice charities.
