Westchester’s 2013 Pet Contest Winner: Baxter, White Plains, NY

He may seem like a ladies’ man, but with a security blanket in tow at night, this beagle/coonhound mix is one big baby.

The Mayoral Chick Magnet
An almost-3-year-old male Beagle/Treeing Walker Coonhound

His humans: Diane (quoted here) and Jonathan Mammana of White Plains 

Named after: The town he was rescued from in Tennessee—he came to us from a high-kill shelter. Genetic background determined by: DNA test. Funniest trait: He loves pretty women! He will literally jump up and kiss a woman right on her lips—and he usually gets away with it because he knows how to give the ‘puppy eyes’ after. His personality: Baxter is a big baby. He is one of the most loving, animated dogs I have ever seen and absolutely loves children and people of all ages. Best trick: Opening doors. Fave activity: Romping on Playland Beach with all the other dogs. Sleeps at night: In our bed under the sheets. Most endearing habit: We held onto his six-foot blanket from day one and he sucks on it like a pacifier to fall asleep. He’s like Linus from Charlie Brown. Most annoying habit: He jumps up and gives suffocating kisses to every human being he comes into contact with. He thinks he’s the mayor. Number one on his playlist: LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem.” He stands on his back two paws and gives me his front two so we can dance to it. Go-to toy: Anything that squeaks. Favorite food: Boneless rib-eye, cooked medium. Feelings about fashion: He hates clothing. We tried to dress him in a tuxedo shirt once and he hid under a chair and wouldn’t come out. Naughtiest act: After running full speed to a random woman taking in some sun on the beach, he slobbered her with kisses, unsnapped her top, and lifted his leg on her beach bag before running the opposite way.
