Thank you, everyone, for your well wishes.
I have his leash and collar, but my parents will be keeping his ashes. I was on the phone with my mother and she said, "Oh, gotta take the dog out..." Then she stopped and started to cry a bit. We've all been a little weepy the last few days. My niece and nephew are staying with my parents and they've been asking where Baxter's at...so that hasn't helped the situation.
Over the summer, we're going to spread him down at the crick that he loved, but we're going to save a bit. The idea is to have an urn to hold a bit of each beloved pet. A friend is making an urn with a longer post on the lid and a hook on the side. The post will hold their name tags and the hook will hold the collar of the most recently deceased animal.
I almost forgot how hard this is....

Baxter was the dog who taught me a lot about the canine world: that your second and subsequent dogs will never be the same as your first...that there are things you cannot train a dog to do, that the value of a dog isn't based upon the price you paid, but the love they put out and you put into them...and a whole host of other things.
At 16, he lived a fantastic life. He got to eat anything he wanted, within reason. His favorite season was winter, so he spent the last few days playing in more snow than we've seen in years.
I appreciate everything he taught me. I love him and will miss him dearly.
