You know what? Watson was right! Every part of every day is new, even the plain, old stuff. Because it’s now—always now—the old stuff can become new. It can change. It can become better.
Watson taught us the joy of discovery and to love listening for the tiniest sounds in our lives—and his life. We learned, from our brilliant dog, how important it is to not take anything for granted.
What follows is intended to tell Watson’s story through our family’s eyes. But we’d also like to honor him by making it more than just that. We learned so much from him, enough so that we hope to convey a message, a “takeaway”—even an inspirational reflection—that you can carry through your day. Perhaps you’ll be able to carry it even further.
Our four years together were not nearly enough. Cancer took our boy when he was only seven. Even so, it was enough time to form a deep reservoir of “Watsonisms” to share. If, until now, you haven’t considered yourself a “dog person,” perhaps this will show you what you’ve been missing.
