A happy home makes for a happy dog. And vice-versa. There is a magic chemistry between the two. Look up the speech made by George Graham Vest. He makes the best case for this magic a dog brings, in his "Tribute to the Dog." I hope you enjoy this excerpt from Watson's Way. #dogs #home #happy #dogonpatrol #faithful #truefriend #sharingiscaring
Since Watson found being in a happy place a natural state, he wanted to account for all of us and, hopefully, find us happy too. It seemed to worry him. Enough so that he’d leave his warm bed every night just to make sure all was well with everyone. He’d even get up to check on his feline brothers…which often resulted in his bed being occupied by one of the cats when he returned from his rounds.
