To come to terms with this new age we're in, I gave it a name. Not long ago, we were all in "BC" (before coronavirus). Now we're all in "FC" (fighting coronavirus). Some people are in denial and living as if FC won't affect them. By now, it's clear to me that we all need to engage in heightened caution (FC), in the same way we see Watson doing with the dentist. Lots of people would do well to go very slowly into life, with eyes wide open, for the sake of everyone around them. Grab a copy of Watson's Way and see what other lessons he has to share. Read them to the littles in your life. #staysafe #gurudog #watsonsway #caninewisdom #chinup #laugh #wagmore #keepthefaith #usecaution
Watson’s teeth weren’t very good due to inadequate care in his “childhood years” before we became his persons. As a result, his first dental visit to Dr. Jennifer included his big, brown eyes getting much bigger when she opened his mouth to say “aahhh!” However uncomfortable this work was, Watson didn’t bark, growl, or show pain. But sometimes his eyes would get very large indeed, as he anticipated what was coming next. After that first visit, our boy often exercised heightened caution by going very slowly into his exam room, his eyes wide.
