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.
Ultimately, Watson trusted us—and his doctors—to do right by him. He had faith in us because he knew we all loved him. Including Dr. Jennifer and her staff. He loved us enough to trust us to take good care of him.
Watson’s way of dealing with trials and pain was quiet and faithful. Do you find this approach easy or difficult?
