Watson and I headed up to Arkansas at the end of June to spend a time with the family in Arkansas. The weather was perfect. Mid 80’s most of the time.
I was very worried how Watson would do considering the last time he had an episode of cluster seizures, but this trip went smoothly with no problems.
And Watson enjoyed the boat ride, even tho he had to put up with Diesel!
But mostly, Watson and I hung out on the deck and enjoyed wonderful afternoons on Lake Hamilton.
I realize that Bob Marley was talking about you, as a person, as a society, as a generation, when he said to ” Light up the darkness”. That we must remember that we are the light and have the power to overcome the darkness in this world, but this boy, my baby Watson, has the power to light up the darkness that exist in our lives and turns on a special switch that fills our days with love and happiness. Hope everyone has a great Wednesday with Watson!
Much needed rain started falling around 3 in the morning.
When dawn broke the yard was wet and the rain was steady. We needed the rain. It has been so hot and dry for the past week or so.
But, that left Watson in a pickle. He hates the rain. So he is waiting for a break in the weather. He ran out for one quick minute to do his business and ran right back. Bless his heart.
Even from an early age, Watson had a mind of his own. Also that attitude. Truly a terrier.
When will the rain stop???
Watson started the day with robust energy. The problem he is having is that the duck is dead. No, we do not have a real duck. But he has a few of the type you find at Petco.
This one was his favorite. He is the one that shook it to death. But for some reason he looks to me for an explanation. – Can you please fix this problem?? – No, Watson, this duck has brain damage and you slit his throat. – What?
Guess we could pick some flowers for the memorial.
Traveling back to Texas is easier if you are the big dog of the family and can sleep all the way! Arkansas wore this boy out.
We are on our first road trip to the Lake Hamilton for this year. Watson and Aunt JuJu are ready to get there! Lots of construction on I30 and we were stop and go for about 90 minutes going out from Texarkana. So our little man was getting a little fustrated. Normally he travels so well, sleeps most of the way, but that stop and start got him tired, along with his momma and his aunt.
Don’t know what Watson is searching for, but he seems hypnotized by the smell of the green, freshly mowed grass. That particular smell always brings waves of memories rushing through my mind, wonderful spring mornings in Arkansas. I always stop and take in the smell, going back time to my childhood. So, I like to thing Watson is thinking back to his first summer and that special feeling of love and security we get from special sounds and smells of spring.
