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!
Good morning folks. It is Thursday June, 15, 2017. Watson is up and doing pretty good this morning. I am seriously thinking on acupuncture for his seizures. Any suggestions or reviews on this subject?
Even from an early age, Watson had a mind of his own. Also that attitude. Truly a terrier.
Beautiful day in our neighborhood. Hope everyone takes the time to stop and smell the roses, or in Watson’s case, the grass. Have a good one on this Wednesday with Watson!
Wednesday finds Watson a little annoyed with me. Last week was not a fun week for our boy. Had to visit the neurologist about his brain. Which, in case you are wondering, does exist and I have seen the pictures! Watson has been having seizures and last Tuesday he have a bad one, so they decided to do an MRI and a spinal tap. I was worried that his little brain was going to be eaten up with cancer or cyst. Or maybe he had meningitis. But, no brain damage that is visible, no tumor, no evidence of stroke and no inflammation in the spinal fluid. The boys brain looks good folks, but as a result of his last round of seizures, his eyesight was affected. Blind. But slowly it is coming back. Seems sometimes they get nerve damage to the optical nerve. So, everyday I am poking my finger at him, hoping for a blink. Well, he is blinking and he is tired of me trying to poke his eye out. Seriously annoyed. So now instead of 2 , Watson is on 3 different meds to control these seizures. Been hard on my heart!
The shaved leg for his IV has started to itch..looks like a poodle cut to me.
You can see how his back was shaved for the spinal tap.
God knew this boy was going to need help. God also knew I would take care of him. We were meant to be together.
Only 1 more day!! Watson is not as excited about turning 3 as the rest of our family. I think he feels like every day is a celebration of life. May we all live and love like our puppies.
I am hoping everyone experiences the love and happiness we all deserve. I believe that every being needs love and I am so lucky to have great family members that treat this puppy as part of not only my family, but theirs. Everyone who loves and cares for Watson are appreciated. Thank you to Mendy, one of our favorite go to person!
Only a few more days left in this year, that has had both up and downs and twists and turns in our little family. But Watson remains healthy and happy, at least happy most of the time. Each day has been an adventure worth living and remembering. Hope all of you have had moments to remember as well. But we are looking forward to making the most of 2017. Good treats and good times ahead.
