I’m not a turkey, but I can gobble

Watson here and tomorrow is my most favorite day of the year, except my birthday, because it’s Thanksgiving. Yes, I’ll be watching football with dad while mom is busy cooking up an incredible feast. I love turkey and gravy, and sometimes I get a homemade roll that I gobble down quickly.

My life changed eight years ago when I was adopted from CAPS, and I must say these have been the best years of my life. I have no clue why I was dropped off at the pound, but thanks to CAPS, I was given a second chance to be the dog of my family’s dreams.

I’m a regular fitness trainer because I wake up my dad and mom early, and I take them for a walk every day. I help with watching their weight, too. I eat all the vegetables my dad doesn’t like (don’t mention this to the mom), and I’m always ready to share dessert.

I love CAPS and everyone who strives to make life better for those of us who are abandoned, misunderstood or rejected. Lots of my friends are rescues, and that includes my mom and dad. We rescued each other, and we have a happy-ever-after home. I know a lot of the folks who have been rescued by their animals.

At Thanksgiving, we are grateful and thankful for everything our life provides. I’m especially thankful for CAPS and all the folks who advocate and care for us. I hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving!

XOXO, Watson
