Watson here, and with the New Year on the way it’s time to pony up and get serious about making resolutions. I know we make them here at our home every year. Do we keep them? Well, sort of, as mom says, “Don’t make a resolution you can’t keep.”
With that in mind, I would like to resolve taking a long walk at least once a day. That’s an easy one to keep because we saunter around the Liberty Park every day. When I say saunter, I really mean it! After all, I’m 12 years old, which in people years is 84.
Yep, I take arthritis medication, but according to research, the best medicine for arthritis is moving. That’s right, getting out for some fresh air and exercise clears the mind and joints.
If you want to stay healthy, get a dog. It’s pretty hard to ignore a cold nose and anxious buddy even when the weather is cold. At CAPS we have guests just waiting to take you for a walk. What are you waiting for?
When it comes to eating, I resolve to make my folks feel guilty each and every time they have a treat, they don’t share with me. I’m saving them from all those calories, I’m practically a super hero. Of course, at my age I have to watch those calories, too.
My last resolution is to build up my mom and dad’s immunity by sharing kisses, licks and dog fur. I’m a real health boost, because they won’t have to get allergy shots.
There you have it the resolutions I can keep. I’m wishing everyone a healthy and happy new year, and if you ever need a kiss, I’m all puckered up.XOXO
