Watson’s New Year’s resolutions
Watson here and it’s almost the new year, so I’d like to share my resolution list with you. I think it is important to take care of my folks, so I’m making sure that they will be healthy and happy in this coming year.
My first resolution is to get my mom and dad up early every morning to go for a walk in Laura Mills Park. After breakfast we will go to the dog park for another few laps around and a game of ball. That’ll keep them on the ball.
The second resolution I want to focus on is diet. I’m a regular training Lab when it comes to good eating and eating good. I resolve to make my folks feel real 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 superhero.
My third 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 shots or worry about inoculations. Gosh, I think I’ve got it covered. I’m wishing everyone a healthy and happy New Year and if you ever need a kiss, I’m all puckered up.
