Dear little Watson, who has been bravely battling Lymphoma with his Mum Linda at his side, was put to sleep last night. He seemed like a wonderful character, and clearly had the most loving home he could wish for. He was with Linda and Rich for a tragically short time, through his more mature years, and must have been one of the happiest dogs ever to have come into such a safe and loving environment after what he went through earlier in his life.
I'm sure Prince will be cantering alongside him now, helping him and guiding him on his new journey. They'll be full of joy at how well and fit they feel, and sending lots of love, light and support back to us at this level. I can understand the pain, numbness and shock that Linda and the family will be feeling now - and I'm sure you'll all join me in sending lots of love to them at this terrible time. Thankfully, we're only separated physically, and nothing can take Watson (or Prince) away from his family in spirit.
Linda writes so beautifully, and with such wit and humour, that I hope she resumes blogging when she feels up to it.
