Hello everyone, it’s me Watson joining rescue today! And I am so excited to be out of the “artic blast” and into a great rescue! A few days ago, I was picked up at a local shelter and there I sat waiting on my people to miss me and come get me. Well that never happened. I kept thinking this shelter and these concrete floors are going to be getting pretty darn cold so come on family and find me. And the rest is history.
No one came except my new best friend Cindy. Cindy got to the shelter at 9:00 and waited till 10:00 when they opened to make sure she was the first in line to help me get out and into rescue. The shelter workers described me at funny, friendly, and loved to eat. Yep, that’s me. Now I can add famous because I am going to be on social media looking for a new family that won’t lose me.
2/14/21 Update: Yesterday was quite a whirlwind! After being sprung from the cold shelter, I ended up at this house. Here, there is a foster mom, dad and brother (two-legged).
When I first got here, I was a little restless, trying to figure out my surroundings. Then, I settled right in after getting the lay of the land.
I am enjoying being close to people. Even when they have to work in the office, I lay right next to them. I love being pet and the yummy food they have here. I’d take a little more if they’d give it to me. I’m recovering from a surgery just a few days ago, but I seem to be feeling really good. Foster Mom says I’m nearly perfect.
Sometimes, when I get really excited I try to show them how much I love them, but they told me that’s not appropriate. Also, sometimes, when I smell something I like in the house, I want them to know it’s mine now, so I mark it. They told me that’s not appropriate either. Hrmph! I guess I’ll need to work on those things.
There’s a backyard here that I like to explore, except it’s so darn cold right now. I still go out there to go potty and look around, but don’t stay too long. I slept all night in the crate with no problems and didn’t make a peep. See? Overall, I’m pretty perfect!
2/16/21 Update: Good grief! What happened? When I got here, there was grass for me to do my business in and now it’s all this white cold stuff! Normally, I lumber around, taking my time to see and smell all the sights. Not now! I go out, hurry to my favorite spot, and sprint back in as quickly as I can.
3/2/21 Update: After a brief stay with Dr. Larsen, I went back to my foster family. I got to hang out with my new friend, Clark, for a couple of days. I am super happy that he will find his furever home through East Coast Bulldog Rescue.
I was hoping to be on my way to a furever home, but Foster Mom got a call from Dr. Larsen. She looked a little sad and said something about worms. Yuck! Apparently, I need to take some medicine for awhile before I’m ready to move on. She tells me not to worry; I’ll get lots of love and attention here and be as good as new in no time.
In the meantime, I’m learning some new things. I’m pretty good at “sit” and I’m working on “stay.” Foster Mom keeps saying “lay down,” but why would I want to do that? Actually, I’m a huge fan of laying down, just not when I’m told to do so.
I have learned that I can play without getting “too” friendly and I’m not marking things in the house anymore. Yay! I’m enjoying the backyard a lot more, now that the white stuff is gone. I’ll just hang out here until I’m ready for my new family.
3/21/21 Update: I’m in my 1st week of treatment for the tummy bugs. I’ll be super happy to be finished with that nasty white medicine tonight!
3/30/21 Update: Greeting from Watson Wayne!
This week I got to go to a Paw-ty. I’ve never been to one and when I got there I could not believe how many bulldogs and people were there. I was a bit taken aback, a little unsure of what to do. I thought maybe I could back up and get to a quiet place, but every time I did I wound up in the middle of more dogs. I got more comfortable after a bit and foster mom said I did great for my first social event. I met some really nice people and they seemed to like me a lot!
Another thing I learned is that I LOVE car rides. I figured out that when foster mom picks up her purse and keys that there’s a chance that I get to go. In the mornings I get to take foster brother to the bus stop and I love to watch all of the kids get on the bus. Foster mom took a video of us getting ready to pick him up today and she said it perfectly captures my “Waggy Butt”…whatever that means!
I’ve got about a week before Dr. Larson helps me with my heart worms. It can’t come quick enough! I am ready to be 100% and on my way to my forever family!. In the meantime, chilling on the couch isn’t a bad way to spend my time.
4/9/21 Update: I hope you enjoyed the beautiful weekend we just had! Here at the foster pad, I thoroughly enjoyed doing what I do best…lounging. I like to lounge ON things: all kinds of things… chairs, couches, people.
I’m still hanging out with my foster family. They are awesome, but I really hope that my furever family finds me soon! For those of you looking for a lovable, house-trained, crate-trained, slightly stubborn bullie addition to your family, here is one more thing you should know about me: I am a man of routine! Foster mom says I am really smart and pick up on cues quickly, although we all know who’s doing the training here. As quiet as she tries to be, when she opens the lid on my joint chews I know that my meal is being prepared. I race to the kitchen and lead her to the mudroom where my food is. As soon as I hear her open the bag, I race back to where she will put my bowl. I don’t know why, but I start getting really drippy right about now. When she turns the corner, I motion her on in to the landing spot. As you can see from my video, she tells me to sit. “Lady, I AM sitting! And this puddle on your floor is getting bigger.” Oh well, I’ll cut her some slack. She does a pretty good job keeping me fed. While you’re enjoying your food and staying cool inside your house, go ahead and fill out your application to be matched with your perfect bulldog!
