Watson


Meet the newest member of our family. He is a very handsome 8 week old golden retriever puppy. His name is Watson.

Waverly's favorite part of her time at Jill's House is always when Titus the therapy dog (also a golden retriever) comes to visit. She is all smiles and giggles when he is around. She loves to pet him, rub her feet in his fur and watch him fetch and run through tunnels. Further proof that a dog was in our future

Once we moved into our house, we knew we were ready. We visited rescues and shelters, spoke with breeders and did a lot of research. There is a local dog school that was recommended to us for therapy training, we simply needed to find the *right* dog. Thankfully, a friend from high school saw my posts on facebook about getting a puppy. Her mom has several golden retrievers who are therapy dogs. Her mom contacted me and offered to help us find a dog. Her friend is a breeder and had 1 puppy left in her current litter. He tested high for temperament and she thinks he will be the perfect puppy for us.

He will be joining our family in about 10 days. He was born in Boston and will be making his way to us, with the help of some very kind people.

Watson is going to bring so much joy into our lives. And a bit of normalcy that we so desperately need right now.

Hooray for Watson! He looks like such a sweet, smart dog. I think this timing is wonderful, to have something exciting around the bend after being through so much this past month.

I can't WAIT to hear that he has arrived at the McNeil Homstead. CONGRATULATIONS!! xoxo, Joanne
