Dr. Watson lost his fight against hemangiosarcoma on Friday, July 8, 2011. Since his diagnosis, he had fifty-five wonderful days of exploring new neighborhoods and encountering deer, rabbits, squirrels, woodchucks, ducks, scary raccoons, and even a turtle. And I had fifty-five days to make sure he knew he was the most loved little dog and how grateful I was he picked me. On his last day, he ate ice cream and when it was time, he went gently.

Here are some pictures of the magnificent Dr. Watson.
