  1. Bye Alden, Bye Watson . . . (with a p.s.)

    . . . have a great life baby-puppy.  I should feel a sense of relief that one of the hooligans has gone off to his new home in California.  Perhaps if there had been a “whole” litter, I’d be feeling it, but there were just the two dear little boys.  I know he’ll be in a great home and that Alden and her family will welcome him, but . . .  So, bye little guy.  We’ll all miss you.

    Goodbye Watson 11-22-09

    If Alden’s jacket wasn’t zipped, you’d see that she is wearing a blue kaleidoscope.  She was fortified with a New Mexican burrito and a margarita last night.  I’m hoping she comes back to visit soon.  I’m hoping there are many Watson photos and videos.  It was a great visit — too short, but so much fun.

    p.s. Alden called once she had boarded the plane.  The airport was not very busy when we arrived.  At security, Watson was removed from the Sherpa bag and, she tells me, all the TSA screeners insisted on holding him.  When Alden checked in at the Southwest gate, Watson was promptly nominated as Southwest Airlines official mascot.  In the waiting area, he entertained children and adults.  One very little boy wanted to know his name.  Alden said, “Watson” and the little boy said, “Waffle?”  So there is another name by which he may be called.  He was whining a bit, but like any good child, I’m sure he went to sleep when the plane started moving.

    The ticketing agent told us that Southwest is going to begin selling “sherpa” bags with “SOUTHWEST” on them.  Watson qualifies as the best Luv Airlines puppy.

  2. The Last Hurrah

    Chase had a couple more things to teach Holmes and Watson before Watson and Alden go to the airport. Watson will be appearing regularly on Alden’s blog (she promises).

  3. Inca Has a Way About Her

    Alden is flying home today — perhaps.  First she has to convince Inca to move — and that’s going to take some work.
