When her daughter comes to visit, she discovers her father dozing off with some strange company: the dogs from the neighborhood.
When Catey Hall goes to see her father, there is a good probability that she will find him dozing on the couch, but she should know that he is never by himself.
He is typically accompanied by his animals, but the most peculiar thing about the nap is that all of the dogs from the area get together to make a large pile.
As Catey explained it to The Dodo:
Every day, Dad interacts with at least one of these dogs by petting, playing with, and napping with them. They start rushing as soon as they spot his car, and they follow him inside.
Catey’s dad, Lon Watson, has always had a soft spot in his heart for canines; in fact, he has such a soft one for them that he donates his time at a local animal shelter called Pound on the Hill.
There, the good-hearted man makes certain that all of the rescued animals receive the assistance they require and are placed in suitable homes.
A woman walks in on her father dozing off with their dogs.
Catey claims that Lon is always willing to aid stray dogs, and that over the course of his life, he has witnessed Lon save a great number of animals who were in need.
“When I was a kid, our family always had a dog. However, there was always place for a wayfarer who was in desperate need. There is plenty of room in their home now that he and his wife live there by themselves.
He even collaborates with other animal shelters in the region to help find good homes for strays that have been rescued from the streets.
However, not everyone is able to find a new home, and some of the children choose to spend the remainder of their lives with Papa Lon.
Lon’s house is currently filled with four dogs, all of which were strays that he and his wife took in and nursed back to health at their own pace.
However, it should come as no surprise that he is paid frequent visits by a variety of dogs that live in the neighborhood of his house and share a particular affinity with him.
It is typical for Hooch, Fluffer-Nutter, and Rosie to wait the entirety of the day to have some alone time with Lon, which brings them a great deal of joy.
Dogs are able to securely roam the area thanks to the semi-rural setting of the neighborhood and the distance that the homes are set back from the roadway.
“In most cases, the dogs are able to detect the sound of my father’s truck approaching and locate him in the driveway.”
It seems as though Lon and the dogs that come to visit are more than just buddies to one another, which makes their relationship rather unique.
The best part is that Lon’s human neighbors don’t mind her spending time with their animals, and they never bother her while she’s trying to catch some shut-eye.
It would appear from all indications that Lon possesses a powerful energy that the dogs can sense, which is why they are so eager to be around him and spend time with him.
Even when Lon is with his daughter, Catey’s two dogs won’t stop trying to get him to come back home.
Without a shadow of a doubt, the fact that Lon is kind and respectful toward animals has given them the impression that he is the ideal person to look after and safeguard them.
