Watson, especially, helps provide the support and encouragement she badly needs during dark times.
Apparently, Watson had been such incredible help that she wanted to show the world her appreciation for the beloved pup.
Jen detailed her struggles in an Instagram post that read, “I suffer from anxiety and was recently diagnosed with PTSD. Having Watson be my emotional support dog was the best thing that [has] happened to me. I’ve grown so much as a person thanks to that one dog in my life that makes me want to keep going.”

“While being quarantined and having time to reflect on many things, one thing I thought of is how on earth was I so lucky to have such a caring and special dog like Watson,” Jen continued.
She added that she meant it as an appreciation post for all the amazing dogs around us.
