Been getting these error messages since about release 10.0 I think.
Have changed to new hardware box and new cable modem and still having
the same error messages. Also occurs when I use em0 interface to connect
to the public internet instead of vge0.

I have continued to research this problem.
The "man watchdog" says that the command,
watchdog -d will provide debugging info, and
watchdog -t will set a new timeout timer value
When I issue either of those commands I get this error message
watchdog: patting the dog: Operation not supported
The man page also says a value of -t 0 disables the watchdog function.
Issuing "watchdog -t 0" does not get that above error message, but the
watchdog function is still enabled because I am still getting the
kernel: vge0: watchdog timeout
kernel: vge0: link state changed to DOWN
kernel: vge0: link state changed to UP
For the archives.
After a lot of trial and error testing finally determined the cause of
this problem is ddclient. When I disable ddclient from running those
messages stop happening.
ddclient is a dynamic DNS auto updater written in perl. I have now
deinstalled ddclient and written my own dynamic DNS auto updater sh
script that I am calling dynip with intention to add it to the port
