Reseting Low-Power Watchdog Timer (DSWDT) for Deep Sleep

When there are two sources of wake up from deep sleep (e.g., DSWDT and INTx), if DSWDT is set to eight hours, after six hours the INTx wakes the device. How can be DSWDT reset to zero so that it doesn't wake up after servicing the interrupt from sleep in the two hours remaining?

To enable the DSWDT in Deep Sleep mode, the Configuration bit, DSWDTEN (FDS) has to be configured. The device Watchdog Timer (WDT) needs not be enabled for the DSWDT to function. Entering into Deep Sleep mode automatically resets the DSWDT.
