5 Ways A Dog Will Make Your Life Better
Dogs are more than just “pets” to so many people. In fact they are considered a very important part of most families. They bring joy our lives, they are extremely loyal and they accept us just the way we are. Here are five ways in which a dog will make your life better.
A dog will cheer you up and improve your mood.
We all have bad days and on those days we can always use a little help keeping our head up and keeping a positive outlook. A dog will take you on your worst day ever and lick you in the face and give you the assurance that tomorrow will be better.
A dog makes your heart healthier.
According to a report published by Harvard Health Publications a dog owner is more likely to exercise, have better cholesterol and low blood pressure. In general a dog owner is less vulnerable for a heart attack.
Owning a dog makes you part of a caring community.
No matter your political beliefs, faith, or race, a dog crosses all those borders. Dog owners share a special bond with their dog, and they understand and empathize with each other. Two people diametrically opposed in views can break the ice easy when they start talking bout their dogs.
A dog will cause us to appreciate the simplest of things.
Life can get very complicated at times and we may find ourselves in situations that overwhelm us. Pick up a stick or a small chew toy and think about how happy this can make your dog. Interaction with your dog with something so basic can really put things into perspective for you.
Your life has more structure and order.
Being responsible for a dog requires some type of schedule and routine. Planning for a trip or social functions require more attention.
