Being an absolute dog lover, I had to look for his seven reasons why. Personally I can think of 1 million reasons to own animals but I was wondering what his were. I found his YouTube video that you could watch here https://youtu.be/1JBke_ukVpI. I’d say most of the things I knew but maybe one or two I just never thought of in the same way.
I also came across this one https://multiplesclerosisnewstoday.com/2017/03/09/five-benefits-of-having-pets-when-you-have-multiple-sclerosis/. This one had the list of 5 from multiple sclerosis news today.
It’s the gets you in a routine that both talked about that I never really thought about.
I need my routine. If I’m not in it I’m out of sorts. Truth is I have a very specific routine with my dogs that I very rarely deviate from. They let me know if we are off too.
If you follow my blog or if you don’t, my fur babies are my adopted kids. I love them to pieces and they bring me tremendous joy. They brighten up my darkest day. Are my friends when I’m lonely, make me smile when I’m sad and calm me down when I’m nervous. All they ask for in return is food and water. They are truly the most wonderful animals. I didn’t need a list to tell me their benefits but I got excited that someone made one.
