Pets Light Up Our Lives!

As I mentioned in a previous blog, I never had a pet growing up however, for years Judy brings her two Old English Sheepdogs to work every day which brings the employees much joy including myself! I have learned that dogs are a man’s best friend because of their endless love and loyalty to their owner and people that surround them! Of course, they love their owner, Judy, and why wouldn’t they... Dakota and Montana get daily treats, a great bed and pillow for sleeping, shelter, delicious food combined with lots of hugs and petting! The joy dogs bring into our lives also has many health benefits. They can increase opportunities to exercise, get outside, and socialize. Regular walking or playing with pets can decrease blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and triglyceride levels. Pets can help manage loneliness and depression by giving us companionship. Yesterday I had to leave early, and Dakota partially walked me down the hallway as she was walking back to the office, she was looking back at me several times as I said goodbye. She then realized I was leaving, and she walked back with her head lowered as to say I am sad now. My heart melted! Pet owners please share how your pets light up your life!
