Owning a dog could just be the best thing for your health
Six years ago we were lucky enough to get our gorgeous furry son Jaspar. We got him partly because we wanted a dog and partly to make me do my exercise every day, which I do as I owe it to him! Isn’t it funny though, as much as I know how important exercising daily is and I enjoy it, it is Jaspar that makes me go walking EVERY day – rain, hail or shine!!
Here is a beautiful story of how a rescue dog saved a very unhealthy man…warning, this could make you cry (I did!)
Eric & Peety (from Humane Society Silicon Valley)Eric weighed over 300 pounds, had type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and his doctor told him he would be dead in 5 years unless he changed. They suggested a dog. Eric went to the Humane Society Silicon Valley and said he wanted an obese, middle-aged dog, so they would have something in common. What happened next transformed their lives.
