Dogs are good for us

I’ve added a new book to my list, Dog Medicindog-medicine.w250e: How My Dog Saved Me From Myself.  It looks great and appears to tell a tale that won’t surprise us animal people – dogs are good for the soul.  I’m sure anyone reading this post is enough of a dog person to have felt the healing effect of canine companionship  during hard emotional times.  I’m looking forward to reading this.

Additionally, this article references research wherein science supports what we dog folks already intuitively know.  “Science is moving in the same direction, with research suggesting that dogs bring down stress levels, encourage physical activity and reduce depression.”
