The answer is YES, YES, YES! Pets… just what the doctor ordered! It has been scientifically proven that having a pet helps to lower blood pressure, improve your mood and definitely make you smile more often which makes you a happier, healthier individual all around.
Anyone that has ever bonded with an animal knows this already, but for those of you who don’t… check it out! As I always say Pets are the BEST THERAPISTS you’re ever gonna get for FREE! They’ll listen until you get it all out. You can cry on them until their fur is wet and some have even been known to comfort you by licking your tears away.
Those little bundles of love with fur can always get into your heart like no human can. They are the perfect cure for loneliness. Who is it that can understand you without speaking a word and love you unconditionally and accept you no matter what you look like, smell like or what mood your in? Your pet that’s who!
Pets totally get us, accept us for who we are… no judgement comes from them EVER. They put up with our music, weird smells, unusual living arrangements and not to mention people. They never get asked their opinion about a matter or situation (except for Beijo I talk to him about EVERYTHING! ) but are always up for anything just as long as they can be included and loved.
You couldn’t ask for a more loyal friend or family member for that matter. They are always glad to see you when you get home (no matter how long they have been waiting) and what a welcomed sight they are after a long hard day… a sight for sore eyes for sure.
I know personally speaking I couldn’t picture my life without Beijo. I look forward to our special times like watching my favorite movie snuggled up together, or sharing my favorite yogurt, playing hide and seek, spooning while I sleep and just having the luxury to have him around when I’m working.
My wish is for everyone to experience the unconditional love of a pet of their own and it is my mission in life to bring this to fruition. This is why it is especially harsh and cruel to just discard a pet so easily from their home because of misunderstood behavior or old age. They are jewels that should be cherished and appreciated.
Having a pet is great! For a lot of people they help get them out and walking, playing, talking and care taking for more than themselves. Pets in my opinion make a household complete… they make it a home. Nobody has ever died of loneliness having a pet around, they keep the joint jumping :).
Pets are a great companion for children (just remember to watch them carefully and teach them to respect their animal as part of the family… no abuse here please).
Or what about your elderly family member? what a great friend a pet could be for them. A lot of our elders need companionship to fill their days with joy and usefulness pets fill that space wonderfully. Not to mention they will get them to stay active.
I could go on and on how pets are beneficial to our health, emotionally as well as physically but I think you get the idea Pets are so much more than cute fluffy things to dress up (all though that’s perfectly fine if they’re into it ). They are living beings worthy of respect and love… until next time give your fur babies a smooch & hug from me!
REMEMBER PETS RULE!
