My Dog’s Purrrrpose (I Know That’s a Cat, Get Over It)

Hello everyone!  I hope you have all had a great week so far and I hope you are ready for the weekend.

One of the things I always look forward to on the weekends (or maybe a Tuesday and Wednesday depending on my schedule) is seeing all of the dogs at my parents house!  I love all of them, some more than others, but I love them nonetheless.

But dogs are actually really good for our general health.  They help your heart, mind, and body.  Apparently they don’t help the soul like we thought…  Anyway they are very helpful when you need them.

Take our Rozy Blu for example.  She is very very very very very sensitive.  If she sees that you are upset, she will come and comfort you.  She is a cuddle bug and always knows how to make you feel better.

I believe sometimes, dogs are better than best friends.  They won’t judge you when you are ugly crying.  They listen to all of your problems without interrupting you to tell you their problems.  They (usually) will let you cuddle them and use them as a squishy stress ball.  How many best friends will let you do that?

But dogs are great for your health as well.  Dogs can help lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases!  They can also boost your immune system and help you get the recommended amount of weekly exercise.  Trust me, taking all 5 of our dogs out for a daily walk is a challenge in itself.

Did you know that dogs can be trained to help with more health issues than you think?  Dogs can be trained to identify when someone is having a seizure, help to aid in occupational or speech therapy, and even detect different forms of cancer.  They are smart and they can definitely be more helpful than you think!

So as I close this up, I love all of the furry pooches.  Ezzy, Scamp, Rozy, Munchy, and the newest edition Maggie.  They can be annoying at times, but for the most part they are the awesome!

And to end this, post a picture of your fur babies in the comments below so we can celebrate them altogether!  Also here are my parents cats and my cats just so they don’t feel left out.
