TOP TEN REASONS TO GET A DOG

  1. Unconditional love.

 

  1. Always-available playmate.

 

  1. Protector. Whether real or imagined isn’t the issue. It’s a warm body for when you’re scared.

 

  1. Meet and greeter. Dogs are kind of like a welcome wagon to spread warmth and love in your home.

 

  1. Good for feng shui! Dogs move energy, which helps release stagnation, something feng shui experts say is important for good chi.

 

  1. Exercise. You have to walk the dog; it will get you outside.

 

  1. Practice “being. Dogs seem to be able to do nothing and it somehow rubs off on you. You just get to relax naturally with them.

 

  1. Miracle workers. Dogs know sometimes what you need even before you do. There are all kinds of savior stories with dogs.

 

  1. Fun! Dogs love to play in the snow, roll in the grass or dirt, and hike in the woods.

 

  1. Our inner child. Dogs bring out the inner child in all of us. And if that leads to greater warmth, connection, and healing, how can that not be a good thing?
