Thanksgiving is a good time to be thankful for all members your family – maybe even and especially your furry ones. According to a new study of more than 3.4 million people by Scientific Reports, owning a dog is linked to a longer life. It’s part of a growing body of evidence suggesting that our pets are beneficial in more ways than we thought.
The season of gratitude is the perfect time to paws and reflect on the three most important ways dogs and cats help their human beings: physically, mentally and even (and most importantly) spiritually.
Hopefully your holidays are festive and relatively stress free – but if they’re not, you have only to turn to your four-legged friends for tidings of comfort and joy. Maybe even slip them some left-over turkey while you're at it!
