How many times have we read a column that says something like: “Having Pets Increases Life Expectancy” or “People Who Have Pets are Happier” or “Taking Care of Pets Cures Depression”? We read that babble all the time, right? Of course, it’s probably true.
Let’s turn the tables: Ask not what your pets can do for you, ask what you can do for your pets!
Some of us might be a little bit worried of late about the economy- national or personal-, the wars, and the national needs in the areas of environmentalism, jobs and unity. If we’re brooding, sullen, lethargic, and introverted, you can be sure our pets are feeling it and they don’t like it. Pets hate arguments and they feel sorrow deeply.
SO, pet owners, we have a mission to put on a happy face for our pets. The relationship goes both ways. Pets cure depression, but depression depresses pets
Let’s get up on our feet, throw that ball, shake that catnip mouse, leash up that bunny and take him out for a late winter hop in the grass. Fido’s gotta cheer up, so put on a happy face!
