Have you ever felt really down-in-the-dumps, only to have your dog jump up onto your lap, leaving you with no choice but to give him a little smile? Have you ever noticed an elderly person on a park bench looking off into the distance, only to light up when you walk by and have your dog say hello? Or maybe you've simply noticed how much calmer you feel once your cat is on your lap purring away. Well, none of these things are just figments of your imagination . . . our pets truly do affect our mood and our health.
