Alicyn Roy of Merchant Services on The Joys of Owning a Dog
There is a reason the dog has earned the nickname of “man’s best friend.” They are loyal, loving, friendly companions that have been bringing joy to their owners since they were first domesticated several tens of thousands of years ago. With their playful personalities and devoted love, dogs are the perfect human companion. These intelligent creatures impress us with their skill, make us laugh with their fun-loving personalities, and win our love with their fierce loyalty.
When you own a dog you know you have a friend that will love you unconditionally. They will be there, waiting and excited, when you come home after a long day at work. They’ll be there to run with you in the park when you want to play and to snuggle up to you when you are.
In addition, a dog can also provide protection. Dogs have been known to alert families when there is a fire. They’ve been known to protect their owners from intruders. And even taking your dog with you for your morning jog can keep you safe from predators.
Studies have shown that owning a dog can help lower blood pressure, boost your immunity and even ward off depression. Both your physical and mental health can be improved by dog ownership. Dogs simply have the ability to make us happy. It’s a kind of happiness that can spill over into all aspects of your life.
