You’ll never be able to convince us that there is anything better in life than puppy paws, puppy breath, or cat snuggles. Don’t even try.
We love our fur friends. In fact, we’re definitely of the opinion that our dogs, Rifle, Rosie, Winnie, and Chester, make our family complete. They bring so much joy to our days with their boundless energy, enthusiastic greetings, and daily antics. We love when they push their way onto our laps for some attention and they make us laugh when they lay right in the middle of the clean pile of laundry. Sure, they sometimes track mud into the house or get into things they shouldn’t, but it’s worth the rare moments of frustration to experience their boundless affection. (To follow along with their craziness, check out @thebrittanyquartet on Instagram!)
Besides the endless cuddles, unconditional love, and loyal companionship that pets provide, there may be actual physical health, mental health, and other lifestyle benefits to owning a pet. Science says! We know some people don’t think they’re animal people, but there is almost no downside to welcoming a pet into your home! Having a pet lowers stress, promotes physical activity, and may even affect the quantity and quality of your relationships. People who have pets have been shown to have lower blood pressure and lower rates of heart disease. Pet owners report significantly higher rates of physical activity than non-pet owners. Researchers have also found that dog owners specifically report less loneliness and less symptoms of depression that non-dog owners. Pretty cool, right? Basically, according to science, there are a ton of benefits to having a pet. That’s why we think a dog, cat, rabbit, or other animal makes a paw-some addition to any family!
