Dogs are Medicine

Dogs are Medicine

My dogs are my absolute best friends. They're always happy to see me when I walk in the door, even if I was just there a minute before. They exude unconditional love, patience and warmth. 

I can not imagine a world without pets. I need them just as much as they need me. When I don't feel well emotionally, they're laying their head in my lap, making me feel loved. When I don't feel well physically, they're curled up beside me like a heated blanket that makes my pain dissipate. There is nothing that makes me happier than seeing my dogs running down a dirt road or a hiking trail with their tails wagging and their ears flapping. 

If you have never known the love of a dog, you're missing out. Go to your local shelter and see how many beautiful dogs are desperate to bust out and have a comfortable home of their own. Their needs are simple, they just want love, food and comfortable place to rest and sleep.

There is no doubt that some dogs require a bit more patience or work than others. If you want a companion and don't have time to work with a puppy, get an older dog. Older dogs are amazing, calm companions. I have one rescue pup who has had two leg surgeries, chewed through three dog beds and two down comforters. Would I trade her for anything? Absolutely not. She is my rock, my ride or die and I love her with all of my heart.
