    There is nothing like coming into the room and seeing your pet sleeping on the bed particularly next to you small kids. They look up and give you a look that says “i have got this”.

    Such an adorable pose! We have pet therapy here for seniors. The nice dogs patiently let the seniors pet and hug them. Free hugs!! 😄😃for seniors just like me and my Garfield hugs😊

    Righton! Maggie is better than any medication for stress management. When I got home from the office and after our evening meal, she would perch half on my lap and half on the arm of the chair, and as I stroked her, I could feel the tension ebb away. Ten minutes was all it took.
    Whoever wrote the article that dogs hates hugs have no idea of the benefits of pet ownership. ( You hug your dog, not throttle them!) 🙂

      I remember reading your post on hugging your dog. I agree – a mutual cuddle with your family pet is of benefit to all concerned – not a kid strangling a cat! 🙂

    I agree 1000%!
    I don’t think non pet owners understand the kind of ‘therapy’ a pet can offer. Cuddling with Oreo can not only take my blood pressure down, but make me feel so loved and like there’s no worries in the world. I love starting my weekend mornings out like this. When he hears me wake up, he comes and spoons me, sniffs my eyes and pushes his head into my face for head kisses.
    I seriously don’t understand how anyone can’t benefit from this pure love.
    Little Monkey looks like she lost the fight with a nap 😉

      Thank you for this 🙂
      There are benefits to both pets and owners. Even my bouncy LM will let me hang all over her and hug her when needed! 🙂 Then it’s back to leaping in the air again. 🙂
