I figure we probably don’t really need to know the science behind why we love our dogs so much, but it’s interesting reading anyway. I’m pretty sure we all know that dogs can help lower our stress levels…there is nothing quite like a constant friend who will patiently listen to you rant, look at you with understanding and then lick your face and want nothing in return but to sit beside you and comfort you. But if you do need to know the science, this short little Huffington Post article gives you the basics. I’m a day late, but I respectfully offer this to you dog lovers in honor of National Dog Day yesterday. Enjoy!
