We all know pets are amazing, but yet again studies show those who care for pets—especially dogs and cats—are much better at coping with stress. One study showed that among people who had had heart attacks, pet owners had one fifth the death rate of those who did not have pets. And another study revealed evidence that individuals experienced a statistically significant drop in blood pressure in response to petting a dog or cat. Bottom line, dogs and cats help our health, but the reason we choose to share our lives with them is much greater than that. They give us joy, humble us with their non-judgmental approach to life and expand our perspective on the magic of each and every day.
As you look for fun activities to do with your dog, be sure and mark April and July as Dinner with Your Dog months at Wild River Grille. Set along the beautiful Truckee River, Wild River has beautiful outdoor dining and encourages folks to bring their dogs. A percentage of proceeds goes to Shakespeare.
