Happiness Is A Dog!

Happiness is a dog? Yes, I have it on good authority that if you have a dog, you’re are likely to be a happier and healthier person.

If you don’t believe me, read this:

“It is possible that dogs can directly promote our well-being by buffering us from stress. The ownership of a dog can also lead to increases in physical activity and facilitate the development of social contacts, which may enhance physiological and psychological human health in a more indirect manner.” ~  Dr Deborah Wells from Queen’s University, Belfast.

And if you don’t believe in scientific proof, take this picture as evidence!

“Whoever said you can’t buy happiness forgot little puppies.” ~ Gene Hill

If you can’t own a dog, go borrow your neighbor’s pooch!

  1. My husb is a dog lover
    THey have a mini zoo at his place in Vizag . Two cats Missy , Moti
    and A DOG- Brandy – which is quite ferocious
    I was too scared in the beginning later I understood it can be tamed
    I loved seeing their tactics , fights etc etc

  2. Ah, two very handsome men, eh, Rorinne Codrigues 😛 Love the post Pablo! And someday I’ll whisk you away, promise…..Happiness, I have come to believe also lingers around in owning a cat. Occasionally, but yup it is there. 😀

  3. I cried my heart out when my dogs died and then again when my guinea pigs died. It’s too hard a loss to take so no more pets. But they all brought me infinite joy. Lovely pic – so sweet.

  4. Your Dad looks really pleased to see you in that photo, Pablo! I know what you mean about dog = happiness. Unfortunately I don’t own one, but I make friends with the nearest at any gathering. 🙂

    Take care, buddy.

  5. I’ve been thinking this for years, but haven’t bit the bullet and committed to a dog yet (I want to be very sure that I can afford one–I’d hate for us to get attached and then have to be separated!). But I know right in the depths of my soul, with or without corroborrating studies, that having a dog would be fabulous for me. 🙂

  6. Such a great picture! Man’s best friend indeed! I used to have a dog and then a cat each for many years. I may have to get another one, as you are right, they do bring a lot of happiness and joy!
