Five Ways that Pets Add Life!

Another Havanese photo shoot at a recent play day we attended!
Have you ever noticed how people light up when they start talking about their pets? From business settings to meeting folks on airplanes, I've noticed that once pets come up in the conversation, there's no stopping people from sharing details about their pet's antics!

Pets are the great equalizer. They lighten the mood, create a reason to share a smile and bring a sense of calm to their owners.

And that's why it makes us happy to support the Pets Add Life campaign, dedicated to promoting the positive role pets play in the health and well being of people, families and communities. To help spread the word about the joy of pet ownership, Pets Add Life will be introducing some new videos this year, including one with a talking Guinea Pig (who doesn't love a chatty rodent!)

So what else do pets do? Look at the photo above and you'll see a group of folks and pets I never would have met, if it weren't for Cosmo Havanese! Just by having a Havanese, I've met a fabulous group of people and learned whole lot about responsible pet ownership, responsible breeders and the amazing pets you can find from Havanese Rescue.

Happy Havanese!
My top five ways pets add life:
  1. Pets are always happy to see you
  2. Pets keep you healthy-- take a dog walk or a hike! 
  3. Pets are a great conversation starter -- people stop me all the time to talk about Cosmo
  4. Pets are perfect cuddlers and will help relieve your stress
  5. Pets are perfect! I can't imagine life without pets and all the fabulous pet people I've met! 
How do pets add to your life?

    I know that I make my family smile every day, and I also get to go and see people in retirement homes as part of my job as a Therapy Dog, that way I get to make lots of people smile! :)

    Your pal Snoopy :)
