I read Keeva’s and Kae’s stories about their pets, and the value that they bring to their lives. It got me to thinking about some articles that I’ve read about the therapeutic values that pets offer, from stress relief to companionship pets can be wonderful attributes to our lives! I personally believe in the therapeutic value of having pets in your life. If I’m sad, my puppy is there. If I’m stressed, my puppy is there. When I get home from a rough day of work, my puppy is there. There is very little that is more relaxing than just letting her sit in your lap and petting her :)
Inspired by both Keeva and Kae, I thought I’d share my little barking bundle with everyone as well! (Yes, this is she who has to have her say in vent as well!)
We got Kalie when she was about 7 weeks old. She was such a tiny little fluff ball that fit into my hand.
Here she is today. Not quite as small…but still a fluff ball of fun!
And uh….I was playing with my Kevin Smith iPhone app. But it was still cute!
How about you all? What do you do to de-stress from the day? Is there a fluff ball in your life?
