Thanksgiving is all about spending time with the ones we love and appreciating the things we have in life. This November, think back to the day your dog came into your home and became a member of your family. You and your best friend have been through a lot together throughout the years.
1. Best Friend for Life
Your little buddy will always be there to put a smile on your face. Whether it’s getting that excited greeting when you walk in the door after a long day of work or when they can sense if something is wrong. Just like you are there to care for them each and every day, they are there for you in return to comfort you no matter what.
2. Exercising More
Not only do our best friends get us up and moving for daily walks, but they also help us pursue fun activities together! Many health benefits come with walking our dogs daily. There are so many different things to do with our dogs each season. When the leaves are still falling and changing from green to brown, don’t miss out on learning 5 fun fall activities to enjoy while the weather lasts!
3. Our Own Health & Lifestyle
Did you know that according to an article by Health Guide, studies have shown that pet owners over the age of 65 make 30% less doctor visits than those without pets? Dogs help improve overall mood and health of individuals. They also enhance your overall lifestyle when it comes to companionship, meeting new people, reducing anxiety, and more.
4. Saving a Rescue
If you have rescued your dog, you saved a life. You provide a loving home with food and care for your best friend. This Thanksgiving, don’t forget to feel thankful for your actions. Your little pup might not be here without you!
5. They Provide Protection
Our dogs will do anything for us. They love us unconditionally. Our best friends protect our homes from strangers and help to make us feel safe when they are around us.
6. We Love Them Forever
Our best friends mean so much to us and if they live a long, happy, and healthy life, we are thankful. Just remember you are their entire life. Make each day matter!
