The benefits of having a dog in the home are multiple layered
- Exercise 2 or 3 walks a day are good exercise for you both
- Getting away from the roads and the throng of civilisation
- I challenge any dog owner to tell me they don’t share their innermost thoughts (god help us if they ever learn to talk)
- Stroking a dogis therapeutic for both you and the dog although Stella does tell you where she wants stroking.
I think you get the point, for some of us dogs are a professional interest but even that stems from a love of dogs.

Sure there are drawbacks to having a dog but the pro’s far outway the con’s
