Did you know that the Mbeya Indians of the Gran Chaco region of South America believed humans lived underground until dogs dug them out of there?
We don’t know what we’re missing if we don’t have a dog until we get a dog. However, we should better think twice if we can look after a four-legged friend. Because apart from feeding, we should have enough time to walk them at least twice a day, play with them and give them love.
The dog is love. Unconditional love. They radiate love. They teach us to love. And we owe them love.
HAVING A DOG DEVELOPS A WALKING ROUTINE
Our new walking routine is one of the most significant changes occurring in our lives when we get a dog. Especially if the dog’s breed requires long walking, both in terms of time and distance.
We enjoy at least half an hour of walking every day, no matter the season or our mood. Walking pays off. We start the day in a good mood and release the stress after work.
EVEN MORE HEALTH BENEFITS
Dogs can protect us from health issues. Children who are born into families with a dog have a lower risk of developing asthma and allergies. Older people who live with a pet have a better chance of recovering after a severe illness because they worry about the future of their furry friend.
THERE IS ALWAYS SOMEONE WAITING FOR US
There’s nothing more melting than coming home and having someone waiting by the door all day. Our dog jumps up and gets excited, as if they haven’t seen us for weeks. That moment can brighten even the worst day.
EXPANDING OUR SOCIAL CIRCLE
We’ll see how walking our dog will introduce us to new people. Our pets will find other four-legged to play with, and we’ll socialize with their owners. We may also meet the love of our life this way.
WE ARE BECOMING MORE RESPONSIBLE
Taking care of our pets is like taking care of a child. We may be sleepy in the morning, but we know we need to get out of bed and pay attention to our dog. Sometimes they’ll piss us off by making mischief, but we can’t stay mad at our buddy for long.
ENJOYING THE SMALL THINGS IN LIFE
While watching our dog get excited about the small things, appreciate the world more. We are that busy overthinking our problems, so we miss how wonderful life is. Our pets rejoice when they have caught the stick once again and bring it to us with pride. How can this not make us happy?
ALWAYS IN A GOOD COMPANY
Indeed, dogs are human’s best friends. Always be there for us, whatever we do, and we will never feel lonely. Any activity will be more enjoyable in the company of our dog. Dogs entertain us and make us laugh for hours.
UNCONDITIONAL PURE LOVE
We have gone through a tough breakup and think no one loves us? Think again! We are the only ones existing for our dogs, and their love is unconditional. Best of all, we feel that love every day and reciprocate with the same.
OUR HOME SHINES LIKE A BALLROOM
Our home has never been cleaner, but it’s also never been such a mess. Strange paradox. Before we get a dog, we can forget minor items, cosmetics, jewelry, and ornaments less than a meter and a half above the ground. Now our home is clean, and the floor shines like a ballroom.
THE NEW EXPERIENCE
Finally, let’s mention the inexplicable feeling that we have experienced something new; we have touched another creature; we have communicated with them in a way beyond words. That special feeling makes our life happy and fulfilled.
Last but not least, if you’re considering getting a dog, don’t turn down the opportunity to check out the nearest pet shelter. There, you will eventually come across amazing creatures who, in exchange for the chance of a new life you’ll give them, are ready to return endless love and loyalty.
