My dorky Lhasa-poo taking a selfie lying down after a hard day of doing absolutely nothing. It’s exhausting being a dog! Did you know that loving a pet lowers your blood pressure? Pet owners tend to live longer than non-pet owners and they have less depression and anxiety. And that folks is how I turn a cute dog photo into a health lesson. No, I do not have the medical references to back up my statistics but I know it’s true. Trust me, I’m a doctor.
