Pets Not Pills

Here's a sweet story from Janie Andrews of Keoland TV, reminding us in a direct way just how good that oxytocin gush we get from pets feels.  A cancer doctor at the Mayo Clinic tells the reporter that his dogs ease the stress of his profession, and he knows pets are good for our health in general. Andrews writes,

"... perhaps the best part about pets is explained in a greeting card quote written by a man who rescued a neglected pup. Dr. Creagan says, "I get teary eyed reading this: Many a time he pulled me away from my solitude, my greed and my anger. He covered me with kisses. Did I save him, I wondered? Or did he save me?"

Ahhh. I'm feeling a little oxytocin rush myself, right now.
