Owning A Dog Makes You 10 Years YOUNGER!

Posted July 18th, 2014 @ 12:49pm

In case you did not know already, dogs can keep us young and chipper!! So if you have yet to get a dog, you better go get one LOL... 10 years younger??? Its TRUE!

The Preventative Medicine journal recently published a story that took a look at 547 elderly people's lives, all living within approximately 60 miles from each other. The interesting part of this study was that the elderly folks with the dogs experienced significantly lower levels of anxiety and depression. In addition, they were more encouraged to participate in daily physical activity. 

Soooo... look at that face!! How can you resist?? That face can make you happier, more physically active, AND YOUNGER!!
