Companion animals enrich our lives. Research shows that pet owners have less illness, recover faster from serious health conditions, and tend to be happier than people who do not own pets. And a special bonus for dog owners: since you’ll need to walk and play with your dog, it encourages you to get more exercise yourself.
My dogs, Asha & Ajax, are the third generation of Rhodesian Ridgebacks that I’ve owned. I seek out this breed because they thrive in hot, dry climates, making them the perfect companion animals for those who like to be out and about in the Arizona heat. Their affectionate natures always lift my spirits at the end of a long, stressful day.
