O[sg_popup id=”1″][/sg_popup][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]A great “therapy” for stressed out caregivers: “Love a Dog.” If you don’t have one, ask if a friend will allow you to love on their dog. Within moments, a loving dog will help lighten your heart, calm your nerves, and generally (and genuinely) help your disposition improve!

Most caregivers I know ( including myself) don’t require exotic distractions, we are looking for comfort, calm, and love.  Dogs just beg to give that to people, so spend time with a four-footed friend!

By the way, this is Mack, our Australian Shepherd.  He is the most wonderful dog we’ve ever had the pleasure of having in our family.  He gets intro trouble sometimes, but he’s a dear …and he wakes up happy and ready to love …EVERYDAY![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_video link=”https://youtu.be/Efplspp9Ppg”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
