While I was on a fun date with a very cute and tall guy I had to ask my deal breaker question. “Do you like dogs.” Then he responded, “I am not really that into dogs. I mean, I don’t hate them ” And with that statement all the visions that I had of out perfect life together, with 2.5 children a white pickette fence with my dog faded away. At that point, all I wanted to do was go end this date. I told my sister and she said that I was being too extreme. She asked “why does your mate have to love dogs. That is just another thing to add to your already long list.”
That statement made me look at my list of must-haves and realize that a lot of the other qualities are superficial and need to be edited. But I know that I am a dog person for life. I want to live a life with a dog as a part of my family. And I want a mate who wants the same; for me it is like being with a man who does not want to have children but I am sure that I do. No one would then say that I was being too picky plus there are many benefits to having a dog in your life according to a K9 magazine.
Research shows that the group of pet lovers receiving the greatest benefit from their pets is dog owners. “It is possible that dogs can directly promote our well-being by buffering us from stress, one of the major risk factors associated with ill-health. The ownership of a dog can also lead to increases in physical activity and facilitate the development of social contacts, which may enhance both physiological and psychological human health in a more indirect manner,” Dr. Wells said in an interview with England based dog magazine, K9 Magazine (K9 News).
As far as I am concerned, as stressful as life can be being a dog owner will help to ensure a long and happy life. Therefore, dogs owners should stay away from people who are not.
