Today is National Love your Pet Day –a special day dedicated to celebrating the pure love that pets bring to our lives. It is also a day to raise awareness to the need for care of pets. There are places in some parts of the world that have special programs and events dedicated to issues surrounding pets that include animal cruelty, adoption, shelter and grooming.
If you have a pet, give it a smooch today.
And since dogs are the most common pet (aside from cats), I read from some studies on human and animal interaction that dogs’ kisses may be making you healthier because of the probiotic element of it. A study from researchers at the University of Arizona that microbes in a dog’s gut can encourage the growth of positive microorganisms in humans.
Since I don’t have a puppy, I will just be happy to buy myself some yogurt for my dose of probiotic today.
