Stress and pets

Sometimes life kind of forces us to become more aware of certain things in our lives and that’s what’s happening to me these days. For probably the longest time that I can remember I’ve been extremely happy and everything went well. Then, all of a sudden life offered some contrast and stressful situations.

A dear friend passed on and ever since I had to put a lot more effort into looking for things that pull me out of sadness. And that’s when I realized what an easy way our pets have – to get us out of the blue moods.

For a few days I’ve been taking a brisk walk twice a day – to my neighbors’ house – to feed their dog and two miniature pet goats. These little creatures make me smile every time I get there. They greet me and wag their tails, all excited about getting some food.

And there’s my Chiranian Ally, little dog that simply demands my attention a few times a day, makes me laugh because she is so funny, and puts me straight into loving, appreciative attitude. I have to admit that I feel impressed and thankful very often – by how easily and quickly my feelings get transformed in the presence of beloved pets.
