There are roughly FORTY puppies ready for adoption from the Humane Society right now. Just think what a little puppy cuddling, puppy breath and puppy teeth could add to you overall quality of life! It’s not just me, people, I’ve got research to prove it:
“Now there’s new research from the University of Missouri-Columbia suggesting the hormonal changes that occur when humans and dogs interact could help people cope with depression and certain stress-related disorders. Preliminary results from a study show that a few minutes of petting our pet dog prompts a release of a number of “feel good” hormones in humans, including serotonin, prolactin and oxytocin.”
There you have it. You need some puppy love!
