Thank you Lord for fur love!!! I have a suspicious eye for people who hates dogs. I brought one of my fur babies, Jada, with me to the hospice (she is a hospice volunteer). She pranced around the halls, only to come across a woman who angrily stated “Get that dog away from me! I HATE dogs.” Unfortunately, her tone startled Jada. Jada backed up and looked up at me with a bewildered look on her cute face. Afterwhile everyone started playing with her and the dog hater inched closer to Jada and said: “she seems like a nice dog.”
Luckily for me, I get to experience the purest kind of love … fur love … and I thank God every day! You might think fur love is an opinion; however, there is proof that it is more than just my opinion! There is scientific proof that they are good medicine, they make the best cuddle buddies and they offer the best form of unconditional love.
The Scientific Evidence that Fur Love is Good Medicine
Only other animal lovers can understand the feeling I get when I see or even think about my pets. My pets bring me comfort when I am sick. They even make me forget about my ailments! Interestingly, there is evidence that pets are good for your health.
My Jada is the Best Spooner … Ever
I am pretty low maintenance when I am sick; however, it is no longer the case. My six yea old Poodle, Jada has spoiled me! Before Jada, I would just want someone to check on me every now and again and make sure someone wakes me up every few hours so that I can drink water to stay hydrated. I discovered the comfort of cuddling with my soft, fluffy Jada. Now ,I look forward to my afternoon naps spooning with my fur baby!
Fur Love is Secure Love
According to statistics, 60% of adults have experienced abuse in their childhood. That means six out of ten Daley Word blog subscribers make up that population. The long-term effects of that abuse is a jacked up self-esteem and self-worth. I am in the company of that 60% of my subscribers. If you want to know what unconditional love feels like, get a 4-legged baby!
Experience the Purest Love God has Given us for Yourself!
Some people have fear of dogs based on a bad experience. I have a feeling that a loving puppy can cure them of that trauma. There is both anecdotal and scientific data that imply fur babies are good for you. I know they have been great alternative medicine and therapy for me and I am so grateful … even on a Monday!
Shout your gratitude from the mountain top! Foot soldiers, always remember that gratitude improves your attitude and increases your blessings. GM everyone!!!
