I agree with you 100% Mary.
I have a beagle and she is the BEST!!! She is the sweetest thing and is always there for me, even more so when I'm ill. She makes a good heating pad too when she curls up next to my tummy
She likes to be in the bathroom with me as well and even more so when she knows that I'm not feeling well. If I look very sick and in the bathroom, she sits there and stares at me as if to say... I'm keeping an eye on you mommy in case something happens. Its so sweet.
Pets are therapy as research has proved time and time again. Thanks for that reminder
