It feels like the beginning of the busy season! In the midst of holiday shopping, cooking, and parties, remember to find time for your pets. Ten minutes with your dog or cat can help you calm down and tune in to what’s important. Taking time for walking is always a healthy choice, but even 5 minutes of play or snuggling can be rewarding.



On that note I am sharing a link to a recent story about animals and stress hormones: it says that people can lower the stress levels of their dogs by talking to them and petting them.

In other words, you do yourself and your pets a kindness when you take time to enjoy their company.
