Our house is definitely better with a dog in it.
We have had dogs almost all our married lives and now in retirement we have the perfect dog for us. He's gentle, loving and happy to be dressed up by the grandchildren but more importantly , he gives Grampy a reason to get out for a long walk every day.
When the vet recently mentioned gently that Sam was looking a bit' portly' it spurred both Sam and Grampy on to take more exercise ( and lose weight !) Now Grampy is 4 stone lighter, Sam is at the perfect weight for his breed and our house is very much a home !
