There are two interesting headlines I thought worth mentioning today. The first, Dogs May Be Healthier For Owners Than Cats. This is something that has always been obvious to me, but now there’s proof! “Researchers say dogs are better than cats at improving their owner’s physical and mental health. A new study also revealed that dog owners have lower cholesterol and blood pressure, fewer minor ailments and are less likely to develop serious medical problems.” This study by Dr Deborah Wells, published in the British Journal of Health Psychology proves that Owning A Dog Is Good For Your Health! “Comparing cat and dog ownership, Dr Wells found evidence that people who take cats and dogs from rescue centres reported reductions in minor health problems such as headaches, dizzy spells and colds as soon as one month after taking their new companion home. However, it was only those people who had taken dogs, as opposed to cats, that still had the improved health conditions up to ten months later.”

Also, Puppy Pubs? Washington state is considering opening bars to dogs. The bill was propsed by State Senator Ken Jacobsen. “The Seattle Democrat says he got the idea after sitting in a popular bar and seeing cold, shivering dogs forced to wait outside for their owners.” I definitely do not condone alcohol comsumption by dogs, but I suppose there’s nothing wrong with taking your small dog out every now and then. I do caution against extremely crowded bars, and those with loud music. Keep an eye out, because your small dog could end up like this:
