We are healthy for you

There are many reasons why we like to be with our humans, but one that often goes unrecognized is the health benefits. Personally, I just adore my human, she loves me, takes care of me.....and yes occasionally spoils me. In return I help her.......she isn't always well and having me around helps keep her calm. The CDC (Center for Disease Control) now recognizes our contribution and a lot of information can be found on their website here
