There Are No Bad Days When Kilo the Pug is Around
There is no doubt in my mind that a dog can brighten your day. How can a day be bad when it begins with a happy wagging tail and pug kisses to wake you up?
Dogs have this innate ability to increase your mood dramatically. Taking a break from the stress of everyday life to have a cuddle or go for a walk can do wonders for reducing stress.
