12 years ago @ I Trust When Dark My Road - The dog days of depres... · 0 replies · +1 points

Oh yeah....absolutely on, though I tend to like cats for depression. But there has even been several research studies that just the act of petting an animal has soothing yet stimulating effects on the brain, the endocrine system, and the immune system.

"What I have found thus far is that owning an animal has filled a niche that I didn’t know existed. A dog just wants to be with you, loves unconditionally, and (despite some occasional poop) is generally pretty easy to care for"

I had to laugh at that because I figured out Jeff was interested in me when I commented on a beautiful dog that I saw, and he said "Get a boyfriend, they are easier." I didn't know whether I was more in shock by the breeching of the subject or that he could think that a guy could be easier than a dog. :D
