Dogs and God

So many choices…

  • I learned about Jesus from our dogs.
  • They constantly forgive me.
  • They treat me no different no matter how I treated them.

Share your pet stories.

Pet Behavior

  • Forget Multitasking:When dogs have a job to do, they give it their undivided attention. It turns out people should probably do the same. Stanford researchers found that attention and memory suffer in those who juggle work, email, and web-surfing, compared to those who focus on one task at a time. Other studies suggest employees actually lose time when multitasking.
  • Take Naps: You won’t catch your pet going from dawn to dusk without any shut-eye.  There’s good evidence humans can benefit from catnaps, too. A study involving about 24,000 people indicates regular nappers are 37% less likely to die from heart disease than people who nap only occasionally. Short naps can also enhance alertness and job performance.
  • Cultivate Friendships: People are social animals, and friendships have measurable health benefits. Researchers in Australia followed 1,500 older people for 10 years. Those with the most friends were 22% less likely to die than those with the fewest friends.

New study shows people and pets exercising together can succeed in fighting obesity epidemic.

Over the course of the 12-month study, both people and dogs lost weight and kept it off: people lost an average of 11 pounds (approximately 5 percent of their initial body weight) and dogs lost an average of 12 pounds (approximately 15.6 percent of their initial body weight). The maximum weight loss for dogs was 35 pounds; for people, the maximum loss was 51 pounds.

Here’s a reality series in which 8 overweight cats and dogs worked and dieted to slim Down for 120 days.
