Our three Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. These are sweet, happy dogs who often accompany our podcasts with their snoring, barking, and collar shakes.
Dogs make life better — in fact, research shows that dog owners outlive and are happier than other people (see “Why dog owners life longer,” “Do dog owners live longer?” and “Live Like Royalty: The Many Health Benefits of Dogs, Man’s Best Friend.”)
There are many reasons for this, including the benefits of caring for another being, exercise, regularity of personal schedules, stress-relief when petting them, and so on, but we believe it’s because for dogs, every day is like Christmas. And dog joy is extremely contagious.
