Dog brings peace
September 13, 2022

By Sherlyn, Gotwals Healthy Press | Healthy Press reporters explained what they do when they feel sad or frustrated. They said they like to:

Pet my dog because he makes me feel calm and my body changes into peacefulness and it feels great. When I am sad I feel weak and have butterflies in my belly, and my dog takes that away. I would recommend others try this if they have a pet.
