Thanks, Cal!
Pets are known for their "healing" abilities: they keep the blood pressure good, they remove stress, help to relax and all they want for exchange is a little bit of love and attention. And then there are also dogs who can smell illnesses like diabetes or epilepsy. They are their wight worth in gold...

Pets are a salvation - I prefer cats in the city - but if I ever find myself in the country (quite unlikely) a dog would be wonderful!
