My partner’s mum has two beautiful labradors that we help look after – I regularly take them for walks and I don’t know who looks forward to these walks more – me or the dogs! These two amazing dogs have been in my life a whole eight months now and they have helped get me through some rocky times, yep, animals can definately do that! They say exercise and looking after animals are two sure ways to keep you in good spirits and I combine both when I walk the dogs for a good half an hour or so whenever I can.
I was feeling very sorry for myself the other day – we all have ’em…you know those days when you just wake up on the wrong side of the bed and things seems to go down hill from there? Yes, it was one of those and I thought to myself….walking the dogs will surely snap me out of this mood and it certainly helped. Here’s some pics I took of the the two beauties on our walking adventure this week.
I just love walking around the park and we’re very lucky as we live near the country so there’s a real country feel to the local park and you feel like you’re out in the sticks. When I’ve got my wellies on and I’m walking through the mud and the dogs are running off on a sniffing adventure – I find it totally clears my mind and helps chill me out.
How awesome are animals?!
What do you do that helps you chill and relax when you’re feeling stressed?
Has having animals helped you in difficult times? Comments welcome!
