May you find yourself in the world…and may you enjoy the company!

From the StarMetro, April 9, 2019

The survey shows that dog owners are about twice as likely as cat owners to say that they are very happy.

For starters, there is little difference  between pet owners and non-owners when it comes to happiness.

When you break the data down by type-cats, dogs or both-a stunning divide emerges. Dog owners are about twice as likely as cat owners to say they're very happy, with people owning both falling somewhere in between.

Dog people, in other words are slightly happier than those without any pets. Those in the cat camp, on the other hand, are significantly less happy than the petless.

I no longer have a pet, but I like dogs. Whenever I see someone walking a dog, and no matter how grumpy they look, I always tell them "nice dog", and immediately there whole being lightens up, and they say, "yes, isn't he/she." There is a total personality change ,and a much happier expression.

The owners get the same happy expression.
