The Lifestyle Chronicles - Best Friend

Harry Truman is quoted as saying that "if you want a friend in Washington, get a dog". That was true in his day and it is even more true today. Furthermore, he was usually "giving them hell" while he was walking. It must have been Harry's way of boosting his mood. He was a politician so it would be difficult to know if it was the walking or the talking.

The February issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine reported a study by researchers at the University of Victoria in British Columbia. They found that dog owners walked an average of 300 minutes a week compared to 168 minutes a week for the people without dogs. A dog is a buddy you can always count on.

"Dear Lord, please help me be the kind of person my dog thinks I am!"
