Long live pet owners!

It’s true! Pet owners recovering from a heart attack tend to outlive those who don’t own. Buddy learned that and a few other cool facts about the benefits of owning a dog or cat in this article citing a new study. Among his favorite findings was this passage: “pet owners had greater self-esteem, were more physically fit, tended to be less lonely, were more conscientious, were more extraverted, tended to be less fearful and tended to be less preoccupied than non-owners.” Yeah, dogs and cats!
