For many of us, our four-legged friends hold a unique place in the family. Our little Westie, Sugar, is definitely part of our family. She never ceases to make me smile, especially when she’s attacking bubble wrap.
Dogs often seem to know when someone is sad or stressed and Sugar always knows when something is bothering me. When I’m feeling down, she always comes over to me and lays under my feet, just to provide some warmth. She’s so sweet!
The unconditional love given by a dog can help people with illnesses or in need of certain therapy. They’re good watch dogs who can look after us and know when something is wrong. When my youngest was a baby, Sugar would always look at us and bark whenever he cried. It’s like she was telling me to go take care of him now! I have never experienced a therapy dog nor do I know someone who has, but Cesar believes that a relationship with a dog can truly improve every life, including people in need. Dogs are capable of lowering stress, anxiety and even blood pressure.
Cesar created the Share a Story and Share the Love initiative, a social media campaign to help support and spotlight therapy dog organizations, to ensure people in need continue to receive the powerful benefits of a dogs unconditional love. The Share a Story and Share the Love campaign encourages dog lovers to share the heartwarming stories of therapy dogs through their social media communities such as Facebook and Twitter. In return, Cesar will share the love with three therapy dog organizations through donations that help continue the services they provide to people in need.
Disclosure: I wrote this review while participating in an ambassador program by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Cesar and received product samples and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
