FUNNY RUBBISH: Is stroking a dog therapeutic for you?

by Janice Cresis

Some people like to squeeze a rubber ball when they want to feel better.

Ok, so maybe not. I just saw that in some movies and stuff.

But I'm sure many people do actually do such a something that they find therapeutic.

Personally, I have a small fluffy dog. I squeeze him and stroke him when I want to feel better.

He of course feels fantastic immediately from it. He loves it. When I stop, he presses his head into my hands and wants some more.

So I do it a little more and then I feel fantastic.

Isn't that incredible? One-way love actually can be good for both parties.
