The Healing Power of a Pup

Meet Zeus, my havanese morkie, aka the apple of my eye and fur baby. We brought Zeus home on Dec 23, 2017, and he's been giving me LIFE ever since.

2017 was one of the worst years of my life. London's too. I was sick more often than not, and our quality of life took a major hit. We also had to say goodbye to our first dog, Samson. Bringing home a little furball with a personality as BIG as his name was exactly what we needed.

Within months, I felt better - physically, mentally, and emotionally. Celiac can be very isolating. Cue depression! Zeus saved me in more ways than one and continues to be the best "medicine" for my chronic illness.

Here's why:

  • He makes sure we're active daily

  • He gets my mind off the pain

  • He reminds me to be silly and have fun

  • He teaches me to live in the moment

  • He makes my heart smile.

Got a healing pup/pet that makes you feel the same? What have they helped you through?
