Those of us who love dogs will not be surprised to hear this. You can live longer with mans best friend.  The special bond between humans and dogs has been scientifically proven to help people live longer.

A lot of research was done and it  has been found that owning a dog "is actively protective against dying of any cause."

There's a 24 percent drop in "cause mortality" for people who have a dog in their life. That's pretty good!!

Also if you walk your dog and  get 30 minutes of extra exercise than those who don't, its even better. Also, petting and playing with your dog can reduce your blood pressure. 

Do you feel better with a pet in your life?
