You know when you feel really rubbish, when you have those days when nothing is going your way and you just want to cry?

Well, when you have those days, how do my canine friends make you feel?

We’re there for you, aren’t we? We know when you’re down and we know that we can try and make you feel a little bit better.

When my human feels sad, I wander over to her and put my head on her knee. I don’t need to do any more than that. I look at her and as she looks back at me the magic of oxytocin makes us both feel better.

I don’t have to say anything, I couldn’t even if wanted to. I don’t have to solve the problem, have any advice or have any answers. I just have to be there. I want to be there.

I bet you can think of someone in your life who’s not having the best day today. Is there someone in your life who just needs to know that they’re not alone? You don’t have to do anything other than let them know you care.

You might never know the difference you can make by simply being there.

Whose day are you going to brighten today?
