Vitamin P

Who knew Vitamin P was so beneficial?

I know for me, pet therapy is better than any pill or drug, and I believe wholly there are so many health benefits to having pets. Its a huge misconception that hunters hate animals....couldn't be any furhter from the truth. I'd still rather eat an animal that didn't know it was going to die that I harvested myself....BECAUSE I love animals (and cows) that much.

I hope the alberta legislation changes for having pack dogs for hunting season to help bring your game out. The amount of grizzly deaths alone or bear encounters would be greatly decreased simply by having your dogs with you. I'm ok with bear hunting, but not the unnecessary bear deaths that happen when they come rollin' into camp.

Anyhoo, thought this was a great article. And I'm curious how many of us have animals and believe in vitamin P :) ?

Something so therapeutic about a purring cat on you....I swear there's healing properties with the rythyms lol. And dogs....they are so awesome. I can't pick which I love more lol.

Dogs or cats? And why? I think cats are better for cuddles, but dogs are better for loyalty and activity abilities you can be so much more interactive with a dog than a cat lol.

On my lap is Lady. She's been on me since I got home :)

I had a large Chesapeake male who slept between the war department & myself.  In the middle of the night, when the grandkids were here, he would park himself on one of their bunks.  The girls could take him out without a leash, command him to heel, sit, and when they were to cross a street, he would sit in front of them and not let them move.  He would look left & right, and when he felt it was safe, he would cross with the girls in tow.  Let a stranger come near them, and there was a commotion, because Max felt that he owned them.  A hell of a hunter-a winged Canada gander did not have a chance.  All in all, the best pet that we ever owned!!!

You bet! Pets are very therapeutic. I have a buddy that's a maniac depressant and was on God knows how many different kinds of meds. One of his councillors suggested he buy a dog, which he did.
His new friend seem to pull him right out of it. Didn't cure him and he still fights with the disease but he's a hellava lot better than what he was.

I'm a dog lover and like spending time with my pooches, if I had my way they would live inside with me but my wife says no. Ok I'm not crazy (at least I don't think so,  lol ) and I remember times in my past that were hard. If I didn't have my dog to help me through some of those tough times I probably would have went bongers.....     Bongers?? Maybe I am crazy!!   lol  :o

Omg cute pic!

Some days I think my dog should live outside, as he is a stink machine....but I can't say no to those big brown eyes lol. My dog just got dropped off by his sitter, and now we have the whole pack back together and it finally feels like I'm home.

Walleyes, you're so right. A house doesn't feel like a home without a dog :) almost like the maison mascot lol.

Having pets and responsibility when you're going thru hard times sure is the only thing that got me thru some crappy times too. And also having a pet to worry about helped me pull my head outta my arse when I was being a brat lol.

I think the fact that animals live in the present is the most inspiring thing about them. They are always so unconditional. They are predictable. Simple. And honest. I wish more humans could be like pets lol.

Except I'd be less forgiving over a person eating my garbage lol.

Axeman, that pic is calendar worthy! Actually, so is Miss Bunny lol.

Pretty sure there's a disclaimer on the man card that cat guys are still men :)

Great pics everyone, keep 'em comin!

Here is my old buddy.  got him when I was in University and he died last year at the tender age of 17.  He was 23 lbs when he was one year old.  At that size he almost qualified as a dog as well.  LOL

We usually have at least one dog around the place.  And sometimes a cat.
Labs and lab crosses are favourites. 

The black is a Lab/Springer X and the brown is a Lab/Chesapeake, the yellow is all Lab.  We now have a Lab/Irish Setter X

Here are the new family members.  This is my daughter and her new cat (my cat took to her and spent his last 11 years with her) and my wife's tea cup yorkie (sorry for the cone in the pic but it was the only one on my work computer LOL).  Anyway, the family loves the pets and I am pretty sure they will always be around.  The White dog is my German Short Haired pointer who is 14 now.  She stills looks good but she damaged her ACL and is on glucosamine for the rest her life now.  She is still bad and manages to steal food off the counter every once in a while as well!!  LOL
