Let Us Give Thanks for Our Dogs

Doctor Balance
By Amber Keiper

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and frankly, I can’t wait! It is one of my favorite holidays of the year for many reasons. Not only do I get to spend some time in the kitchen cooking with my mom and my mother-in-law, Sue, but I also get to sit down with my brothers, my husband and our parents to share a delicious meal while swapping stories, advice and some gentle ribbing.

One of our family traditions is to go around the table and reflect upon the prior year, give thanks to God for the many blessings we’ve received. Does your family have a similar tradition for Thanksgiving?

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, here are 5 reasons why we should be thankful for our dogs:
  1. Dogs give us unconditional love, regardless of whether we deserve it or not. When others fail us, our dogs stick around and are loyal to the end.

  2. Dogs encourage us to stay healthy. They teach us that a healthy diet and daily exercise is the right recipe to living a long and healthy life. (That’s also why we feed them the BARF Diet, right?)

  3. Dogs remind us to make time to play. This is very important, especially since Americans have a reputation of being workaholics.

  4. Dogs give us comfort when we’re sad. Whether you had a bad day at the office or just received some bad news, our dogs know when we could use some extra comforting in the form of a sympathetic paw on the knee or a lick on the face.

  5. Dogs remind us to forgive. Perhaps the most important reason of all, dogs forgive us of our faults. They forgive us when we leave them home alone, when we chastise them, or when we’re too busy to realize they need our attention.

This year, when you are sitting down for your Thanksgiving dinner giving thanks for all the good things that the past year has brought to you, don’t forget to include a little “thank you” for being blessed with a loyal canine companion.

Scientific developments and medical advancements continue to make leaps forward in this great day and age. This time the result has an aww factor that hits close to home for many of us. A study that takes cells from a dog's nose and injects them into the spine is helping 10-year-old dachshund, Jasper, walk again. This same kind of procedure may one day help paralyzed people to achieve a similar goal.

"There never yet has been a dog
Who learned to double cross,
Nor catered to you when you won
Then dropped you when you lost."
