If "cute" is good for you..then "stinkin' cute" must be the best-eveah......

When I can across these 3, I immediately thought of me & my sisters..

Do ya see it??


Yeah..huh..?
And here's some info I found at:
http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/unleashed/2008/10/cute-is-good-fo.html

"You may scoff at photos or videos of terribly cute animals... but it turns out that sort of viewing is good for you. The Seattle Post-Intelligence has the details:


 Take 10 minutes of Animal Planet and call us in the morning. Or dose up on those videos of hilariously clumsy cats or dogs skidding on ice. Not mean ones, just funny or beautiful ones. Watching films of animal life may help you beat stress, which makes you feel great while it drops your risk of scores of health problems.






When people watched 10 minutes of animal footage, their heart rate and blood pressure dipped not only while they were under stress, but it stayed lower even afterward. It didn't matter whether the animal was scaly, feathered or furry.



Even better, the sound doesn't have to be on to reap the calming benefits, so you can sneak a peek at the latest panda/polar bear/Labrador retriever clips before your next tension-filled meeting, and your office mates will never know."

Huh..
 
So, hug your stress-relieving-blood-pressure-dropping-scaly-feathered-furry friend and have a great tomorrow...

For sure the doctor should say "Go get a dog and take her for a walk" instead of pills. I don't think I will ever be without a dog...I try to model my life after them.

The dog in the giraffe suit may just be the funniest doggie photo I've ever seen. Such an expression on his face....

You know how married couples sometimes start to look similar? I propose that the same goes for us and our pets. I used to have a poodle. Now I have a shih tzu. Go figure... Loved the pics.

Omigosh! I should've been here yesterday. Okay, I do see the resemblance, but you confused me by mixing up the order. You are the little dog on the right; the sister on the right is the dog in the middle; the sister in the middle is the dog on the left. Correct or am I taking this way too seriously? Ha! Never wonder why I have a stress problem...

Love this post..it definitely made me smile! My favourite friends are the furry kind...can't imagine life without them. I do see a resemblance between the doggies and the picture of you with your sisters..all of you cute, cuddly and close-knit..perfect...:)
