For the love of pets31/07/2020
There is no doubt that owning a pet can help us in many different ways. One thing for sure is they are always there for us no matter what.
I own a West Highland White terrier and no matter what the weather is like, Millie needs to be taken out and exercised. Having MS, this makes sure I get a certain amount of exercise each day, no matter what else I am doing. She is also very good at keeping my stress levels down! (The main photo is of Millie, the day we collected her for the breeder.)
Which ever pet you have, they can bring us so much happiness and make us smile when we need that lift to our mood. In these strange and unprecedented times we are currently living in, having a pet can also make sure you are never lonely.
Take a look at the websites below about owning a pet, I particularly like the last one written by a dog about having an owner with MS!
