You may have heard that pets have been scientifically proven to increase your chances of living to a ripe old age. Well the rumor is true, but how exactly is it possible you may be wondering.
The first reason why owning a shih-tzu could make you live longer, is that they offer you unconditional love without you ever having to ask for it. In fact, this unconditional love is available to you at any given moment, twenty-four hours a day. Next time you are with your shih-tzu, take notice of its expressions and you will see that it is full of nothing but love for you.
The second reason is that you can be yourself around your shih-tzus. You do not need to put up facades or pretend to be someone that you are not. No matter what you do, you will always have the approval of your shih-tzus. Having the freedom to be yourself eliminates the stress that you may be subjecting yourself on a daily basis while out in the real world.
The third reason is that shih-tzus offer companionship. You can come home from work to an empty house and that is exactly how it will feel empty. But with a shih-tzu there to greet you, you have a friend by your side as you kick off your shoes and settle in for a quiet night together.
The fourth reason is that they stimulate you physically, especially dogs. You know that if you dont take them for a walk, then chances are they go without. So you get out in the fresh air, breath deeply and move those joints and muscles as you enjoy the scenery together. There is nothing like a brisk thirty minute walk to wake up your body.
And lastly they also give you the opportunity to share your love and affection. A shih-tzu demands this kind of attention and this helps you to connect with your own emotions on many levels. don't it just feel wonderful to show a shih-tzu how much you love them, and see the heartfelt appreciation in their eyes?
If you don't own a shih-tzu yet and you are keen to live as long as you can, you might want consider getting one real soon.
