Did you know that pet visits often spark good memories of a person's own pets? Dogs often can reach people and children who have withdrawn from the world. It's been suggested by science that petting a dog can lower blood pressure, reduce anxiety and stress, and promote healing.

Vaccination and Other Paperwork Keeper
Having a dog means having more paperwork than you probably know what to do with. In my case, it meant trying to cram all of it in one of those paper envelopes that has a flap where you record vaccination and other medical history. With all the papers and brochures I had, I was tearing mine at the seams. So I got this great idea of using one of those filing folders for checks. I then was able to label each of the pockets for things like "vaccinations", "training", "meds" and "vet receipts". I even got a different color for each of my pets- Cayman got aqua, Zoey got pink, and our cat got purple. Now when I take any of my pets to the vet or something, all their paperwork is not only together, but also organized. I got these file folders at Walmart for about $5 a piece. Its cool because it even has two business card sized pockets of the back where I put their vet's business card. I suggest everyone with a pet- dog or cat- try this out!
