Depression & Pet Therapy: How Different Animals have Helped with their Love

Merely Me Health Guide
  • The Midweek MuseA little inspiration to get you over the hump!

                    The theme today is our PETS!














    If you suffer from depression I am telling you that your mental health can improve with the addition of a furry four footed friend. 


    The creatures you see above are my own.  Sometimes when I am very down I think that the only ones who love me are the cat and dog.  Okay...not quite sure about the cat yet.  Smile


    Anyways...I think it would be fun to talk about our pets here.  Tell us all about your dog or cat or fish or iguana or whatever else you have.  And if you have photos to share we would love to see them.  Create a sharepost and then give a link in a comment here so we don't miss seeing them.

    Add This Infographic to Your Website or Blog With This Code:


    *Special note about posting images!  I finally figured this out today how to do this without aggravation.  When you create a sharepost there is a thingy at the end which says "HTML" which is for code.  Join photobucket or Flickr or any other image hosting site...put your photos there and then get the code and when you hit the HTML button...copy the URL given on the photosharing site and voila!  You can post images.  I am hopeful that soon it will be easier to post images but for the time being this works!*



    Also please feel free to caption my two pictures above! 



    In the meantime I offer you some of my favorite cat and dog quotes:
