This guideline, of course, is optional but highly recommended. If you don’t already have one and are (physically, financially, and pyschologically) able to, get yourself a dog. Why? Dogs force you to get out and about. It’s that simple. In addition, they encourage you to be less self-centered. Plus, they’re fantastic listeners and feet warmers. Not only do they provide people with quality company, dogs encourage people to live healthy lives. Studies show that dog-owners tend to live longer than those who don’t have pets. Not a bad deal, right?
If it weren’t for Morty (my 5-year-old Shih-Tzu), I would have never met my Mr. Right. Because of Morty, I met my friend, Kim (who was also walking her dogs at the time). She and her husband then set me and Mr. Right up and the rest is history :).
Although a diamond is nice, I think a dog is a girl’s true best friend.
