Our love will see us through!

Some highlights:

– The long-term survival rates of heart attack victims who had a pet have been shown to be significantly longer than for those who did not.

– Having a pet may decrease heart attack mortality rates by 3 percent, which translates into 30,000 lives saved annually.

– Pet owners have lower triglyceride and cholesterol levels than non-owners.

Thank you little fur-dudes. For the record, it goes both ways, they benefit from us, too. I’m sure they’d thank us if they could.

Finney if he could talk: Thank you for helping me live longer. For this, I will not bite you today.

I made some progress writing yesterday, so I’m going to get back in there again today to see if I can really get a grip on this chapter in order to get to the fun part — tinkering. <--- I will try not to write sentences as bad as that one.
