If you aren’t best friends with a dog you may want to fix that, especially if you are single. A study done at Uppsala University in Sweden using 7 of the country’s databases say owning a dog is good for your heart. The study of 3.4 million Swedes ages 40 – 80 over a 12 year period from 2001 found that single folks had 11% less incidents of heart disease and were 33% less likely to die (during the study) than those without canine companionship. Maybe that buddy of yours is getting you off the couch more? Or maybe you are less stressed just knowing he is there to protect you. Good Dog!!! From Uppsala Universitet website
