I can't believe how much my new puppy has helped me feel mentally better. I carry him around and hold him and hug him and feel so much better. I was never a pet person and this is my first dog. I remember thinking how gross it was when I saw people hugging and kissing their pets and now I can't stop hugging and kissing Mugsy. The only thing that scares me is I keep thinking, what if something happens to him. Is he eating enough, is he okay? I guess it's just like having a baby. I thoroughly recommend a puppy baby to anyone that needs a boost. I'll try to post a picture soon.
