This is an amazing (video) Story: Eric & Peety: How a Rescued Dog Transformed a Life (5 mins.). Thanks to Kim for sharing it and making us aware of it. If you have a dog or cat, you'll understand. If you know a dog or cat, you'll get this. If your life is in a bad place, think of adopting a dog or cat and make them your life, because they'll make it better. We work for 2 dog rescues, and are dog dads so we know.
Eric and Peety (from Humane Society Silicon Valley)Eric weighed over 300 pounds, had type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and his doctor told him he would be dead in 5 years unless he changed. They suggested a dog. Eric went to the Humane Society Silicon Valley and said he wanted an obese, middle-aged dog, so they would have something in common. What happened next transformed their lives.
