  How pets save us billions every year in health care costs (no wonder tails are wagging)
Fox News: Opinion

Ariana Huffington

"(Furry) Friends with (Different) Benefits owners have higher self esteem, fewer feelings of loneliness, and are more physically fit and socially outgoing than people without pets."

"Animals help us be better humans. Quite often, they show us how to be our best selves. Always in the moment, sticking their noses into everything (literally), they see a world that we take for granted, one we're usually just hurriedly passing through on our way to lives we never quite reach."

"Pets are the unrivaled masters of giving back. The pleasure they take in giving themselves to us is perhaps their greatest lesson. Like our animals, we are wired to connect, to reach out, to love. But unlike them, with us other things get in the way - jealousy, insecurity, irritation, anger. Pets help us constantly come back to what makes us human. They're a furry version of our best selves."
