Health benefits of having a dog in the house

Do you have a dog/dogs at home? Do we need to treat them as one of our family members too? Just like human beings, a dog or any pet are given to us in order for them to be taken care off in this wonderful world, they need to be treated also as a part of a family, not just as a pet that serves as a happy companion in the house. They are a blessing from above, and we have to love and take good care of all those pets that are given by our creator, they all have something to impart in our life.
