Welcoming Our New Pet, Sandy

The Lewins and the 411-PAIN team have recently made a new addition to their already large family.  Sandy is now part of the gang!  This beloved golden-doodle dog gets its name from the movie Annie, in which an orphan girl escapes the orphanage to find her parents.  She runs into Sandy, who happens to be a friendly and companionable dog.  She acts like the dog belongs to her by calling him Sandy when dog catchers are around. 

Welcoming a new pet into your home is not an easy task.  It requires a lot of patience, time and dedication to make it feel like part of the family.  Animals usually get very scared when they arrive at new places.  There are many local pet rescue centers where you can adopt a pet that has been abandoned or neglected.  It doesn’t matter what type of breed you choose, they all deserve a new home and a loving family.
Researchers have found interesting things about how pets can improve your health and can help you have a better quality of life.  For example, spending time with your pet lowers the level of hormones linked to stress.  Petting your dog lowers your blood pressure, cholesterol and triglycerides.  You get to exercise more when you take your dog for a walk.  It’s proven that pet owners have fewer heart attacks than those who don’t own a pet.  Also, medical patients that own pets will recover faster than those who don’t.  Besides all that, people who were raised with pets at home have a stronger immune system; and also, kids with ADHD benefit greatly from canines.

Adopting a pet can be the most rewarding thing in the world.  You’ll definitely have the perfect companion and life-long friend.  Sandy is a lucky dog indeed, and so is the Lewin family and 411-PAIN for having such an adorable golden-doodle.  The entire family is committed to Sandy’s care.
Hellen Keller, blind and deaf writer said: “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt within the heart.”  I’m sure one of those things was her adorable canine companion.
