I knew it all along...

Wednesday, December 02, 2009

My Mom found this news thingy on one of her most favoritest interwebs sites Mental Floss (I think she reads it to make her smart...BOL! Not working too well now is it?!?!?!). Anyhowl, researchers have found that us doggies may actually prevent asthma in people pups!!!! How great is that!!!!

“Several longitudinal studies have shown that exposure to certain domestic animals, for example, indoor dogs, during a person’s early life (even possibly before he or she is born) is associated with strong protection against asthma and asthma-related conditions later in life,” Serrine Lau, a member of the research team said.
I always knew we were getting a bad rap on that one!!!

And OMD - your mom TIES YOU UP when you get baths?!?! How in the world are you supposed to escape and run around the house sopping wet when you're RESTRAINED?!?! Totally unfair, dude....

Oh, and yes you can use our picture, but my girl says it's really bad quality because she used her cell phone and it's a REALLY old phone.... Have at it though, if you want it!
