to relieve stress, get a dog

I took this test yesterday called the RealAge. Apparently I’m 3.8 years older in my RealAge than my actual age. It makes sense- there have been several stressful things that have happened in the last 12 months, out of my control mostly… and you know what their recommendations were? To get a dog. Here’s the text:

OWN A DOG IF POSSIBLE.
For many people, dogs help reduce stress. Dogs also help increase your daily level of
physical activity because of their need for walking and playing. If possible, own and care
for a dog for optimal Age Reduction.

Who would have thunk it? We’ve been wanting a dog for sometime now, but hubby doesn’t feel that its appropriate with where we live. I know he’s right.
