A dog pet is not only a best friend but can also be a good "medicine" sometimes. It is well known that a dog can cheer up his owner and even though dogs can't talk, their look is worth one thousand words.
Recent studies have shown that people who live in the company of a dog have a much better circulation of blood and the glicemia and cholesterol levels are better than of those who don't have pets.
If you have a dog even the minimum of daily exercises and fresh air will be a great time to spend with your friend and will be great for your health.
Having a dog can also be a fun way of improving your social life and making new acquaintances.

I began writing on this blog when I first brought home my cute French Bulldog, Chayenne, who is a wonderful, irreplaceable member of our family.
Chayenne is today 2,3 years old and it is time for her to have her first babies.
As I know that French Bulldogs are very sensitive, ticklish dogs, I tried to find out everything about the French Bulldog breading and I found out many new interesting things.
For example, many French Bulldog stud dogs are incapable of naturally breeding, requiring breeders to undertake artificial insemination of the female dogs. Usually French Bulldogs require Caesarean section to give birth.
So it will not be easy but I think it will be worth it seeing the cute little puppies runing around and playing with Chayenne and my son.
