Toby the Traveling Terrier received this cool shipment of treats from the folks at Milk-Bone!
Not only did he get Milk–Bone Brushing Chews, which he needed, loved and promptly buried in the yard, but he also got Milk–Bone Good Morning Treats and some pup toys and accessories. Toby loves the treats and looks forward to them after our daily walks. They are actually vitamins, so he only gets one each day.
According to “Milk–Bone Human-Canine Health Study” — a survey of 3,000 U.S. dog parents conducted by Milk–Bone brand dog treats (in partnership with Learndipity Data Insights) — humans and dogs positively impact the health of one another, from morning routines to physical fitness. I’ve heard other studies report that people with pets live longer, too. Personal experience with Toby has already got me walking more regularly with fewer missed days than before he joined the family last year.
Some reported benefits to human health from the study showed:
45% of dog parents report being “active, fit, and healthy” versus 29% of non-dog parents.
44% of dog parents have a “healthy structure and daily routine” – like for morning vitamins – compared to 33% of non-dog parents.
51% of dog parents say they get more exercise because of their dog — but 1 out of 3 pet parents wish their dog would get more physical activity.
55% of dog parents say their lives are “full of happiness and joy” compared to 39% of non-dog lovers.
54% of dog parents report “feeling loved” while only 35% of non-dog parents do.
57% of dog parents who also have children involve the kids in their doggy caring care routines, with most reporting that it teaches them good life habits and responsibility.

I love lemons, but tend to only turn to lemon water when I’m under the weather. This post has me thinking this would be a good habit to acquire! What do you say?
This is what happens to your body if you drink warm honey-lemon water in the morning
Adding lemon to water not only quenches thirst better than any other beverage, but it also nourishes our body with vitamins, minerals and trace elements which we absolutely need. Lemon with water can be considered the best natural energy booster. When we wake up in the morning, our bodily tissues are dehydrated and are in need of water to push out toxins and rejuvenate the cells. In other words, this homemade “lemonade” helps eliminate internal toxins, regulating proper kidney and digestive tract functions by forcing them to work as smoothly as possible.

Today was an uneventful day consisting of chicken noodle soup, a lot of sleeping, my favorite onesie, and Gossip Girl. You guessed it, I was sick today, which means that I didn’t go to school today. (Turning your computer, phone, or head may required to view the following images.)
One fact about me is I hate missing school. I know what you’re thinking, what a nerd! But you know what, I hate coming to school not knowing what I missed. Anyway, I pretty much slept the whole day and when I wasn’t sleeping, I was sucking on lozenges and watching Gossip Girl. The whole day I had a vicious cough which was unfortunate. Well, goodnight everyone! ☺️
