Puppies are tough for some people to deal with while house training, but they do tend to make people smile – especially elders. Families with children and dogs know that a young life, be it a puppy or a small child, just improve the overall well-being of senior citizens. They are simply a constant reminder of how much fun life was in the past and the young just help others feel younger. Besides that, who can resist puppy or baby kisses? They are simply the best!
While it is hard to watch family members age, it is easy to keep their spirit alive by taking your young ones to visit often. The positive nature of youngsters is evident in the demeanor of older people. They just seem to forget their troubles; represented by the smiles that cross their faces.
Just because a dog is not trained as a therapy dog does not mean that they will not do utter good for an aging individual. And young children just bring out the best in everyone with their happiness and good cheer.
So if you have a puppy or youngster that you can take to visit your elderly relatives, do so. Remember that With Age Comes Respect and any form of respect is what an older individual is owed!
