Does this happen for you too, I seem to forget what I was worrying about or my worrying is less when petting and hanging out with my Labs
For sure! They are a great pacifier
Oh Yes. Nellie gives me such joy.
Yes! ;D ;D

Gee! i am petting Hershey Kisses and have no problems. I really can't answer your question now.
Hershey Kisses, In charge of getting Ed out to the dog park so that he gets some exercise.
yep, i think i recall seeing a study that there is actually a chemical release that occurs for both owner and pet during petting that causes this...
Oh absolutely! When I'm hanging out with Breezy and just snuggling up on the couch with her, all is right with the world. When I have those snuggly moments with her, there's no place else I'd rather be. And if I'm having a bad day, all I have to do is look at her sweet face and my troubles don't seem so bad after all. She makes everything better! ;D
My only problems are when Oakley is actually causing the worries!!
Seeing our pups enjoy their rub is the most satisfying part of the friendship.
