How Our Dog Helps Our Mental Health

Teddy has been a part of our lives for almost four months and it seems like he’s been with us forever. As much as both Ian and I adore him and couldn’t imagine life without him, he’s done so much for both of us that it’s incomprehensible. I know, I know, if you’re not an…
