Can A Puppy Help You Stay Sober?

We just got a new puppy a few weeks ago — an adorable mini-golden doodle. Her name is Lucy.

I have to tell ya that having a cute little puppy in the house does wonders for my sobriety.

Puppies and dogs live in the moment. They show unconditional love. They take you away from the worries and stresses of the real world.

There are great stories out there dogs helping folks recover from addiction.

I was never an animal lover when I was younger. I’m not sure why. But I’m becoming one now with Lucy. And that’s a good thing.

    I couldn’t find any way to contact you on this page but I need your help. Myself and a small group of investors in Palm Springs ca have been trying to developer an extremely valuable tool for recovery world wide. Long story short , we have been screwed over by a developer for the project and need a lawyer to spearhead our fight for our product. We can pay but funds are limited….I am sure if you give me a chance to explain you will find our project worthy of your time. Please call me at your earliest convenience …..Will 760-668-6779

    I adopted a puppy when I first got sober. The sticker on my car ‘Who rescued Who?’ has especially special meaning to me. She’s taught me patience and tolerance, gets me off my ass and out of the house, and gave me someone safe to love and share my life with.
