Flight Attendant Makes It Her Mission to Reunite Service Dogs with the Soldiers Who Love Them

  Flight Attendant Makes It Her Mission to Reunite Service Dogs with the Soldiers Who Love Them For one California-based flight attendant of more than 40 years, air time isn’t limited to quickie work trips around the globe—it’s a way for her to give back to soldiers who are separated from their service dogs. Molli Oliver works for United Airlines and has made it her mission to reunite canines with the veterans they served with after they’ve returned home. According to an NBC Nightly News segment, delivering these dogs to their soldier companions can cost thousands of dollars, and sadly, they often wind up in military kennels separated from the handlers they know and love, sometimes hundreds or thousands of miles away.

7 Little Ways to Boost Your Dog's Mental Health

  7 Little Ways to Boost Your Dog's Mental Health Keep your dog mentally stimulated with these simple tips & tricks.As far as best friends go, dogs are a pretty selfless bunch.

Two major studies showed that mankind has more empathy for pooches in dire circumstances than suffering people , according to a report in the Times “Respondents were significantly less distressed when adult humans were victimized, in comparison with human babies, puppies and adult dogs

Two major studies showed that mankind has more empathy for pooches in dire circumstances than suffering people , according to a report in the Times of London. A UK medical research charity staged two phony donation campaigns – one with a dog and the other featuring a man. Of course, the pooch

In a report published in journal Society & Animals, participants were given fake newspaper clippings of police reports, about a victim being attacked with a baseball bat and “left unconscious with one broken leg and multiple lacerations”.

While the story remained the same, the victim in the report was changed to either a one-year-old child, a 30-year-old adult, a puppy or a six-year-old dog.

The study - curiously titled Are People More Disturbed by Dog or Human Suffering? - found that people were more upset about a baby, a puppy and a dog being attacked than an adult human.

When asked about how they felt to measure their levels of empathy for each victim, the 30-year-old human elicited the least empathetic response.

  This Beach Bar for Dogs Has Chicken Beer and Doggie Paddle Races Monty’s Dog Beach Bar is just one more reason to put Croatia on your travel bucket list.Monty’s opened a year ago in the coastal town of Crikvenica and has been drawing in four-legged patrons and their owners ever since. While lounging on a sun bed with views of the Adriatic Sea, dogs lap up special "beer" brewed from chicken and vegetables. If they’re in need of something more substantial, the menu also includes ice cream made from bananas, peanut butter, yogurt, and soy milk. Senior dogs even have the option to drink medicinal teas that are supposed to boost fur growth.

Do you love dogs ? Like really love them? When you’re watching a movie, for example, is According to them, humans ’ inherent softness for dogs has to do with a hardwired protective instinct that “The fact that human crime victims receive less empathy than do child, puppy, and full-grown dog victims

“It may be that many people appraise dogs as vulnerable, regardless of their age, when compared to adult humans . Psychotherapist Justin Lioi agrees. “ We are more able to empathize with someone whom we deem to have little blame for their circumstances,” Lioi told I Love My Dog .

While it's mildly concerning, it may help to explain why seeings dogs die in movies and TV shows is just so darn distressing.

"Respondents were significantly less distressed when adult humans were victimised, in comparison with human babies, puppies and adult dogs," the researchers concluded.

"Only relative to the infant victim did the adult dog receive lower scores of empathy."

The reason? "Subjects did not view their dogs as animals, but rather as 'fur babies', or family members alongside human children."

And it seems our dogs may love us back just as much. Last month, a study published in the journal Scientific Reports determined that dogs make more facial movements when a human is paying them attention.

While it was previously thought that a dog made facial expressions "unconsciously" the study - which recorded the facial movements of 24 dogs when a human was facing an animal and facing away - found that dogs change their faces to seek attention from their human pals.

Don’t let your dog sleep with you in bed: study

  Don’t let your dog sleep with you in bed: study Ruff news: Man’s best friend may keep you from fetching sleep. That’s the takeaway of a small but provocative study titled “The Effect of Dogs on Human Sleep in the Home Sleep Environment” in the September issue of Mayo Clinic Proceedings. Investigators studied 40 healthy adults with pooches but no sleep disorders over five months. Subjects and their dogs wore activity trackers to track their sleeping habits for seven nights. Researchers found that “humans with a single dog in their bedroom maintained good sleep efficiency; however, the dog’s position on/off the bed made a difference.” Bottom line: Regardless of breed or size, dogs in the bedroom was fine. Canines actually in the bed, not so much. “Human sleep efficiency was lower,” researchers noted, “if the dog was on the bed as opposed to simply in the room.

Science Says People Love Pooches More Than Other Humans , and Duh. We can’t say we ’re terribly surprised: Not only is an animal or baby far more helpless against an attacker than a grown adult might be, but our pets are indeed like family members, (a fact Ryan Gosling can surely attest to).

"Dogs produced significantly more facial movements when the human was attentive than when she was not," the study read.

The dogs "raised their eyebrows" and "made their eyes bigger" to get more attention from their human counterparts.

Thankfully, our puppy friends have been repaying our love for them with health benefits: it turns out that having your four-legged friend in the room with you while you sleep means you'll get a better quality of rest.

Dogs have even been known to take on elements of their owner's personalities, and are able to detect and react to our emotions, like stress.

It seems the human-dog love feeling is mutual. Now, tell us again how cats are better than dogs?
