It’s been a good 6 to 8 weeks of social distancing and being ordered to stay at home as much as possible. You know who’s not complaining about that so far, your dog, cat, or other family pet. They’re getting extra love, walks, and probably an increase of treats throughout the day. Talk about a perfect life.

We've all seen a commercial, TV show, or Hallmark movie where an adorable puppy or kitten crawl out of a box with a cute little ribbon tied around its neck.

The term "It's a Dog's Life" isn't what it used to be when the first reference of the expression was recorded in the 16th century. Most dogs live a life in the lap of luxury compared to their counterparts centuries ago. Back in those times, dogs did not run on manicured lawns and carpeted floors.
