The animal company has shown the world that could be very useful in cases as elderly people which is feeling alone, patients with serious physical and mental probelms etc. Specially when we talk about dogs, they are called "the best friend of the man" in my country. So then, I believe that when we are talking about stay clean and sober, your pet could help keeping you busy, and feeling loved, that's for certain a good support for the bad moments. My dog is like a child for me, and he has helped me a lot when I feel bad. What do you think? Any personal experiences?
