why do we love our pets so much

You donвt have to tell dog lovers the feeling is both mutual (and very real), but a new study published in the journal Science reveals the fascinating reason why we feel so close to our furry companions: When humans and dogs look into each otherвs eyes, both get a boost of the, which is the same hormone behind the special bond between.
Many years later, after Phil and I got married, we got a beautiful golden retriever that we named Huey.


Then came Louie, and then came Dewey.


Though many people couldn't tell them apart, each one had a completely unique personality. Hughie was the oldest, and he followed Phil everywhere. (I think he believed he was PhilБs bodyguard). Louie went on the road with me for a national tour of "Six Degrees of Separation" and quickly became Бthe company dog.


Б Everyone in the cast and on the crew missed their pets, so they were thrilled I had him with me and they would all take turns walking him.


And when we moved from city to city, instead of having to crate Louie, the guys would take him on the prop truck. It was so funny to see him sitting in the front seat next to the driver. And Dewey was just like a loyal kid brother to the other two.


He outlived both of them, and you could see how sad he was. I think he died early because he missed them so much. What a great threesome they were Бbeautiful, loving and very funny.
