Gregory Castle, Best Friends CEO, recently shared his observations about animals’ ability to overcome illness, and the stoic lessons they offer us by their example in this article.
An attitude of carrying on, and not focusing on personal misfortune, helps animals get healthy again. According to Castle, “It is not a panacea, but it somehow provides a strength that animals use (and humans can, too) to return to good health.”
I like this article because it provides me with a dose of tough love from some of our Best Friends. It’s a nice message to all, and the unconditional love that goes with it. Next time you’re feeling a little blue or under the weather, it might be a good idea to trust your animal instincts. Find out more about Best Friends here.
