National Pet Day! 4-11-24

Episode 7396,   Apr 11, 03:55 PM

Today is National Pet Day. Why not adopt a fur-baby from the local shelters? It's good for them and good for your health.  A rescue dog can heal your soul, keep you moving and help you make new friends at local dog parks, such as A.L. Anderson Park, Boca Ciega Millenium Park, John Chesnut Sr. Park, Eagle Lake Park, Sand Key Park, Helen Howarth Dog Park, Madeira Beach Dog Park, Gulfport Dog Park, Kenwood Dog Park, Crescent Lake Dog Park, Indian Rocks Beach Dog Park, Walsingham Park and others. Fort De Soto has the only county dog park where dogs are allowed on the beach in a designated area. There are also two fenced-in areas with water stations near the beach for large and small dogs. The beach entrance is at the far southwest corner of dog park. Walking (and aerobic exercise) can boost new brain cell growth and creativity. When you walk, you increase the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the brain that can enhance creativity. Just getting up from your desk and taking a short walk helps trigger ideas, according to a Stanford University study that discovered creative output increased 60 percent when participants were walking, even on a treadmill facing a blank wall.
