WEDNESDAY, April 3, 2019 (HealthDay News) — Richard McIntosh hadn’t had any pets since his childhood farm dogs, but then he started a relationship with a competitive dog trainer and found his life filled with Golden Retrievers.
Now McIntosh, 59, of Cornelius, Ore., can’t imagine growing old without a dog or two by his side.
“There was a little something missing from my life,” McIntosh said. “These dogs give me activity, they give me joy, companionship. When I’m not feeling good, they’re there for me. When I am feeling great, we’re playing and running. I get a lot out of it.”
