Dogs can bring a lot of joy and happiness to a child's life it would be a shame to dismiss the idea of owning one out of hand. It is well documented that dogs can be very beneficial to the physical and mental health of the elderly and infirm. The same applies to children. To see a child run and play with his dog, giggling and calling its name as the dog bounds along, its tail wagging furiously, it’s a sight to warm the heart.
A dog will never tease a child. Will never push them over and pinch their bike. Will never make fun of the way they look or the color of their skin. They will just be happy to tag along and hear their names occasionally. And when your child is sick, the dog won’t care. It will still be happy to sit by the baby bed and keep him company until they can go out and play again.
