I have a hobby that gives to others and because it is about giving and service to others it peps up my mood. I take my dog Milo to nursing homes where the elderly pet him and since I'm doing a good thing for someone else I feel good., see.
He is 75 USA pounds and he was the " runt " of his litter because both his parents were giant dogs of 200 pounds. They were Pyrenees dog St. Bernard and a smidge of white Labrador retriever.
Milo was bottle fed even so he is especially sweet in his attachment to humans
He was from a no kill rescue shelter and when I got him he was trust trained and obedience trained already at 1. 1/2 years old.
we are his third family. n dec 2016 he was 2 years old. So anyway this is my hobby that is of service and giving to others.
Go find your own service hobby and you'll feel better about your self image. And self esteem . OK?
That is a wonderful thing you do, this is why I enjoy giving my time to this site free of charge because if I can make just one person feel good about themselves and their disability that's a good day.
