Golden Retriever kisses good for Toddlers

Did anyone have any doubt?  Really?  Science has proven that children with pet dogs suffer fewer coughs and ear infections and required fewer antibiotics.  One example is Lily Williams who owns two Golden Retrievers.  Little does she know, but these dogs are helping her fight infections.  New research published in the American Academy of Pediatrics this week revealed these findings.

According to the article in TheWest.com.au  children living in houses where dogs spent part of the day inside had the lowest risk of infectious symptoms and respiratory tract infections.  Lily’s parents report she is a healthy baby, with only one recent earache.
