It's certainly a silly sight, but this quick spin around the driveway makes it clear that Daisy the dog and Oliver the toddler are close friends. And while they're just have fun right now, there are actually a number of benefits to growing up with a canine best bud.
The constant companionship that dogs provide isn't just a comfort to adults. Pups can help children deal with a myriad of confusing emotions, as well as lessen any anxiety. It's also good for their physical health. Kids with dogs tend to get more exercise than those without, which is never a bad thing. Studies have shown that babies raised with pets tend to get sick less often in the first year of life, too.
