"Americans are overweight and underexercised, we're told. You and I have four-legged personal trainers who keep us exercising 7 days a week, 365 days a year. People with animals tend to live longer because our animals' needs demand that we keep moving" (English Cocker Spaniel breed column, AKC Gazette, July 2003, p. 52).
