5 Ways Pets Help Us Thrive, with Arianna Huffington

By Wednesday, October 22, 2014

It’s not everyday I get to meet a media mogul—let alone one who loves animals and values their contributions to our lives.

So, I was over the moon excited when I was granted an interview with Huffington Post founder, and member of Forbes’ “Most Powerful Women” list, Arianna Huffington about her new book, Thrive, The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder.

You see, I’m always searching for unique and interesting perspectives to share with you about how animals manage to effortlessly better our lives.

In her New York Times best-selling book, Ms. Huffington shares the moment she realized that our current definition of success is inadequate. What’s missing, she explains, is “The Third Metric” – a measure of success that goes beyond the two metrics of money and power. The Third Metric consists of “four pillars,” including well-being, wisdom, wonder and giving.

A Picture Says a Thousand Woofs, A Celebration of Adopted Dogs

I’ll never forget Chilly’s adoption day. We went to the animal shelter looking for a cat, and we came home with an adorable, eight-week-old Labrador-something mix. We were planning to adopt a dog, AFTER a cat, but as life would have it, it happened the opposite way.

The American Humane Association celebrates each October as “Adopt-a-Dog” month. With millions of wonderful pups patiently waiting in shelters, this event raises much-needed awareness and helps encourage adoptions. So if you’ve been thinking about bringing home a new canine companion, there’s never been a better time.

In celebration of “Adopt-a-Dog” month, I’m sharing some heartwarming pictures of the dogs you’ve adopted and come to love. These are some of the hundreds of photos shared by my awesome followers, in celebration of their adopted dogs.
