Life changed for Topher Brophy when he adopted his four-legged, look-alike ‘love battery’ – aka Rosenberg. One thing led to another, and today Brophy and Rosenberg have almost a quarter of a million followers on Instagram.
The title of Topher’s new book tells you exactly what we talk about today, DOG DAD: How Animals Bring Out the Best in Us and Can Help Save the World.
Studies show that living with animals can help improve our overall health. Pets provide emotional support proven to lower blood pressure, lift depression, reduce anxiety, increase feelings of joy and happiness – and they help us get out of our head and into nature.
