Nothing Comes Between a Kid and His/Her Dog (15 pics)

A friend recently sent me an article about a study which concluded that dog owners get the same surge of emotions when looking at their pooch as mothers do with their infants.

In a trial they found the owners experienced a burst in the hormone called oxytocin when playing with their pets. Known as the 'cuddle chemical' or 'love drug', it has been found to dampen stress, combat depression, and breed trust in humans.

Looking at these photos, I concur.
