We'll find out about a talk at the university that will explain why we need pets in our lives.

Ask any pet owner and they'll likely say they get a lot of benefits from having a pet. But ask Alan Beck, and he'll say pets are actually good for your health. Alan Beck is a professor of animal ecology at Purdue University. He's also co-author of the book "Between Pets and People, The Importance of Animal Companionship". He's in Windsor today to give a talk about the "Unique Bond between Companian Animals and People" at the University of Windsor.
