When you get older you get very lonely. For my grandma it gave her something to do everyday (feed her, let her outside, cuddle with her). For the elderly it feels the void of emptiness so many of them feel.
Dogs are good for the elderly. Besides comfort some dogs can be trained as therapy dogs which these dogs will provide various assistance to the elderly such as help for opening the refridgerator, other small assistance for around the house.
Therapy dogs are good for stress reliever and making older people (or anyone) feel "good" happier.These therapy dogs are also trained to alert when there are signs of danger.

We all know animals can be trained and learn commands. But how do they think? Do they think at all? Can they think ahead? Contemplate? And in what language?
