Dr. Oz shares why his yel­low Lab is a healthy ad­di­tion to his happy fam­ily.

Wish­ing a happy Na­tional Dog Day to my #1 pup, Khaleesi!” Dr. Oz gushed of his fam­ily’s pre­cious yel­low Labrador re­triever (named af­ter the Game of Thrones char­ac­ter) when the pair posed to­gether to cel­e­brate on Aug. 26. (He even ad­mit­ted the cu­tie, whom he calls “my beau­ti­ful one,” would be re­warded with ex­tra treats in honor of the hol­i­day.) It should come as no sur­prise why the TV doc was so ea­ger to sing the praises of his four­legged friend. He’s been a vo­cal ad­vo­cate for the ben­e­fits of spend­ing qual­ity time with an­i­mals as a form of emo­tional ther­apy for years. “Did you know that own­ing a pet can de­crease de­pres­sion, stress and anx­i­ety?” the doctor shares. “Happy and healthy starts at home — go pet a dog!”
