and a living wage is paid to all. an america where after a lifetime of labor, there is time for rest and grandchildren. a nation that defends our people and our values, but no longer carries so much of that burden alone. i know we can create that america if we listen to our conscience and our hearts and not to the pundits and the naysayers. i'm bernie sanders. i approve this message, and i ask for you to caucus for me. thank you.

let their pets share their bed with them... but should they? a recent study by the mayo clinic is challenging the idea that animals in the bedroom can mess with your sleep. don champion has the story. patricia (patree-shia) sullivan had canine company in bed as soon as she brought home her first puppy. ( patricia sullivan/dog owner) he started to cry, and whimper and i felt sorry for him and i put him on my bed and he curled up in a ball and he was asleep and he's been there ever since. sleep experts have long thought that pets in the bedroom are disruptive to a person's sleep but a recent mayo clinic survey found 41 percent of sleep patients who share their beds with their animals find it beneficial. (dr. lois krahn/sleep specialist at the mayo clinic in arizona) if having a pet nearby helps them feel relaxed and gives them a sense of security, which permits
difficulty, then i think that is something that does deserve attention. 20 percent of respondents however, admitted their pets interrupted their sleep. study author doctor lois krahn (krahhn) says there are many things pet owners need to consider. ( dr. lois krahn/sleep specialist at the mayo clinic in arizona) they need to know how well they sleep as a person and how well the pet sleeps, they need to take into account the size of the pet. other considerations: the size of the bed, the number of pets and the pets must be clean and free of fleas. (sullivan) if their feet were really wet, i'd wipe them off sullivan says her dogs don't just relax her, they go a step further. ( if i stay up too late the dogs remind me to go to bed. they actually walk into my bedroom, look at me like c'mon let's go. laughs. ps: they do. ) and even though their barking sometimes wakes her up, she says she wouldn't have it any other way. don champion, cbs news, springfield, new jersey.
