According to US Magazine, "Jackass" star Steve-O is crediting the success of his four years of sobriety to his two rescue dogs, Walter and Bernie.



In 2008, when Steve-O decided to become sober, he adopted Walter, a black Chihuahua-Daschund mix. The following year, he welcomed Bernie, a white mixed breed into his family, as well. Although it wasn't too long ago, he can't imagine what his life was like before he became a proud pup papa.

"You know, the way I feel about it, and it might sound a little weird as far as comparisons go, but getting a dog reminds me of getting a cell phone because there's that overwhelming feeling when I first got a cell phone of 'How did I ever live without this and what would I ever do if I lost it?' It's very much the same way with my dogs. I just think back to before I had my dogs and my life must have been just so empty."

Steve-O not only cut alcohol and drugs from his life when he adopted his dogs, he also decided to omit meat from his diet, too. Shortly after, he went "full-on vegan," citing it as one of the most most beneficial decision of his life.

Thanks to Walter and Bernie, Steve-O may be evidence to the fact that owning a dog can extend the length of your life. "I can't believe how much those little sons of b****** have enriched my life," he said.
