I agree! Piper is my first dog too & I could not have made it through that first year without the great advice on this forum.

I feel my two are like my family I just love them to pieces I was 53 when I got Maddie and Zoey and it had been a very long time for me without a pet.

Even though you did not have one before, it makes having Leyla that much sweeter, finally its your time to do something for you. Nothing like a dog of your own no matter how old they or you are!

She HAS changed my life. i'm not as much of a work-a-holic and my staff tells me I've gotten WAAAAAAAAAY calmer lol! I never really understood the pet fascination, and now I can't understand why EVERYNE doesn't have one. I'm so happy. And I feel like I've become part of a new kind of community where EVERYONE is nice and actually stops to chat just because our dogs are so cute lol! Very grateful.

I've had animals all my life, but I find it delightful that you are discovering the joys of pet ownership. Better late than never, by far!!! Glad that you've joined us!
