Hi my name is jen i am 51 have a daughter and grandson. I have myalgic Encephalopathy, fibromyalgia, underactive thyroid, social anxiety. More importantly i have a foster dog. She is a 7 year old staffie cross called dustie. I think she will be with me for a long time. She is adorable, funny, cheeky and a pain in the bum. Have been retraining her and she is doing well.

Hello, and welcome. Some studies have shown that caring for a pet can have numerous healing and restorative benefits. :)
If an opportunity comes to you in life, say yes first, even if you don't know how to do it.
