What a wonderful story! It sounds like you have a wonderful life with your human children and your furchildren and I hope you continue to be so happy. Animals are amazing therapists and they can work miracles for people who are depressed or otherwise unhappy.

Chester and I are very happy you are a member of the forum and we look forward to hearing lots more from you.

How about some pictures of you and all your kids?! ;-)

That's a very sweet story. So glad they've changed your life so much. I always say that when I got Jake I thought I was just getting a pet....jeez, I've gotten a whole new lifestyle...and I love it!! The dogs are the main focus in my life and I wouldn't have it any other way. They bring me so much joy.

That is so wonderful Christine!! I have a couple of friends who also have depression, and they also have pets. It helps!! My dogs have gotten me thru some rough times too, mainly the loss of my parents, dogs just bring so much joy to your life!

Glad to hear that things are improving for you. Depression can be such a debilitating illness. Our cavalier babies are just so worth it aren't they! :D

I must admit, I also sufer form depression. for about 7 years now. But I have problems with that and annie. I was always even more sad, because she loves all people and I was scared, that she doesnt love me and that sometimes made it even worse. :sl*p: I must really be a horrible person.

I am so happy for you, Christine! And you also have beautiful children! :D
