I am a new member, so I'm just saying hello to all the animal addicts like me . This seems like a very useful website and forum, and I melt when I look at the pet pictures! I found this site, sadly, right after my dog died. She was almost 8 years old and got cancer. A week has past and I can't find comfort, but pictures of animals (and live animals even moreso) can cheer me up. I found these forums when I was researching dog breeds, because our last dog was a pyrenean, and now we need a smaller breed. Anyway, I'm glad to meet you all!
