    I love cats, but have decided, that I am going to get a little dog from now on, for my Son's benefit, because he ll be able to take it on walks, to the beach etc, he will love it!!!!!

  • Adrian_ScopeAdrian_Scope Administrator Posts: 6,988 Scope community team
    That's a great idea @Yvonne01! My daughters have both been after a dog for a while and I'm starting to come around to the idea. I think they'll really benefit from the companionship.
