    It's difficult reading about all the helping dogs. I lost my Shay a couple of years ago. It's was a long slow death for her but at least we were home when she went. She was with me thru thick and thin. I knew I'd found Mr. Right when he got down on his knees to play with her. I'd never before dated anyone who'd accepted her. She was a big black/tan Doberman and I can honestly say I am alive today because of her. She always pulled me thru the worst times. When I hurt she always knew where to lay for physical support or just plain emotional comfort. Shay was my lap-dog but she started attending my husbands Bible study classes. She would place her head between our joined hands and pray with us. God, how I miss her.

    We have a new Doberman now, but she's so athletic and young that she hasn't quite figured it all out yet. So we also got a second cat and she is the one to crawl up and comfort me in the long nights.

    Anyone wanna talk about their special 'friends'?

    I am a first time visitor and find Contessa's thoughts quite in sync with what I have been learning over the past five years that I have had CFIDS. The condition has created in my otherwise scattered attention a special receptivity to my dogs, parrots, rabbit, etc,---all the little creatures I keep around my home here in Africa. It is quite a mysterious process. It is as though the chronic loss of focus on cognitive processes of the human world is actually a passageway into a remarkable close communication with my animals. Anyway..... that's how it feels.

    a new cat.my beloved siamese Rudi died in 1998,he was nearly 17,i bought him when he was 12 weeks old.it has taken me so long to get over not having him around.but i'm ready for a new cat,but i don;t know if it's sensible as a kitten will take lots of work and i don't know if i am well enough at the moment,
