    Hi, @Pauline365 Wellcome to Scope I hope you enjoy our friendly group, like you I'm a doggy person as well and unless you are a doggy person people don't always grasp how we love our dogs so much but they are a part of the family and if you live on your own as both you and I do then they become even closer, I have a wee Jack called Tilly she is such a character and I love her to bits. I'll send you a pic she looks like butter wouldn't melt but she can be a little tyke sometimes.
    anyway, hope you enjoy it here if you want a chat about anything or swap doggy stories give me call.
