    Hi @J56 - Welcome to the community & thank you for telling us about yourself. I also have neurological problems (Chiari 1 Malformation), & Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, which affects everything else!
    Many here are pet lovers, & there's one thread where people discuss them, & share photos, so you might like to look there. I hope you enjoy looking around the forum, & join in the various chats.
    If you have any questions, or need advice, please say, as everyone here is very supportive.

    Hi @J56 and welcome to the Community.  It is great to have you on board and thank you for sharing with us.  You sound like a busy lady!  Your 5 chihuahuas sound lovely!  I bet they keep you busy!  I enjoyed reading about your passion for history as it sounds fascinating.  Have visited Oxford in the past and loved it!  I too use a wheelchair some of the time.  I hope you enjoy your time with us and meet some new friends along the way.  It is a great place for friendship and support so please feel free to look around and join in any of the discussions that you fancy.  I look forward to seeing you on the Community and reading more of your posts.  If there is anything we can help/support you with then please just let us know.  All the best.  :smiley:

    They are all absolutely gorgeous @J56!  Do you breed puppies a lot?  I love their names!  The painting of China is lovely, so sorry to hear that you lost her.  You sound like a busy lady!  What kind of book are you writing?  Do you enjoy tracing your family history?  It always sounds so interesting.  You will meet lots of new friends on here as everyone is lovely!  Thanks for sharing the beautiful pics of your dogs.  :smiley:

    Hi again @J56 - Thank you very much for sharing your lovely photos; they're adorable! Sorry about your little China, but what a beautiful painting of her.
    My son has a (usually) adorable little Bedlington terrier, who is fascinated by my kitten, & won't leave her alone. Today I was rather glad to hand him back....I look after him 2 or 3 days a week when both my son & his wife are working. They have a cat too, but today you'd think he'd never seen one before! She missed her afternoon 'catnap,' so is fast asleep beside me now.
    I look forward to seeing your other photo, or more!
