I am a widower, I have been on my own for the past 3 years. I am 82 years old, I have a little Yorkshire terror called Alfie who is 3 years old. I am registered disabled and I have difficulty in walking, my feet are very painful.

    Hi @Rodge - welcome to the community. Thank you for joining & sharing about yourself. I'm very sorry you're on your own now, but hope that Alfie helps just a little. My son has a Bedlington terrier called Stan, & I have a 1 year old cat called Shadow.
    We have a link where people who have pets talk about them, & share photos. You might be interested to have a look. See: https://community.scope.org.uk/discussion/71496/your-pets-pictures-please-share#latest
    Have you talked to your GP about your painful feet & difficulty walking? They may be able to help.
    I hope you enjoy being part of Scope's online community, as everyone here is very friendly & supportive. :)
