    Hi @boltbak

    Thanks for joining us here on Scope's forum. It is great to see that you have joined us. I love emotional support animals, they are wonderful, aren't they! I am particularly amazed at how much emotional support dogs can identify! What type of emotional support animal do you have? I will look forward to hearing your response. Please also feel free to get involved in our other discussions on the forum. I will look forward to seeing you around  :)
