Hi Kitty, I also just joined today. Like you, I'm a homemaker (?), but much older. Hahaha. Both my girls are now in college, so I rescued 2 puppies and they keep me very busy. The oldest is almost a year and the youngest is 4 months. I know exactly what you mean about the super attention needy. Hopefully we can both get a lot of information and tips here all while chatting with good people!!
