Hi there, My name is Trisha and I'm 26. I'm a stay-at-home/work-at-home mom. We do not currently have a dog because we can't afford to give it the care it needs, but I absolutely love them. I grew up with a dog and she lived a long life before passing away. My mom got a second dog shortly before I moved out to start my own life. I love that dog too (even though I didn't really spend a lot of time with her). I actually have an autistic son. One day I'd like to explore getting a therapy dog for him. I just know they aren't cheap, but I've heard great things about them.
