    Hello guys! I am doing my 3rd year uni project on pet attachment and its effects on flourishing! If you own a DOG / CAT and would be willing to fill out my 5 min questionnaire it would be much appreciated!

    I am looking in to see if the closer you are to your pet for example greater attachment to see if it increases aspects such as well being :)

    I have filled it in . I have poor health so I'm never going to flourish as such , but pets certainly enriched my life.

    Thanks for posting . That explains a lot .

    "Anyone can flourish, but it will likely require some effort to get there."

    I like this statement . I think it gives hope and that although life is often difficult , it's possible to find happiness within your circumstances.

    I’ve completed your survey.
    Been through some very difficult times with Heidi by my side.
    I can actually say Im flourishing again. I didn’t expect to and doubt I would have without her.

    for some reason I can't get in to the survey. So I'll just say.....

    When I had a Stroke 6 years ago Dillon be came my nurse, I couldn't move without him he'd let me put my hand on his head to balance myself, if he was worried about me he would fetch Hubby, he always watch me even when he knew I was OK he still kept I eye on me. He developed a special bark that he only used if he thought I need help.
