Hi all. Just a quick intro. I'm Larisa, human partner-in-crime to a magnificent mutt named Laika and a cautious-but-charming cat called Cassie. I came to this forum to see if other folks have similar experiences with their older dogs as I'm having with Laika at the moment (I'll post questions in the appropriate part of the forum), but I just wanted to say hi before jumping in. So, hi!
