Is Kimmie an Emotional Support Animal?
How does Kimmie brighten your day?
Kimmie has the same type of personality as me. She is lively and funny and just as strange as I am. She is funny about who she trusts, as am I, but we found each other and share an amazing bond none can match nor break. She responds to the weird nicknames I’ve given her and the way she lumbers towards me when I call her brings a smile to my face every time. She has saved my life, without a doubt.
How does Kimmie support / love you in ways humans cannot?
She is very intuitive and knows when something is wrong. I dont have to say it at all and she will come to me and rest her head in my arms.
