Glad to have you aboard.
Your daughter must have had her first child when she was pretty young, unless my math is off-kilter? Sorry to hear about the losses of this year (Alice and your Baby Chihuahua). There is no good time to lose a loved one, person or pet.
Sounds like your home is pretty busy and active, with lots of love to go around. Hope you'll find some friends and lovers on our site; visit our Dating & Friendships subforum
if you haven't already been there.
