Luna’s job as an Emotional Support Animal never ends. Basically she keeps me company and gives me a sense of purpose in that I take care of her.
I got a certificate from my provider stating she is such. Because of this, there was no pet deposit to pay when signing the lease for my apartment. It was waived.
Emotional support animal is different than a service or therapy dog who needs extensive training.
Luna’s job is to love and be loyal not leaving my side. She is like a companion animal but I think emotional support would be more of a priority because it’s a mental health need.
She is a 5 year old Papillon whom I purchased when she was 3 months old. She weighs 10 pounds now.
She makes my apartment a home in that I have someone waiting for me when I’m out.
She is very friendly towards people, eager to engage and interact, yet needs to be protected when around other dogs.
Not every dog will be Luna’s friend which she just can’t understand.
Luna is pure, innocent, and vulnerable. She reminds me of myself.
With her big ears she looks like Gizmo or maybe even an elf.
