Experience with animals and own pets

I have quite a few important little characters in my life!

My doggies are Veer, meaning brave, Bijilee, meaning lightning and Jhilmil, meaning ditzy. They were all part of an abandoned litter of Boerboel crossed Boxer crossed German Shepherds and were the last three pups left.

Our hearts immediately went out to them because we were looking for two new doggies, after losing two previous ones to old age and cancer. There was no way we could only take two and ended up adopting all three siblings.

They were introduced to the man of the house, Munna - meaning little boy. His tiny Maltese poodle body had no hindrance to his attitude whatsoever though! The main man in my life is my Crown-Tail Siamese Fighter, Larry 2.0. He is the most energetic, fun loving, interactive fish I have ever seen.

He enjoys watching tv and loves being talked to. His brother, Jugs, is not as social as he is, but enjoys an occasional soccer game! I have had the privilege of being entrusted to take care of my friends and family's pets - Lola the bunny, Bronx the bearded dragon and Ranu the African Grey. I have also volunteered at a horse shelter a few times!
