Experience with animals and own pets

In my opinion, animals should be a major part of everybody’s life and they have been for me. Ever since I could walk, I have been surrounded by countless 4-legged friends, birds, lizards and yes, I have had my fair share of snakes and other slippery pets.

My favourite animals are birds and I have owned many over the years. These include a rescued weaver which had fallen out of its nest to an African Grey which knew about 10 words!

Dogs will always hold a special place in my heart, having owned 5 in the past. Pixel was a Border Collie who had the most energy out of the lot and loved playing catch. Zena was a Boerboel with the cutest rolls on her snout and was adorable! Tinker was a Fox Terrier and just loved walks around the garden and finally, there was Lulu, a Bull Terrier who had a passion for running into closed doors and carrying sticks the wrong way around!

Currently, we have a Staffordshire Bull Terrier named Jock and a rabbit, both of which I love to bits!
