Experience with animals and own pets

I love my 4 legend friends, Jessie, Emily, Stoffle and Pippa. Jessie is a 9-year old Jack Russell, Emily is a 7-year old Jack Russell and both Stoffle and Pippa are 5-year old Maltese Poodles - white and fluffy!

I always have fun with them when I am around them and they are always there for me, give me love when I am down, and excited with me when I am excited. We love playing with balls and running around being crazy or playing catch and tug of war. It a treat splashing into the swimming pool and cooling down on a hot summer day!

My experience with other animals are mostly the same as my own - taking care of them, playing, giving them love and snuggles.

I love treating family members’ and friends’ animal children as my own and making them feel special!
