Experience with animals and own pets

My favourite family member to cuddle is Patchie. He is a 4-year-old Pekingese. I love taking him for walks and trying to play fetch with him (I say trying because he never seems to bring the ball back). He is such a sweetheart and not only my family member, but also my best friend.

I am crazy about animals - you might say I like them just as much (if not more) than people. I have pet sat for two families before; one had a puppy and the other had two dogs. It was such a great experience and I love meeting new animals and their families!
