Experience with animals and own pets

I have two adorable medium dogs at home (half cocker spaniel, half chow) – who are spoilt with cuddles, kisses, treats and walks/jogs. Their names are Sandy and Oreo. I also have a cat (Patsy), she’s at the ripe old age of 18 years! She sleeps on my bed and I have to feed her twice (sometimes three times) a day.

We also have a fish pond with goldfish.

I used to have a Rottweiler, his name was Bruno – I feel very comfortable with cats and dogs of all sizes.

I’ve looked after our neighbour’s Ridgeback dogs before, where I had to feed them twice a day and change their water. I have a soft spot for animals and believe that because they can’t speak for themselves and ask, we have to provide for their needs and look out for them. Animals are so full of love for humans, how could we not return the love and care in abundance?

I look forward to playing, cuddling and looking after all kinds of lovely pets!
