Experience with animals and own pets

I’ve been privileged enough to have many pets growing up - ranging from Budgies to Boxers. As a child, I also spent a lot of time on my grandparents’ farm, exposing me to some interesting animal personalities.

Over the years, I have also owned a number of different pets, my first being Bonnie and Clyde (my two budgies) and then later, Jackie the Jack Russell and Sasha the Boxer and Pitbull cross.

I have had a total of two Jackies (Jack Russell’s still being my favourite animal breed), a full cage of budgies (Esquire and his entourage), a Cockatiel named “Kokosh” (which means chicken), a Dachshund named Patch, and a Pitbull named Bruno.
