Experience with animals and own pets

Animals are a major part of my life! I share my home, my bed (and mostly my food!) with two energetic Irish Terrier Puppies called Charlie and Daisy. Although they are 5 years old, they are still my babies;).

I also have 3 rats - Sean, Dean and Bean - and 1 hamster- Nugget.

We adopted the two Irish Terriers from a dog who had puppies which would have gone to the SPCA. I saved my rats from a neglected pet shop where they were very malnourished and sad. Now they are cute, fat and flourishing! My hamster was a gift from a friend.

I had plenty more dogs and animals growing up - a very willful and leader-of-the-pack Siberian Husky; a stubborn, yet cuddly and lovable Basset, a wiener dog that stole our garlic bread and was stinky for at least a week (if you know what I mean...); a Maltese Poodle who was blind;and a lap-dog Great Dane.

My saddest goodbye was my Basset - Pippie - who I got as a gift when I was 5 years old. We grew up together and he was certainly my best buddy. I said goodbye to him when he was 13 years old.

I know how special our fur-babies are to us and I am very keen on getting to know new friends and family-members (and the owners of course).

I have had a lot of experience taking care of animals of all shapes and sizes throughout my life. I am also proud to say that throughout my childhood I had also done several research projects concerning animals and I tremendously enjoy working with animals.

I am a perfectionist - your home will be very safe (and neat/clean) with me!
