Experience with animals and own pets

I am so lucky to have Rosabelle and Oreo in my life. Rosabelle is a 9-year-old black and white English Springer Spaniel and Oreo is a 1 3/4-year-old Pekingese/Pomeranian. I love them both to bits and my favourite thing to do with them is hug them. Oreo was a rescue from the SPCA and I believe whole heartedly that people should adopt not shop.

Growing up, my family has had many different dogs over the years. We had two small Maltese dogs named Max and Tufty, a liver and white English Springer Spaniel named Jack and then Rosabelle and Oreo. I have experience with looking after my family's pets when they go away.
