Experience with animals and own pets

I love early mornings, coffee in bed with my dogs by my head. This is my everyday reality and I wouldn't want it any other way. My 2 Jack Russels and Swiss Shepherd keep me warm during the cold winter nights and sweaty in the hot summer days (they're active dogs).

Rewind a couple of years when I was growing up with 2 Boxers, Zorba and Shinghi, that my parents adopted. I have had many challenges in my life, one of them being learning how to say Zorba and Shinghi at the ripe age of 4. Over the years I've had my fair share of animal companions ranging from "fits in my hand" to "could knock me over if he tried." The domestic animals that have been part of my family include mice, hamsters, rabbits, fish, budgies, lovebirds and green cheeked Conures.

My animal experiences are far from over - I regularly visit our family farm where I spend my days with cows, sheep, pigs and chickens. Animals are a big part of my life and that will never change. I am thankful for the opportunity to care for and pamper your pets.
