Experience with animals and own pets

For as long as I can remember, my life has been surrounded with animals!

When I was a young girl we had two big doggies, Sheba (a Border Collie) and Tag (a Border Collie cross Chow Chow). I have fond memories of my spending my days as a child in the garden playing with them. This is where my love for animals started...

Shortly after that, we rescued a stray cat at a family friends' factory. Kitty spent many years in our family home.

I am lucky to share my life now with my very own Boston Terrier, Frankie. He is just over one year and I love to spend time lounging around with him. I often invite our fellow Boston Terrier doggie friends over for play dates!

I have had lots of experience looking after pets for all of my family members. I have a passion for meeting new pets and getting to know their precious personalities!
