Experience with animals and own pets

In my life I have owned a variety of pets that were very dear to me. I currently own two dogs, Stikkels and Elsa. Both are rescue dogs and as a result we are unsure what breed they are but I love them to bits. I love teaching them new tricks and I enjoy cuddling with them as often as I can.

Growing up I owned a snake, cockatiel, a budgie and a hamster. My cockatiel was an especially favourite as she had this lovely habit of sitting in the crook of my neck while I read a book. I love all my pets and I am always concerned about whether they are happy and enjoying life to the fullest.
