Experience with animals and own pets
I am thankful for my pets because they complete my family.
My three Schnauzers and African grey fill my life with laughter and love. Pets in general have kind and loving hearts and deserve the same in return. Every day when I get home, my pets greet me with the excitement.
I enjoy giving my dogs a pampering bath on a Friday and taking them to the farmer’s market on Saturdays. Each pet is different. My African grey enjoys the occasional late morning sun and fresh cut fruit.
In the past, I have been given the responsibility of staying over at my aunt’s house and looking after her Pug, Boela, while they were on holiday. In December 2016, I looked after my brother’s Dachshund while he was at work. Her name is Mia and she had a very expensive operation on her lower body because she struggled to walk. Pets are fragile and need a little extra care at times.
Every time I get to spend time with other people’s pets, or with my own, I realize that pets motivate us to play, be affectionate, seek adventure and be loyal.

We really apprecaited it.
