Experience with animals and own pets

I love my German Shepherd, Einstein, to bits. Ever since the day his furry little paws entered my heart at 6 weeks old, I was in love! In high school I couldn't wait to get home so we could go for a walk in the veld across my house. We both enjoyed those walks tremendously and on lazy weekend afternoons we would share a good heart to heart as I groomed him. We were inseparable until I sadly moved away for studies.

I have recently however, fell in love with my girlfriend's six dogs and have developed a special bond with one particular furry child, Pepsi, whom I always have on my lap as we watch TV.

I have always had a special place in my heart for all animals. I usually remember a pet's name better than it's owners name!
