Experience with animals and own pets

"Pets are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole." - Unknown.

My life is made whole by 3 gorgeous dogs, 2 cheerful birds and a pond full of fish. The newest addition to my family is our Ridgeback/German Shepherd, Bailey, who we adopted as a puppy from the SPCA a year ago. Morgan, a Jack Russell/Daschund, is a rescue from Wetnose. We met him at the Homeless Animals Day in 2011 and he immediately crept into our hearts, so much so that we couldn't leave him behind. And Sammy, a true 'pavement special' who is now 10 years old, has been in my life since he was just 4 weeks old. I love to play with the 3 of them and Sammy and Bailey enjoy a swim every now and again.

I absolutely adore animals and would have so many more if I could. I've volunteered at the SPCA in the past and have experience looking after family and friends' pets when they have been away.
