Experience with animals and own pets

Ever since I can remember I have had a love for animals. We had an English Bulldog when I was growing up and I loved playing with him. I currently have two toy poms aged 10 and 14. The older one (Sandy) is quite a scary cat, she has been very nervous since a small puppy. She loves playing fetch with a tennis ball or a teddy and will become your best friend if you play with her. The younger one (Kiara) loves any attention given to her and will put her paw on you if you stop giving her attention. They both love cookies and will pretend to go wee in the mornings just to get one.

I also have 3 adorable budgies. One of them named Zoey, is in his own cage in the house and loves talking to me. He also loves watching tv with you and will often sit next to his bell and say things like: “Pretty Boy” and “Kiss Kiss Kiss”.

I am not only interested in domestic pets and have always loved being in the wild. I love taking pictures of wild animals including the many species of birds. The most fun I have had is when we did a trip through Botswana and Zambia, we camped in the middle of no where between all the wild animals. I have had so many different experiences with wild animals, I could write a book. One of these experiences include sitting on a camp chair next to a dam, and within minutes we were surrounded by hundreds of elephants!

I have volunteered at Woodrock Animal Rescue and had a lot of fun walking the dogs and spending time with them. I have also done pet sitting with three beautiful doggies; an Alsatian, a German Shepherd and a mix between a Sausage Dog and a Poodle. I can’t wait to meet YOUR furkids and look forward to giving them lots of love and care!
