Experience with animals and own pets

My childhood companion took the form of a chocolate brown Miniature Dachshund named Noodle. Noodle was very affectionate, very active and convinced that he was the biggest dog in town. When I got older, I was lucky enough to find my Ginger Point Siamese, Pappas, at a rescue center. Pappas is very talkative and has long conversations with me every morning before I leave for university.

Growing up, my family has always had many different types of pets, whether it was our own pets or animals we were temporarily looking after . We have had many cats, long haired and short haired, friendly and unfriendly. We have also had many dogs join our family, big and small - the biggest being a Bullmastiff crossed Boerboel named Caesar.

I love playing with dogs and one of my favourite things in life is afternoon dog walks. I have also been lucky enough to share my bedroom with some beautiful fish and furry hamsters.
