Experience with animals and own pets

I've always loved animals and so my dream job was to become a veterinarian, but after the passing of my sweet Kimmy, I realised that I would not have the strength to face other pet parents when the worst case scenario occurs. Hence, my current majors are Biodiversity and Organismal Biology (under the school of Animal, Plant and Environmental Sciences (APES)), which will lead me to my final destination of zoology and conservation.

I'm currently a dog mom to two adorable Boerboels, Brock and Kim (the second). I am in charge of feeding, grooming and walking them. About 4 years ago we had 5 dogs (all Boerboels) and it was the happiest time of my life. They were all naughty but worth the trouble and so a large pet family will be no trouble to me.

In the past, I have handled pets of all shapes and sizes. This included rats, hedgehogs, snakes, salamanders and iguanas. Not forgetting dogs and cats, obviously.
