Experience with animals and own pets

I love Fishkeeping and dogs in particular. People are always surprised when their normally aggressive or cautious dogs are friendly towards me! My dad got me a pure-bred Labrador for Christmas when I was 9. Her name is Tisha and is the sweetest dog ever.

When I was in grade 11, I started keeping fish. I started a small tank, with some guppies, mollies, neons, black neons and glassfish. Just more than 3 years later and I now have 5 tanks. A 600l with Bala Sharks, Black Ghost Knifefish, a pleco and Angels, a 250l with 2 juvenile Oscars, a juvenile Fire Eel and a Bristle Nose pleco, a 50l planted tank with Nano fish, a 30l planted shrimp tank and a 15l tank with a Siamese fighting fish (Betta).

I am currently studying in Pretoria and my mom is feeding the 600l tank and my 250l with Oscars in and I clean them when I go home on weekends. I absolutely love those fish and wish I could see and feed them every day. The smaller tanks are with me in Pretoria.

I stayed in East London for 6 months last year in a garden flat and the landlady couldn't believe how much her dogs loved me. She had 2 Collie dogs, Max and Alex and a Jack Russel, Lexi. I am currently staying in a garden flat in Pretoria and the owners have a Huskey, Ice, and a Shar Pei, Misty, who is very aggressive towards strangers and even growls at her owners when they try to pet her sometimes, yet she allowed me to pet her from day one and never growls at me.

Additional Comments: Llewellyn was so good with my Babies. Kassie is a very sceptical and shy dog and just a few minutes with Llewelyn he was lying next to him like he knew him for years. I felt very at ease with him at home, he kept me up to date all the time and went out of his way.
