Experience with animals and own pets

I have a Daschund called Princess, she is 10 years old but that should not fool you to think that she isn’t cheeky and playful! I still consider her to be a puppy judging on all the energy she has. I have grown up with Princess and she's been there for more than half of my life. Princess is just one of the most amazing animals that could ever exist, she is more than just my best friend and I have a very close relationship with her. Princess and I share a love of food, and because of that we love going for walks and playing around t. Unfortunately, this doesn’t make a difference on her 10kg weight!

She is a very protective, jealous and cheeky dog, as she has grown up to be alone for most of her life, until we brought in our 3-year-old German shepherd, Nala. Our close family members had been relocating and needed a safe home for Nala. But sadly, she has passed away due to diabetes. Her passing shattered me completely. After Nala passed away Princess has become sad and sleeps in my room and I often must tuck her in to provide her with the comfort he needs.

I have a great love for animals, and greatly enjoy their company. I feel that pets make life better. Apart from dogs I also have a special love for birds. I had an African Grey bird who recently passed away likely due to old age, he lived a long life and I loved him dearly as he always mimicked my laughter.

Animals give me a sense of happiness when sometimes humans can't, I would love to meet new animals and enjoy their company just as much as my own!

Additional notes: Makyla loves animals and I trust her with my dogs. Being an animal lover myself, I would not feel comfortable leaving my dogs with someone who doesn't love dogs and who wouldn't take care of them like their own. My dogs are now used to Makyla and love playing with her, therefore I always ask her to take care of them when I'm away as i trust her.
