Experience with animals and own pets

I share my life with a dog called Toffie. He is of an unknown age due to the fact that a family friend found him as a stray and we took him in. He is extremely lovable, loves spending time with me in my room and makes what is mine, his.

Growing up, I shared my childhood with Charlie, a Golden Retriever. Sadly, he has passed away.

I love all animals and enjoy their company!
