Experience with animals and own pets

My whole life I have been surrounded by animals, from hamsters, budgies and our cat – Asjas, to a Corgi named Buksie, who was my best friend in Gr2 and a massive Rottweiler and Caesar. Our most recent family member is a Rhodesian Ridgeback named Nina. She is only a year old, but she has become a good friend in a very short space of time.

My love for these pets is strong and I enjoy spending time with them. I recently developed a strange fascination with Tarantulas and aquariums as well. I hope to one day own a massive Tarantula and call it Fluffy. Nonetheless, I can say with certainty that my life without animals would have been a lot more dull.
