Experience with animals and own pets

As I am from a farm I am no stranger in to caring for animals. I assisted in the administration of mammalian births, administration of medications and general upkeep of many kinds of animals. As I am now a University student in the city and thus far from home I don't see my pets as much as I would like to. At home I have a Scottish sheepdog, Cindy, whom I regard as part of the family. She has been a constant in my life and I feel that the friendship I experience with her has no substitute. There is also Jack, an Alsatian with the longest legs I've ever encountered on a dog. He is very clumsy and makes me laugh on a regular basis.
