Experience with animals and own pets

I grew up on a farm where I had numerous encounters with various animals throughout my childhood, especially my own dogs and cats. I have a dog named Delilah, who loves to play fetch with me, a dog named Potato, who loves belly rubs and lies down as soon as he sees me approaching, and two dogs named Stripes and Dots - my sister’s Jack Russells that never stop running and bouncing around me! I have always been an animal lover and have also cared for many friends and family members’ pets.
