Experience with animals and own pets

One of my oldest memories growing up was running around in my back garden playing with my childhood dog. I didn't know it at the time, but this was an incredible gift and privilege, as it taught me responsibility and empathy at a young age.

This has allowed me to grow up as a well-rounded individual who is very well liked by animals. I believe they can see much more of the true nature and goodness within us. I look forward to taking care of them as they have taken care of me.
