Experience with animals and own pets

My fur-family consists of 4 members: Lulu, Blommie, Roxanne and Bernard (not counting the geese and roughly 50 sheep).

Lulu is a Rhodesian Ridgeback who's been a part of my family for roughly 8 years. Lulu still believes that she’s a puppy of 4 months and loves acting the part. She’s convinced she’s a lapdog, born in the body a massive Ridgeback. Lulu is terrified of the geese and wouldn’t set foot outside if she catches a whiff of them.

Blommie is my rough-and-tough English Fox terrier, who love adventure, but also cuddles. She’s 7 years old but never turns down an adventure. She loves the outdoors, even if the sheep scare her a bit. He has a massive heart but, doesn’t like admitting it.

Roxanne is almost 13 years now but by far the most energetic of the bunch. She NEVER sits still and loves exploring the yard. Roxanne only joined the family 3 years ago, as she moved here after my grandmother passed, but she instantly became part of the family.

Bernard is my kitty-cat but, believes himself to be a dog. He has no problem telling the dogs what’s what. You can often find him napping on the kitchen floor but, rarely find him outside. He’s a complete sweetheart and can’t stand being alone.
