My house used to be called the neighborhood zoo. Growing up my family had everything from leopard geckos and tortoises to a Dalmatian and a Rottweiler mutt. I have had animals all my life, which was always a lot of fun to me, and they have definitely made a huge impact on my life, and the person I am today.
They taught my responsibility, selflessness, trust, compassion and unconditional love. More importantly, they make me happy.
They are always happy to see me, and I forget any stress or unhappiness when I see my dog’s tails wagging, hear my cat purring, or hear my horse’s knickers.
I am a bleeding heart animal lover. I have been and will be all my life. Animals will always surround me, because at the end of the day how can I not be happy when I go home to a house full of creatures that love me?
