I had my first dog when I was 12. It was a Doberman. He was the most active and clever dog that we ever had. I loved him very much but one day mum forgot to unleash him and he was stolen. I was very sad and upset. Then dad brought three dogs home. They were stray dogs, we named them Holly, Ricky and Johnson. After a while, Holly fell pregnant. I saw Holly deliver her puppies. They were altogether six of them. I loved each one of them but mum and dad decided too many puppies were in the house therefore we had to give them away to families who loved them. Currently we have one dog a Pom Shih Tzu mix named Rocky. He is a very lovable and loyal dog and follows me everywhere in the house. He is like a shadow to me. He loves to play, cuddle and appreciates a good belly rub. He accompanies me on the sofa and falls asleep beside me. He likes me to pamper him by feeding him by hand. He is a lovable dog. When we first got Rocky he was very timid and shy. He did not want to eat and was very anxious. I was afraid he would be dehydrated so I used a syringe to feed him water. I cooked good food for him and talked to him and reassured him I was there for him. Slowly he started to eat and became active and followed me everywhere. He loves my sons and my hubby. He can play with them very well. We love to cuddle and pat him, if we do not continuously pat him he will nudge and lick our hands to get us to pet him again and again. He is very adorable. He is very lively now compared to the first few days he was in our house and he has put on some weight. When I am at home he will follow me and sit with me. I love dogs. My family members call me Rocky's mummy. I love to pamper, cuddle and give dogs lots of love. I have a son born in the Year of Dog. I am a very patient and caring person. I work as a carer, most of my clients would own a dog or cat. I will help them to care for their dog or cat. Feed them, play with them and of course love them. Their pets also love me very much. Of course I also cannot resist to see their face at the time. I won't say I am the best pet minder because out there are lots of people who love animals dearly. I just give and care the best I can. To me, a dog is my best friend, child, listener and they love you no matter what. They are the best companions in the world.
