About Tina
Growing up in a Greek Australian family. Parents being migrants from Greece! Pets were always are part of our family also, mainly cats. Vividly remember growing up from a young child and having a cat to play with or to sleep on my bed with me at night! I also have memories of having my very own pet rabbit during Primary School years, Dad bought him ( Snowy) for me as a surprise, and he grew to become huge!! Since we only lived in a Milk Bar back then ( yeah these old fossils were awesome in my day), back yard was concrete, no grass for him to run around in, so, we made the decision to let him live the rest of natural life, running free in the backyard my Auntie had, at the time ( which was the size of almost a football field). There he grew, he ate, he ran around freely, I would visit with on most weekends, when I could, with the family of course. . Until one sad day, when I went to see him and found out he had managed to escape the backyard and disappear. After that, it was just cats, when I tried to bring home a dog, Dad loved it but mum kicked up a fuss, so I had to give it away! After I left home I bought my very first puppy, a Rottweiler (Jackie), gorgeous dog, she unfortunately mated with my partners pet Rocky ( german shepherd X) and had a litter of 9 pups. Little did I know back then, how long their pregnancy lasts for and before I knew it, I was helping her give birth cos she was too young a dog herself and looked like she just wanted to pass out with all the effort she was putting in to push them all out. After having a family of my own and since I needed mums help to help me become a first time mum, she didnt want Jackie at her place.Only because she was terrified of her huge size, so once again I had to give one of my animals away. Until I had my child and moved out of mums place and into my own again. Once I tried to retrieve my girl (Jackie) again, once again I was distraught with the news that she too had managed to escape the backyard and run free God knows where. The next dog I managed to buy from the RSPCA in Burwood was another Rottweiler - 3 yr old male. He was a gently giant with my two young ones, They loved him and he treasured them both in return. Tragedy struck once again and I was forced to move out of that place and once again I lost all my pets. Then in 2003 while living in Wurruk a small suburb just before Sale in Gipplsand, I came across another RSPCA, went and had a look and there was this boisterous 6mth old Border Collie pup, who would not stop barking and jumping up and down on her cage door just to say 'hi' to me. If, I walked away she would go off again, and the madness continued til I bought her finally and made her mine!! They wouldn't let me have her until they micro chipped her and desexed her ( which is sad really cos she never got the chance to become a mum). And today, she's still as boisterous and sometimes energetic as she always was, also loves being indoors too....
