How to teach an old dog new tricks and the rest

What do you want to be when you grow up?

on November 21, 2013


I grew up believing I would be MANY things, a school teacher, a counselor, a business owner, a mum, a wife, a cat owner, a travel agent – you name it I wanted to be it, except I never wanted anything to do with dogs, ironic isnt it? I grew up with a fear off dogs, I did however owned a dog when i was about 9 or 10 named Ripper – he was there one day and gone the next 😦 thanks mum!! But I guess i just never grew up with them or was ever really introduced to dogs. So here I am aged 29 and about to start my studies of becoming a Vet Nurse. When I met my husband he owned a Rottweiler, talk about facing your fears, we then added Milli to our pack believing she was a rottweiler but we have since been led to believe she may be part Labrador! So anyway Milli was my turning point. I had never fallen in love with anybody as much as I had with her. She has shown me how to be nurturing, enjoy the little things in life, how to laugh at nothing and what it means to be put another first. So my love for DOGS grew. I started following a million dog rescue sites, watching dogs reunited on you-tube and now i find myself crying almost every day at the sheer lengths humans go to for dogs – good and bad.

So 2014 brings me a year of 2 years worth of study to become a Vet Nurse!! I never had a real goal, But thanks to Milli – I do now!
