Growing up in the suburbs of SE Queensland, we always had pets. From dogs, cats, birds, chooks, goats and I believe one of my brothers had a snake for a short amount of time.

Venny who decided to adopt us about ten years ago, when I was still living in my hometown. She stayed with Charlotte, the lady I had been living with when I moved to the GC. All these years later, the girls had a ball with her when we briefly lived at Charlotte's before moving to Dubai.
In our first year living together as a couple, we decided to get a dog. Along came our cheeky boy, Toby, a sweet shar pei. Six months later, his sister Bailey was born and we fell in love with her the day of her birth when we held her in the palm of our hands.
They grew with our family and it was hard to say good-bye when we moved over here. Maybe when we live somewhere more suited, and are not planning on being away for long stretches of time each year we will have some pets again.
