A Family Full
Growing up, I always had pets. My first dog was a boisterous boxer named Seamus who was my constant companion as a kid. And as I grew older, more and more pets joined our family.
At various times during my childhood, I shared my home with dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, and even a pet beetle (true story). I learned a lot from my furry (and not-so-furry) friends during my formative years. They taught me about love, companionship, responsibility, and the joy that comes from taking care of another living creature.
