Animals have always been a part of my life.   I grew up on a farm with a collection of different animals: horses, cattle, pigs, cats, dogs, chickens and turkeys.  The majors for my first degree in Agricullture was in Poultry and Livestock.  As a professional agrologist my work included being Manager of provincial livestock programmes and supervising specialists in beef, dairy, pork, sheep, and fur. 

As an independant adult my first purchase was a great big doghouse.  Granted I got to live there too, but I wanted to own my own house so I wouldnt have to keep begging landlords to allow pets.   I went to the SPCA and picked out a lovely little female Labrador Retriever mix.   My first clue to my poor choice was the frenzy she put herself through on the car ride home.... barking like mad, leaping & spinning and generally being crazy.  At that point I had already fallen in love with her and it was too late.  She taught me SO much!!  I'd never been to an obedience class before.  I got hooked on it, and the rest is history.
