I've never not lived with dogs my whole life. Back in Hong Kong, I had several different breeds of dogs accompanying me when I grew up. Now I still have 2 lovely pugs back at home. I also did some volunteer work at a dog walking charity.
I love being around dogs all the time. Now I have a flatmate with a cat. I would take care of the cat when my flatmate's abroad. I just miss hanging out with dogs and just grasp all the chance I have with them!
