About Chris

from an early age I loved animals in any shape or form, but always had a special bond with dogs. I would always want to stop in the street and pet them, I would drive my mum mad screaming in my pram to stop as I wanted to stroke a dog we had passed. When I was five I suffered a massive asthma attack and my lung collapsed and it was touch and go for a while. I had never suffered with asthma before so this was totally out of the blue. As a result my specialist said that having a family dog was out of the question. This went on for years and every appointment I would ask can I have a dog yet, only to be given the same answer. I drove my parents and my specialist up the wall, begging them to let me have a dog. Eventually I received the news I had wanted to hear for so long, I could have a dog. As you would expect the list of dogs I could have was short, very short and we welcomed Kerry a gorgeous Boxer pup into our home. Over the years we had 3 Boxers and everyone was treated like my kid brother or sister (Only child you see) much to the amusement/concern of my parents. They simply were not just dogs, but my best friends. Leaving home was a traumatic experience for me, I wasn't sad to leave mum and dad, but Jack my beloved Boxer. Years of renting in Manchester forbid me from getting a dog, so I resorted to sitting for friends dogs, walking friends dogs and popping home to see my parents obviously, so I could get some "Jack" time. Now I live in Worcester with my two babies, Jasper and Baxter both Cockapoos, and the apples of my eye, obviously I love my partner more, when asked but we both no this isn't true. If you have any doubt of my love/passion/obsession with dogs, I'll let you into a secret many of my friends call me the "Dog Whisperer" as I still have to stop in the street and make a fuss of any dog I see.
