I have always wanted a dog since I was a child, but my parents weren't on board with the idea. So I had to settle for spending all my free time feeding and playing with the strays in my neighbourhood.

In the summer of 2013, my brother and I spotted a little puppy in front of our building while playing. We made her a bed and spent our summer holiday feeding her, playing with her and taking care of her.

In 2018, Ivy and Brownie came into my life. They were Indie sisters adopted at my previous organisation as puppies. They got close to me as I took care of them, played with them, trained them and taught them to shake hands and give Hi5's.
