Description of your pets / spouse / family
I live with my husband Damien, son Jacob and daughter Emily in the local area. We share our home with a rescued stray domestic short haired cat, Violet, a Cocker Spaniel x, Bailey; a Chihuahua x Foxie, Suzy who was rescued as a stray pup after being found in the middle of the road at Bankstown, and a Jack Russell Terrier, Buddy who was also rescued as a young dog after suffering terrible abuse.
One interesting fact about you that no one knows!
I always wanted to be a vet nurse. I remember talking to a vet when my dog was getting her vaccinations, I was 5 years old, and I told the vet that I wanted to be a vet nurse. He asked me why I didn’t want to be a vet. I replied, “because I don’t want to put my finger up dog’s bums!” He laughed and said nurses have to do that too. I didn’t believe him! (I should have!) I still love my job … dog’s bums and all!
