11 Things About Me:

No huge breeds though), 12 fish (various kinds) and 6 hermit crabs. Most have passed on :( I currently only have 3 cats.
3. I am a huge advocate for taking care of animals properly and it kills me to see people keep hermit crabs in little containers without the proper set up. 
4. I was a dog trainer for 6 years. I have worked at 2 major pet retailers as well as a police training facility. I never did drug, bomb or bite work at the police facility just basic obedience but, it was awesome to see the other trainers work on these things.
