All my life I have loved animals. I can't even imagine a life without animals. Animals can be your trusted friends, that are always by your side, know when you need extra love and care. Even to this day I still love watching animal shows on TV, learning about them, watching them and just be in awe of them. There are some really amazing animals out there, the way they live, the way they take care of each other and protect themselves is really a wonder of nature at times.
None of my parents really grew up with animals around them, so convincing them to get a family pet was not easy and met with lots of resistance. It took forever to persuade them that I would be a great animal caregiver and be responsible for the pet. So after long and probably painful to them nagging about getting a pet, they finally gave in.....and I got a white little guinea pig from a friend. I named him Nickel and he was the best guinea pig friend ever. To this day I still think about my little furry friend.
