What is your favourite animal and why? I'd probably need to pick dogs. I think it would be a very sad world without them! I'm very fond of orcas and otters too. What pets do you have and what are their names? I have 3 Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. My oldest is Izzie, who is very spoiled being our only girl. She was my first agility dog and we competed at Crufts 2014 together which was a huge achievement! George is our middle child and has a bit of a quirky personality. We started competing in agility last year and he's way too fast for me to handle. Charlie is the baby of the family and loves to wind up his sister. He's just started his training and is coming on great! What's the best pet name that you've ever come across? It's probably bad to say my own.. but I think George the Cavalier is pretty cool. What is your favourite famous animal? Hedwig, Pigwidgeon, 101 Dalmations puppies, Lady from Lady&theTramp, Eeyore, Charlotte from Charlotte's Web.. it's too hard to decide on one. What's the best aspect of working with Vets4Pets? Seeing all of the pets who come to visit us, as well as meeting staff and clients who are crazy about their animals.
