When I was young, all I wanted was horses and dogs (and books) and wanted to become an author or vet. My parents gave in on the horse front, and I then waited until my 30s to have a dog.
My busy life of work and travel, doesn’t allow me to have a pet of my own, but I borrow whenever I can. And I work hard to send my sister on world travels so that I can babysit her cockapoo.
Look who I travelled Devon with this year and last year:
And here’s a step back in time, to my daughter and our dog in the very early 2000s, and me and my pony in the early 1970s.
