      Hi Bethany, I have one dog named Waldo! He is a golden retriever and his 8th birthday is coming up soon so I’m going to buy him a new toy and some tasty treats. He absolutely loves going to the beach and he’s a really good swimmer!

      Hi Bethany! Yes I have a dog at home in Mayo, she is a terrier and I am missing her very much as I live in Cork now!

      I have two kittens almost fully grown, a tabby with a white belly called Rocko and a black cat with a tiny whit patch on her belly called Luna. They are the cutest <3

      I grew up in a house full of animals. Unfortunately I don’t have a pet now, finding a new temporary home every time I travel would be too much of stress for me and the pet.

      Hi Bethany! We have 5 axolotls. These are underwater animals – around 20-25cm long salamanders. If you type “axolotl” into google you’ll get plenty of pictures of them. We keep them in 200L aquarium.

      I have two dogs and two cats! My dogs are called Bruno and Poppy. Bruno is a black and tan Cavalier King Charles and Poppy is a mix between the Yorkshire terrier and a Jack Russell (she is really tiny!!). Everyone always thinks Poppy is a puppy, but she and Bruno are actually the same age – they will both turn eight in June 🙂 We got them as puppies a few days apart so they would both always have company. They love each other so much!
      My cats are called Toby and Ben. They are brothers, although Ben is black and white, and Toby is ginger and white! (Brothers with different hair colours!) Toby and Ben are only turning two in July. When we first brought them home Poppy and Bruno weren’t very impressed, but they are all good friends now! Bruno is very fluffy and cuddly, so Toby loves to cuddle into him when he takes a nap.
      I am really enjoying getting to spend lots of time with all four of my pets during quarantine, and Poppy and Bruno are loving all of the extra walks!!
      Do you have any pets?

      I have a dog, Tommy. He is 8 years now and is a mixture of poodle or bichon. He made all the way from Colombia with my wife and me when we came to Ireland; we could say he is our “son” – He is the only one we need to take care of.

      Unfortunately no I don’t have any pets. I’m a complete dog person and would love to have a pet dog, but right now I live in an apartment and I feel like it wouldn’t be fair to keep one here. I also travel a lot with work and it would be really hard to look after a doggo well because of that.

      I have two cats 😀 – two weird cats. The one is scared of everything; she is called Tasha. The other one doesn’t give a damn about anything and always goes to the toilet in our neighbours’ plant pots :D, she is called Clio.

      We got them from the rescue center in Phibsboro, Dublin. They were abandoned with their kittens and while some people adopted the kittens very fast Tasha and Clio had to stay behind. So we took them home.

      They are really funny 🙂 and I am happy they are around during the lockdown to destruct me from work from time to time 🙂

      Unfortunately, no not at the moment. I would like a dog though. I’ve had a dog, fish and a guinnea when I was a child.
