Hi All,

My name is George, and I am a huge animal lover. I believe mostly that animals are more trustworthy than human beings, and are in most cases a lot more loyal too!

33 years old now, I have walked with lions, a cheetah, elephants (chased them away from eating our mango trees to death in Zimbabwe), hyenas, bushpig and buffalo to name a few. Throw in a few giraffes, hundreds of zebras and such like animals, and round off with more than a few hanfuls of snakes of all kinds of poisonous and non poisonous levels

So! I dont have a dog - why? Cos I am looking to emigrate to Canada and want to do a dog job there, and I dont believe that its fair to drag animals around or store them in tight confined spaces as I moved around due to work etc.

I made friends with everyone elses dogs and pets, and often took them for walks and trained them etc. Good fun.

In our family, we have had everything from Foxies to Pit Bulls to Irish Wolfhounds to Maltese Poodles to pavement specials to African grays parrots, Bass, chameleons, pigeons, tortoises, barbel etc.

Hope I can stick a few pics up as I get them, just wanted to introduce myself at first.

These are two animals that were holed up in a small garden that I took out almost daily when I lived close by. Just beautiful animals.
