Walked, Loved & Cared for Because you Care!
In 1998 I found out I was unable to have children as you can imagine this was very difficult and painful to hear.
My life felt empty.
I adopted my first dog in 1999, she was a cocker spaniel named Brandi. Brandi brought so much happiness into my life and showed me such unconditional love.
I came to realize I wasn’t meant to have children as my calling was to care for animals. I truly believe things happen for a reason and not having children was a reason for me because loving, caring and helping animals was what I was meant to do.
My First Pet Changed my Life
Having Brandi in my life, changed me for the better, she made me realize having a pet was the most amazing thing anyone can ever get to experience.
I could have a horrible day in my office job and come home to Brandi waiting at the door, she knew always the time I was due to come home, smart girl.
Her tail was wagging so hard I use to worry in case it fell off, lol, she loved giving kisses and the joy of happiness she showed because I was home sure helped me forget the day I had at the office!
The Evolution of Julspops!
Brandi sadly passed away in September 2015 at the age of 16 1/2 years old.
She was my Brandi Pops; my nickname is Jules so I put the two together in honour of Brandi for her showing me how life can be with owning a pet my business was named ‘Julspops’. Brandi “Pops” is always with me wherever I go.
It wasn’t until 2016 when my Pet Business came about, I had to wait until it was the right time in my life (my business started due to an unfortunate situation) but now, I haven’t looked back and know this is where my heart belongs.
The only other time I had a pet in my life was a rabbit called Thumper, my dad showed birds which I got to hang out with at times, feeding them, cleaning their cages etc.
I never had any other pet until Brandi came into my life.
For more than 20 years I have had the pleasure of owning pet(s) my dogs now are Summer and Pebbles both rescues from “Helping Paws Rescue” in Alymer, Ontario.
Not only do I get to share my life with my girls but also my amazing husband Gordon who has been very supportive whilst starting my pet business.
