Rob:..."I finally decided to have a dog, found him at the shelter. To tell you the truth, I wanted to adopt all the dogs there and run a “Dog Ranch” and make them do whatever they want to do. But I guess it is not the time yet; I am willing to do so in the near future. My dog which is a mixed breed, seems like to grow big, because he looks like it I named him Bear. He is very good that I want to be around all the time, and I want to take him with me anywhere. I grew up with dogs with my family, there is always dog in my life. If I re born and become an animal I definitely choose to be a dog. They would do nothing much but eat and go for a walk; and the rest would be either watching TV or taking nap. There are not much difference with my life anyways. I am not too much favor of dog food, but I would be happy with sandwich from the In’n Out every day. I became friend to an elephant since I worked with her in “Water For Elephants”. I’ve learned that not too much hugging or petting needed to get around with the wild animals. We treat them as a part of the family, but you never know they would think about you in return. Like, if you are around with a huge elephant, you need caution, if she miss stepped on you that’s it. You have to still very cautious being around with the trained animals.”...
Rob:...“Me and my friends did a road trip around the States, it was interesting; people are different in each state. There were even a place with no phones. It was fun, many people didn’t even recognize me. When I go back in England, people notice me and look down to pretend I’m not there. Some tourists notice me.”
