5. ...and you stayed late after class just to watch the tadpoles turn into frogs.

6. You went through a phase where you would only read books about dolphins when you were nine.

7. Your first "job" was a volunteer at an animal shelter.

8. You longingly day-dreamed about what it would be like to hang out with penguins all day.

9. All you wished for when you blew out your birthday candles was a puppy, a kitten, or both.

10. You had a countdown calendar and COULDN'T WAIT for the best day of the school year — a field trip to the aquarium, zoo, or farm.

11. You rescue any injured animal you come across and compassionately nurse them back to health.
