What kind of animal do you have?

Are your kids good with your animal??

We have 3 dogs: Chihuahua, Cocker Spanial/Havanesse and a Husky/Shepherd/Rott mix and the kids love them. The 3yr old loves to carry around the Chihuahua, probably because he is the only one she can carry.

  • I have 2 weenie dogs, and yes my kids are good with them. my teenage daughter likes to dress the one in baby clothes and carry her around in a baby basket... the dog believes she's a baby? The other one is a cat/ squirrel chaser! ;)

  • I have two dogs and a turtle. I have an almost 15-year-old Boston Terrier named Jasmine and a 6-month-old Boxer/Shar-Pei mix named Tess. I also have an almost 4-year-old African Spur-Thigh Tortoise named Topher.

    My DD, who will be 3 in August, is WONDERFUL with all of our animals. When we first introduced her to Topher, she was a little scared of him, but after she realized that he can't harm her she loved to pet him and feed him. Our dogs just love her to bits! They lay on top of each other and play together, it's adorable.

  • We have two medium sized dogs and a goldfish. All of the kids are great with them. Well, most of the time. My 9 year old son sometimes needs reminded that the dogs are not his wrestling buddies and my three year old that the dogs do not want to stand on their back legs and dance with her like a princess. LOL

  • Right now we have two guinea pigs, Linney and Sundae. And our three kids (9 years, almost 7 years, and 4.5 years) are very good with them. We are trying to talk dh into getting a cat as well, but he is not an animal guy so it will take some time!

  • Oh, I forgot to add that my kids are all great with the animals, with the occasional reminder to my 2 year old, of course, since he's still little.
