5 Favorite Kid~Friendly Doggies
Dogs are great companions to have in your family. Kids of course just love dogs, and most dogs love kids. I know we seemed to always have dogs in my family when i was growing up, and my wife did in her family as well. Now we are carrying on that tradition and have had dogs as part of our family for many years now. Having a dog in the family helps to teach your kids responsibility, and gives them a great playmate to have fun with. Make sure you pick out a family friendly dog that best fits your situation, based on your living arrangement and the ages of your kids.
