We have two pets, one species. Dogs...and believe me, two puppies, that are bigger than most dogs at 10 weeks and on their way to 70 pounds, is no small feet!
I'm a reptile fan so either Bearded Dragons or Leopard Geckos top my list.
For me dog is the best pet to have at home. Dog is man's bestfriend.
Dogs make the best pets for children. You should however be selective on the breed that you want to adopt since they have different characters. You should consider dogs that are good with children like the Labs.
Hello Margarita, These are the most friendly Dogs to have around children:
This little wrinkly cutie is friendly, loyal, and docile, so it's okay if baby pokes him a little -- he isn't likely to snap.
The beautiful pups are quiet and affectionate and they do lots of tricks. Plus they are very protective.
3. Golden Retriever
These sweetie pies are also really smart, but they need lots of exercise so they are great for the active family.
4. Bull Terrier
This is a great breed for rough and tumble kind of kids -- they are friendly and tend to be unfazed by a child tugging on their hair.
They may be big, but the Newfoundland are very gentle, kind creatures who are very protective and easy to train
Fish - a weekly responsibility of tank maintenance at best and no messes on the floor to clean up. The kids seem to be easily fascinated by the aquatic life.
A dog that is very family oriented. I think golden retrievers make the best pet for a child. They are really docile.
Also some smaller dogs... getting one from a puppy and having it grow up with the child is always your best bet! They bond and become best of friends.
I have heard many times that a large dog is better to have with children than a small one. Our son had 2 bull mastiffs and they were so gentle with their kids. They could lay all over them and they didn't flinch. Sometimes a small dog can be a little snippy.
I believe a cat is the most friendly animal to have for a child. My granddaughter has lived the first year of her life with four cats in a big house and she loves them. In fact "cat" is one of her first words. They're just so cuddly. Even little kids can see that. You just trim their nails and keep them clean and they're great.

Have you ever found a lost animal? What did you do?Hubby and found this soaking wet lost kitten while on our walk today.We thought he might have been hurt -- just cowering in a puddle in the middle of a parking lot next to a busy street. He had a collar with a bell. But no ID tag. Seemed awfully...
