OUR FAMILY PET IS A CHILD FRIENDLY SMALL HYPOALLERGENIC DOG NAMED ROXY [bichon x yorkie], WHO ADORES HER DAYCARE PALS, pictures of her are in the Gallery. She barks at new people because she thinks she is a guard dog to all the kids!
My daughters also have a pet teddy bear hamster named Bubbles who doesn't come out during care hours without my direct supervision.
