I love the variety of members who post on here. It's got me really wondering who is in your family??? Do many people have children (the two legged, furless variety)? Are your dogs pets or do they 'work' in some capacity?
I'll start things off.
I am married and have a son (4.5) and expecting our second son, a week ago!
Our family also includes Mandy (5.5) and a cat, Norman (7). We purchased Mandy as a family pet; she has also ended up being a casual therapy dog with me at work in a nursing home.

My family is just my almost 8 year old chocolate furbaby, Lexi, and I!
Sometimes the furbaby count grows by one, when we have a foster puppy in residence. We are between fosters presently due to my work/travel commitments.
My pretty girl, Lexi!
My family is me- I am a stay at home mom of Courtney who will be 5 in October
My husband Tim
Our three cats, Molly, Cali and Sookie
Our fish, Nemo
and our doggies, Skylar (pet) and Libby who is going to be going through therapy dog training as well as some modified assistance training to help me out around the house.

It's me and my wife of 23 years. We've got three two-legged kids, all girls (!). They are 18, 14, and 10.
Parker is our little boy (see Sig); he's just over 3 months old.
Back in Nov of 2010, we bade farewell to Wesley (see Avatar), our 10.5 y.o. Lab. He held and continues to hold a very special place in my heart, and although we are up to our elbows in the work associated with a new (and very loving) puppy, I do miss him.
Wes earned titles in rally and obed and a therapy dog designation, all goals I have in mind for Parker someday.

Family of 4 legged-Tank a 6 year old black lab. I was not ready for him I had just lost my other black lab Abby but due to his situation we said yes. Bentley 1 year old yellow lab. I was looking through the pounds for another dog and I came across Bentley on pefinder who was going to be put to sleep the next day so I or my dad I should say went and picked him up Mae came from my cousin and she was kept outside all day on a chain and not socialized the right way. Now she is dog aggressive but human friendly (working on the dog aggressive ness). I have 3 cats Dice,Yoda,and Thunder 3 rabbits Brownie,trigger,and Oreo. So all 3's!
I wanted to get Bentley into agility or something but don;t have the money for the training he needs and plus gas is to expensive. He is really good with the things I have set up in my back yard though.
~It doesn't matter how smart the dog is,it matters how smart the owner is.
No two leggers for me personally and don't intend to. But we help take care of my niece who is being raised alone (brother who is father is not active in her life). We love her so much it hurts!!
Here she is riding with Blair on the lawn tractor. She is making tractor noises and pretending she is driving LOL This was taken two days before fathers day. On fathers day her mother send Blair a "Happy Fathers Day" because he has been the stand in father figure in her life. I was moved to tears!!
