We are a family who loves animals and we are members of the Litchfield County 4-H Club. We have been known to have had or still have cows, pigs, chickens, goats, rabbits, dogs and a turtle at our house. I find that by having different animals around the children that they learn not to be afraid of them and to respect them. The children have the opportunity to pet, help feed and play with the animals if they choose to and they are always safe when they do. At this time we do have dogs that love the kids!
