Pets are a big part of the family. I know that are beloved golden retriever Lucy sure is! If only I could stop her shedding! Most kids love to talk about their pets and tell you all about them. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has assumed that the pet was a human member of the family until I later found out! That’s just how much they can be loved by kids…and adults. Pets come in all shapes and sorts which makes them perfect for pet themed yoga!
