Happy National Pet Week, everybody! As the creators of coloring pages, science fair projects, and activities that revolve around animals of all kinds, we’re pretty big fans of pets over here at Education.com. Over the years, we’ve discovered that our freelance photographers aren’t just talented artists—they own some of the cutest animals we’ve ever seen. Below, we’ve listed three of the stars of our activity and science fair sections. Meet three of our favorite furry, fuzzy mascots of Education.com.

I live in: San Jose, California
My favorite food is: Anything that Mommy or Daddy is eating.
How I found my family: I was the only survivor of my litter. My dog mom was very shy so I didn’t get a lot of experience with other dogs. Luckily, my human parents were allowed to take me home one weekend and soon after were told they could keep me forever!
Hobbies and Interests: Playing with stuffed toys, fetching the ball and not giving it back, shredding paper towels, finding dust bunnies, digging in blankets, eating treats, and being a good girl!
