Happy Mother's Day

Happy Sunday to you all!!!:-D

As pups and kitties, we are all incredibly lucky to have such pawesome Mommas!! Moms that provide us with delicious treats, play thousands of games of ball with us, buy us warm and comfortable beds, dish us up lots of nummy foods, and give us never ending love!!

I hope that you all give your Moms lots of licks and love today...cause, at least today, she is Numero Uno!! ;-D

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY

Here's an excerpt from a post that Domeek loves...for all of you Dog Moms out there!! 


Here’s my opinion…
First of all, being a parent… doesn’t make you a person.
Being a person… makes you a person.
Not one human… is any more of a person… than any other person.

Further…
Conceiving a child doesn’t make you a mother.
Carrying a child doesn’t make you a mother.
Giving birth to a child doesn’t make you a mother.

Instead…
Loving, nurturing, raising, protecting, defending, teaching, guiding, caring, and providing for a “child”… every single day… no matter what…
That’s what makes you a mother.

Loving them so much… that you’re willing to place their needs well-above your own…
That’s what makes you a mother.

Loving them so unconditionally… that there’s simply nothing they could ever do to sway your devotion from them…
That’s what makes you a mother.

Doing all of these things… to the very best of your ability… even when you don’t have to…
That’s what makes you a mom.

I don’t care what anyone says…
Trust me…
I’m a mom.

Being a dog mom is different…
Mostly because… your kids never “grow up.”
They’ll always need you; they’ll always want you; they’ll always depend on you for everything they need… for as long as they’re here with you.

It’s also different, because many people don’t take you seriously.
It’s just a dog. A dog is not a “real child,” and you’re not a “real mom.”

Others are offended… that you’d even have the nerve to compare your dogs to children: “Dogs are dogs. They are not people, and they are certainly not children.”

That’s their opinion… but once again, I respectfully disagree.

Happy Mother’s Day, to all the dog (and cat) moms out there.
You’re a mother, too…
And no one can ever take that away from you.

“Never forget for a single minute… you didn’t grow under my heart… but in it.”

  5. Love this! Happy Mother's Day to you too. I so agree with this; many fellow bloggers are moms to their furbabies and it definitely counts-in fact, just look at the vet bills and you'll see.
    Hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day.
    Hugs, Noreen & Hunter

  7. Having kids who happen not to be human means we don't have to pay to send them to college!
