Mother’s Day

Posted on

     There’s more to being a mother than just giving birth. A mother (to me anyway) is someone who raises another with love, kindness, care, respect and all those other things that the good moms do. I don’t have any children of the human variety but I consider all the animals I’ve raised (Not for food!!!) my children. And now I’m raising my dog. I make sure he’s happy (lots of walks & toys), healthy (trips to the vet, too many according to him), clothed (although the only item he will tolerate is a raincoat because he hates to get wet) and well fed (the best quality dog food with garnishes of peanut butter, cheese and chick peas…yes chick peas, I’ve yet to meet a dog that doesn’t like chick peas). I do the best I can because I love him, and I did the best I could with all the rest of my “children”.

     So if you are someone who does the best that you can do to raise another (human or otherwise) then have a wonderful Mother’s Day.

  2. He is such a handsome boy and mom is not too bad herself. I can see where he gets his cuteness. Sorry for the late Happy mom’s day.
