Furkids from the past, still sit in my heart. Mother's Day bring lots of memories with it
I put a stuffed rabbit on the counter with a few other things. I was at HomeGoods; one of my favorite places to shop. The cashier smiled when she picked up the big grey rabbit to scan. "So cute," she said to me. "Can't forget my girl," I told her. We then got into a long discussion about how many toys our dogs have. Comparing her bags of toys with my baskets full; we both smiled and agreed that they are indeed our furkids.
For some people out there, their dog is just a dog. But for many, and I'm assuming those of you reading this; your dog is your furkid. Included as one of the family; encircled with the love, caring and safety net that goes out and covers your family.
Dogs are not humans. They need different things than we do to be happy; and I do not like when people treat dogs as furry humans. They are so much more. Dogs are an amazing species that has adapted to life with humans. They do a spectacular job and learning the ropes of how to live by our side. A dog gives us their all; and in turn we should give them what a dog needs.
To truly know your dog you must fully understand the differences between our species.
On this Mother's Day weekend I want to wish all of you amazing Dog Moms out there a very happy Mother's Day. Being a Mother means to care for, love and keep safe; it's what we do to whomever comes into our care. That includes our furkids. No matter how big, small, furry or hairless; they are all our furkids.
So, Happy Fur Mother's Day to you all. Life is just better with a furkid in it. :)
