We apparently have our own Mother's Day

May 10, 2019

Happy National Dog Mom's Day (the second Saturday in May), and of course, Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms this Sunday.

My husband panicked a bit when I told him about National Dog Mom's Day, as, falling the day before Mother's Day, that gave him one less day to shop for the dogs’ usual Mother's Day gift(s) to me. I told him I was fine with either/or. 

(Yeah, we have champagne problems)

When I was growing up, there was no way a pet could be considered a “child” in any way. Animals were so much more dismissible in the house I grew up in. If a dog ran away or died, it was sad, but it didn't hold quite the impact of what such loss holds now. I love how far I have come.

I love even more how far we’ve come. We have a national holiday. It’s about time.
