No, really. It is. According to my National Day calendar, it’s a good day for extra hugs, special food, and maybe a nice picture or two.
NATIONAL DOG MOMS DAY
During the second Saturday in May, National Dog Mom’s Day sends out a chorus of yips, barks, and howls of praise for all the dog mommas!
Our dogs are our family members, whether they came into our lives unexpectedly or as carefully planned additions. We adopt them as puppies, adolescents, or fully mature animals with a bit of baggage, and yet, we find common ground, a connection, and bond like families do. They know our moods, and we know theirs. We care for them, shelter them, and share an immeasurable loyalty with them.
National Dog Mom’s Day recognizes the bond women share with their fur kids. When they humor us, charm us or even when they are naughty, they are like any other child to us. HOW TO OBSERVE #DogMomsDay
I don’t actually think the Duke could be better fed. We stopped buying dog food and I cook the same chopped beef for him that we eat for our diinner. I add some veggies — baby carrots and green beans. No onions, garlic. No sugar. A tiny bit of salt. Mixed with high quality kibble. Treats early in the morning and evening because, well, you know, he needs treats. Needs them. I know this because he told me.
So tomorrow is his special day. Is buying him special tick and flea protection enough?
