We may not have to pay for college educations or braces, but we do watch our wallets grow thin as we partake in puppy training classes and vet bills. We dress them, buy them the healthiest food and make sure they smell pretty. We don't handle dirty diapers but we do dispose of potty pads and pick up their poop in plastic bags. We clean up their puke when they get sick. We love them as if they came from our womb.
This is to you, my fellow dog moms. May your Mother's Day be filled with slobbery kisses, muddy paws and fur-covered clothes.
