Today is Mother's Day and we're enjoying our day like many. Our family includes a dog rather than a child but the sentiment is the same. I know she is grateful and would do whatever she could to make me happy, in her own dog way.
Her efforts within our family are always appreciated, even if they do not include making me a card or paper-mache flower vase or shellacked wooden picture frame. Today, like everyday, I will accept her tuna and liver breath kiss with a smile. We will cuddle and play chase in the house. Her image is already engraved on my heart and behind my eyelids, those are gifts this dog mother doesn't need wrapped or hung on a chain.
