I remember receiving my first Mother’s Day flowers the year that Lola Pug was born. Mother’s Day arrived that year when The Pug was still with her pug mama, too young to be with me in her forever home, but that didn’t make the day any less special for me.
The thought of this little face, and thinking back to everything we’ve been through together over the past nine years makes every Mother’s Day special for me, even when they’ve been really tough to celebrate.
Here’s to as many more happy adventures and bright and sunny Mother’s Days as the Fates will allow us, baby girl….
And to all the loving Mums out there who have kids of all kinds, Happy Mother’s Day!
The children at Casa Lola all have four legs (if you aren’t counting the human who often acts like a child), and this Mother’s Day, I am very lucky to have the delightful Miss Merryweather staying with us.
Lola and Merry have known each other for about six years now, and they have always been buddies, due, in part, to Miss Merryweather’s unbelievably delightful personality (more on this in an upcoming post).
Unlike Nelly and Roxy, Merry is not *technically* family, but I have long maintained that family is who you choose it to be, and we overwhelmingly and most definitely choose Merry.
…even if we do have to share our beds with her when she comes to visit.
To all the mothers out there with two-legged, four-legged, three-legged!, winged, scaled or angel kids – Happy Mother’s Day.
