Following our last post on #DogMoms, we’ve asked you for your opinion: What does being a #DogMom mean to you..
Here are some of your answers!!
Stacy Johnson White “What being a #DogMom means to me.. It is having unconditional love from my dogs. Knowing they are at home waiting for me after a long day definitely brings me joy. I love to see their excitement when I walk in the door. We both rely on each other. I give them shelter, food, water, hugs & kisses. They give it right back. Don’t know what I’d do without them Buddy & Monkey”
Kathy Gandoza “I love my baby boy Gizmo! He may be 19 years old.. but he will always be a baby to me”
Kim Smoot “Being a #petmom to my furbabies is so completely satisfying. The amount of love they give you in return is ten-fold. They live their life for you, to make you laugh, to comfort you, to keep you getting up every morning when things are tuff. Don’t call my furbabies “dogs”, they are loving, concerned, grateful living beings and deserve to be treated with kindness and love.”
Cheryl Cheney “My little monsters (3 min pins) are the only children I will ever have. I am lucky that they have chosen to add me to their pack. I would (and I know someday most likely will) be utterly devastated to lose them. But they make every day that I have with them totally worth living”.
Manu Manny “It means that no matter how bad or stressful my day has been,I know that when I get home there will be a wagging tail and a wet nose to welcome me and I will be able to hear that thumping sound of the little tail against the front door as soon as I get out of my car!”
Karen Hickey “Being able to give and receive unconditional love, watching my girls interact with one another and live in the moment (we could all take lessons from our pups!), playing ball at home our in the park, walks at the Marina. There are countless things that make me love being a dog mom!”
Nancy Sundberg Abramovitz “Being a dog mom means giving all of the love and care you can muster to your four legged fur kids. It means feeding the right kind of food for their systems, and giving wholesome treats in exchange for good behavior. It means picking up poops to keep their yard clean to play in, and cleaning their butts when they have problems. It means regular Vet check ups and appropriate medication. It means paying attention to their needs, their wants, their health changes, and understanding their language. It means not stressing them out by leaving them alone too long. It means grooming and petting and belly rubs just because. It means walks and play time, and lots of attention. It means giving them as much love as they give you. My dogs meant everything to me. This is my first Mother’s Day without them in 14 years. I’m sad, but so thankful for 14 wonderful, love filled years. Weber and Wabash are Old English Sheepdog angels watching over us now. XOXO”
