Happy Mother's Day!


For all my readers that are Mom's or 'Moms to be' - Happy Mother's Day!!! Though my children are of the four-legged kind (dogs) I appreciate that special, beautiful and unique bond between mother and child. Surely I wouldn't be all that I am if not for my mother and my grandmother.

However, I want to send a shout out not only to biological mothers but mothers in which a child is born from the heart not the womb. When choosing to nurture, care and grow a deep bond for a child that was in need, you have committed an act of such great generosity, no words can fathom.

Check out Lilly, a black homeless dog. I was floored this sunday morning when watching Charles Osgood She is currently the mother of these ailing, hungry kittens.

And if that is not an amazing story enough for you see this AMAZING yet graphic video of a Leopard that goes upon its natural life - kills a baboon - but then discovers a day old baby in the baboons fur and instead of killing it (as she did the mother) she nurses the baby baboon!
So happy Mother's day!

I also watched the story of the dog nursing the cats, the cat nursing the fawn, the goat nursing the horse and the leopard nursing the baboon on Sunday Morning. If that was not the "perfect" mother's day installment that just goes to solidify that the nurturing instinct in all animals knows no boundaries.
