Happy Mother's Day!

To all the Moms around the world!


My mom found this poem...

Before I Was A Dog Mom
by Carol Wat

Before I was a Dog Mom:

I made and ate hot meals unmolested.
I had unstained, unfurred clothes.
I had quiet conversations on the phone, even if the doorbell rang.

Before I was a Dog Mom:

I slept as late as I wanted and never worried about how late I got to bed or if I could get into my bed.

Before I was a Dog Mom:

I cleaned my house every day.
I never tripped over toys, stuffies, chewies or invited the neighbor's dog over to play.

Before I was a Dog Mom:

I didn't worry if my plants, cleansers, plastic bags, toilet paper, soap or deodorant were poisonous or dangerous.

Before I was a Dog Mom:

I had never been peed on pooped on drooled on chewed on or pinched by puppy teeth.

Before I was a Dog Mom:

I had complete control of my thoughts, my body and mind.
I slept all night without sharing the covers or pillow.

Before I was a Dog Mom:

I never looked into big, soulful eyes and cried.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop a hurt.
I never knew something so furry and four-legged could affect my heart so deeply.

Before I was a Dog Mom:

I had never held a sleeping puppy just because I couldn't put it down.
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was well.
I didn't know how warm it feels inside to feed a hungry puppy.
I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important.

Before I was a Dog Mom:

I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment or the satisfaction of being
A Dog Mom.


Have a great day!

Lorenza! Do you remember us? The long neglected (not really) long absent (yes, really) wire fox terriers in Colorado? WE HOPE you remember us!

We want to say: Your moma and your gramma are BEAUTIFUL! No wonder you are such a beautiful girl!

We think of you all the time. Every time we see a Lorenza dog, we wish it was you. And guess what we saw the other day? Some dachshund FABRIC! Cotton prints. Very cute, in our opinion. It's not all the feminine, but it's very cute. Would you like some? We'd be happy to get you some and send it. Tell us how much you need to make a pretty dress. If you'd want a dress of colorful doggies. Or a scarf. Or a bag. Or whatever.

Email us. OK?

Love from your Colorado friends
Jake and Fergi xxoo

Lorenza, Lorenza! Hi! It's Mayzie agains. I just had to tell you about something that happened tonite. My mom was watching the Pawdance videos and your video came on. Now, mom and dad have tried to gets me to howl before and I've heard dogs in our neighborhood howl before but as soon as I heard your Most Lovely voice, I felt the needs to sing right along with you! And I howled and sang and Brudder Ranger howled and sang and then mom joined in and we all had the bestest time!
