Today we’re wishing an early Mother’s Day to all the moms out there and especially to the moms whose kids have paws!
We know they may not always tell you but the dogs and cats and other animals that you walk, feed, and care for in so many way, love you to the moon and back.
Though the namesakes of our pen name, Sparkle (ML’s cat) and Abby (Anita’s dog), are now gone, they were such a big part of our lives. We miss them every day. (Please don’t get us started or we’ll have to tell you the story of how with the help of the lovely Catriona McPherson, we left a whole panel, and most of the audience, in tears at a conference a few years ago…)
However, we also want to share that we do have some other furry rescue pets in our lives now. Zoey (ML’s cat) and Sophie (Anita’s dog) have their own unique and very definite personalities. And, in fact, they had a little get-to-know-you meeting on the deck last week.
Here’s the thing. We can’t imagine our lives without our pets. And we’ll bet that your pets can’t imagine their lives without you. So, let us speak for them and with a “woof” and a “meow” wish you an early happy Mother’s Day!
We’d love to hear about your furry kids!
Please feel free to share in the comments.
