The Merry Month of May

Ahhh! The month of May has arrived. In many countries around the world May Day is celebrated as a festival marking the change in seasons. Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May when flowers are in bloom. It is a special time to honor mothers as well as grandmothers and “other mothers” and to show appreciation for their love and caring.

What Is A Mother?

A Mother is the tender touch that soothes our little aches
The patient way that overlooks our mischief and mistakes
The smiling face that shares our joys and triumphs of the day
The helping hand that reaches out when trouble comes our way
A Mother is the warm embrace the love that knows no end--
The one who proves from day to day to be our dearest Friend!

For those moms and dads to furbabies the responsibilities of caring include being teacher, chef, nurse, driver and friend. Sometimes the simple tasks that we undertake in our every day life can prove to be somewhat challenging. Here is an example of what I mean…

How To Photograph A New Puppy

1. Remove film from box and load camera
2. Remove film box from puppy's mouth and throw in trash
3. Remove puppy from trash and brush coffee grounds from muzzle
4. Choose a suitable background for photo
5. Mount camera on tripod and focus
6. Find puppy and take dirty sock from mouth
7. Place puppy in pre-focused spot and return to camera
8. Forget about spot and crawl after puppy on knees
9. Focus with one hand and fend off puppy with other hand
10. Get tissue and clean nose print from lens
11. Take flash cube from puppy's mouth and throw in trash
12. Put cat outside and put peroxide on the scratch on puppy's nose
13. Put magazines back on coffee table
14. Try to get puppy's attention by squeaking toy over your head
15. Replace your glasses and check camera for damage
16. Jump up in time to grab puppy by scruff of neck and say- "No, outside! No, outside!!"
17. Call spouse to clean up mess
18. Fix a drink
19. Sit back in Lazy Boy with drink and resolve to teach puppy "sit" and "stay" the first thing in the morning

And just where is the best seat in the house?

Mom's lap, of course!

As with parenting children, being caretakers of our pets can sometimes be frustrating to say the least. Please, ALWAYS treat your pets with kindness. Use positive reimforcements when training or correcting behavior, and never strike your little ones. When you reach to touch your pets they should never have to wonder if your approaching hand is a good thing or something to be feared. Treat your pets with love, and they will know they can always trust you.

For all of you who are lucky enough to still have your mom with you, brighten her day by showing her how much you love and appreciate her. It will mean so much to her to know that you care.

A white rose for my mother.
I love you and miss you.
