Naptime for the Whole Family
on their Birthday

Yes, this mom has 9 babies. When I ponder that possibility, it seems incomprehensible. I had my hands full with three kids; can you imagine dealing with 9?

A friend's friend sent these pictures along and I knew you guys would enjoy them. The essence of motherhood is the total giving of oneself to the good of the children. I think this mom has definitely done her part. Nursing her pups while standing could not have been fun, but she seems to be tolerating her hungry families' needs quite well in that top photo. Bravo for mom!

Feel free to leave your comments below celebrating motherhood or thanking your own mom. We all love a good sentimental thought!

In honor of Mother's Day, we're visiting a mom's blog hop. Enjoy a little bouncing and be sure to thank our hostess.

Happy Mother's Day! It's amazing to watch a dog with their pups...and moms with their children. One of those great wonders in life. I am blessed to have a wonderful daughter who makes me the mom I am, and a wonderful mom who was the best role model. And to my Sibes - to our alpha queen Harley who became an adoptive mom to the 3 pups so easily and naturally, one would think she was their real mom! Here's to all the moms - both canine and human - to have a wonderful day!

Wow, cute pix! That's a wonderful snuggled crowd of puppies! I agree that Mom's doing a great job with such a big pack.
Happy Mothers Day to all moms out there!
Grr and Woof,
