Thanking The Moms

Since it’s Mother’s Day and I don’t really have anyone special to thank, I began thinking of my canine family, and decided that I’d like to take a moment and thank their moms for bringing each of them into the world.

Phoenix’s foster family was unsure of who his dam was, but thought they remembered the name Willy. As I’ve written over and over on this blog, Phoenix has been an important part of my life and every day I’m thankful to have him.

I’m not sure if Willy was her name, but whoever the wonderful mom was who brought Phoenix into the world, thank you!

Next I’d like to thank Ivy for blessing us with Aspen. I met Ivy when I went to pick out our little girl at 5 weeks of age. She’s a small, light colour golden, with a soft feathery coat like her daughter. She had a rough time with Aspen’s litter, so was spayed after her puppies were in their new homes and adopted by a loving family, not far from her breeder. I haven’t had a chance to see Ivy since picking Aspen up, but from our brief interactions and through talking to Doris (breeder), Aspen inherited many of her looks and personality from her mom.

Thank you Ivy for bringing Aspen into the world, she has provided us with memories that will last a lifetime.

Cessna’s dam is Belle. I got to meet Belle a few years after Cessna and I were matched. We spent a couple of hours with her and her foster mom, so were amazed to see how similar her and Cessna really are. Belle is a little bigger than Cessna, but the differences end there. They chased squirrels together, barked at the neighbour’s dog in unison and exhibited many of the same manor isms. Cessna has taught us more than we could have ever imagined and continues to bring joy to our lives.

Thank you Belle for blessing us with Cessna, I owe you the world.

Finally, I’d like to thank Goldie for entrusting us with Canyon. Sadly, Goldie passed away a few months after we picked him up. We never really got a chance to meet Goldie, but are sure that she passed on many traits to her son. I’m not sure if it’s his puppy looks, his cuddly personality or his sunny disposition, but I can’t get enough of this boy!!

Thank you Goldie for bringing Canyon into the world. He continues to bring a smile to our faces every moment of the day.

I don’t think many people think about the moms who give life to our furry friends, but without them, our lives would be much different.
