Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother's Day Dog
This mother dog is too busy to wish you a happy day, but her puppies want everyone to be happy! Except maybe her. They’re too busy bugging her to notice her.

In celebration of Mother’s Day, we bring you two stories about mothers — one about a cat and one about a dog.  They both undergo journeys — losing control of their lives both to their human masters and to the love they feel for their new little ones.

Happy Mother's Day Cat
Cats don’t wish people a happy day. Have a happy day or not. That’s up to you. This mother cat would like to be left out of it.

Motherhood is about loss of control — swinging between huge joy and crushing despair while forgetting who you are, because you’re just too tired.

But it’s also about kittens and puppies.  And kittens and puppies are wonderful.  So, read Magtwilla and the Mouse and The Best Puppy Ever, and be glad for your children or glad that you don’t have children or glad that your children will grow up and go away soon.  Or don’t be glad if you don’t feel like it.
