Happy Mother’s Day!

How’s your Sunday treating you? Mellan (for all intents and purposes, my kid!) & I would like to wish all of our lovely moms the very best, most relaxing Sunday of the year!

Both photos above are from when Mellan was just a wee puppy (he’s almost two and half years old now), and he always was a sweetheart.  A nagging, pleading, begging-with-those-eyes kind of sweetheart, that is!   The mini-photo set inside the larger photo has always been one of my favorites, because the dog loves to put anything in his mouth, including himself.  He won’t hold anything for long, but if you give it to him, he’ll mouth it up.  Such is life with a little lab!

I made sure to get all of my homework and studying done on Friday and Saturday, so I could spend Sunday hanging out with my Mom.  (Though, to be honest, I think she’s more excited to see her Mellan than me!)  I love my Mom more than I could ever say.  She is a such an enormous part of my support system.  She’s always there for me, and I can talk to her about anything.  Every year, I appreciate my Mom (and my Dad) more and more–for all their sacrifices and the challenges they had to endure from us kids.  Love you Mom!

Feel free to comment wishing or telling your Mom why she’s so amazing (or why being a mother is so amazing–even if you just have fur-babies)! :)

    Happy Mother’s day to all!

    Mellan is such a cute “kid.” :) Happy mum’s day Christine!

    This is my kid (my little kitty ziggy) … But he has a lot of parents at my house lol

  2. Awww! My baby Blake (Half Lab half Retriever) is that size now! my lovely little boy is 13 weeks old tomorrow. He was born to be a guide dog, and I’m dreading saying goodbye! he’s just finished inhaling his dinner is that something your mellan does? rather than eat his food he just sucks it up like a vacuum?

    For us the in the UK this is just an average Sunday since mothers day was in March but I hope you’re all having a lovely mothers day, here in north of England the sun has decide to shine even though it’s a bit breezy and cold.

    • Aww, you have such a brave soul, Simone! I don’t know if I could do that – give him up!

      Mellan eats pretty fast, not quite like a vacuum, but near it! He only gets about 2/3 cup of food per meal (he gets breakfast & dinner), so it doesn’t last long!

      • I don’t know how I’m going to do it but we do have another dog so it wont be like a total hole but it will be very different, we knew from the start that we’d have to say goodbye but he is going to be somewhere he will be loved an amazing amount because he’s going to be somebody’s eyes and be a bit of support since he’s a very loving little guy, so I suppose it’s worth it, and we will get another puppy after Blake’s trainings done and we get to do it all over again!
        Blake gets 70g of food 4 times a day since he’s only a baby and it’s gone it under a minute! he’s a food orientated boy if I’ve ever met one.
        I’m also loving the superglass combo’s but I’m super happy they’ve not hit the UK yet because my purse is recovering from my PaP and Too The Beach Hauls!

        • So many labs are food-driven, I swear!! :)

          But really, you are amazing for taking him in knowing you will have to give him up, even if for a great cause!

    Sadly, I never had the opportunity to be a mom, in spite of being married twice & now, at 48 I don’t think it’s in the cards for me :( I was, however, a Mom to two fur babies, but they both died last year. One of them was 12, the other 20! I miss them dearly. I used to cry on Mother’s Day, but I got over that a few years back!

    Happy Mothers Day to all and thanks for the great pictures of Mellan!

    • Being a mom to fur-babies counts, Wendy!! :) I’m sorry to hear about their passing, but I bet you gave them the most amazing lives!

    such a pretty boy and he loves his mama, you can tell

    did his nose stay black???? my guy’s turned pink after about a yr (he’s 3)

  10. Awwww, Happy Mothers Day!!! My mother is a soldier and I love her more than anything!!!

    I became a mother just on Friday, picked up a 6.5 week old Pomeranian and he didn’t let me sleep! I slept 1 hour Friday night!!! Husband has pink eye and a bad flu, so I’m on a 24/7 nursing shift with no sleep =/ But it’s all worth it :)

    I’ve had the best Mother’s Day in years. I got some lovely gifts but best of all my 2 teens ( boy 18, girl 15) spent the day with me indulging me with fun and conversation instead of running around with their friends. This was the best gift ever! I know they won’t be around here much longer. :(

    Not that Mellan is not cute now.. but don’t you wish they would stay that little??? He’s the most adorable puppy!! Happy Mother’s Day Christine! Mellan is lucky to have you as a mommy :)
