Happy Mother's Day

Even though I am only mother to Connor-pup, all of the older men and women in my neighbourhood wish me a Happy Mother's Day, probably thinking that I should have children by now!

My mother's been amazing since my father died two years ago. She's taking college classes, playing bridge with old and new friends, gardening and doing a lot of socializing. I am so proud of her and love her so much.
Happy Mother's Day, Mom!


  1. Let me join with your neighbours and wish you a happy (mother's)day also.


    PS Love the blog

  2. Have you read "The Art of Racing in the Rain?" It's written by a dog and one of the most wonderful parts is his great lament he cannot speak. I'm sure Connor would speak loudly to wish you a Happy Mother's Day if he only could. Love the new header.

  3. happy mother's day! you know i think furkids are just as good as the real thing, so yes, this is *your* mother's day too.

    enjoy the day with connor and your mother (i love that she's taking college classes- good for her!).

  4. Happy Mother's Day!

  5. I love the picture of your mother. She's beautiful and it's good she's finding things to fill the massive hole left by your father. I like the sound of him too! Great to see he served in the Royal Navy in the war and was basically a Brit! I have strong associations with our navy myself..

  6. Your parents both look so cute! And, like you, my kids are all furry!


  7. Happy Mother's Day to you!
    Your mother is beautiful. I bet it warms your heart seeing your parents, looking like movie stars!

  8. What a wonderful tribute to both your mother and your father. You've selected a wonderful, warm picture of the two of them.

    Happy Mother's Day to you, too!!

  9. * I love that glorious, happy pic of BOTH your darling, beloved folks~ your Mom sounds incredible, so I know your wonderful Dad must have been too, without a doubt!!!
