Because We Miss Her

ZoeyWe aren’t parents to humans, but we are and have been parents to animals, mostly dogs, cats and horses, along with a few wild adoptees. like bunnies, hawks and owls. I know it’s hard for some people to understand, but we don’t love our animals any less than parents of humans love their children. No, we don’t dress them up or expect them to be welcomed in restaurants or at the movies, but we do care for them as if they are our children. To us, they are. Anyway, Zoey was our girl and even though she has been gone for over a year, we still cry and laugh when we remember her. She is present and with us every day, and with this being Mom’s Day, I wanted to acknowledge us for being her parents. It wasn’t easy most of the time, Zoey had epilepsy and we battled that for over 10 years. In the end, it was cancer and we had to make the hardest decision of our lives.

Happy Mom’s Day to all of you moms, humans or otherwise.

    I love this picture of Zoey. She was a very photogenic girl, no? I love what you said about Mother’s Day and how we love our furry children as much if not more as their human counterparts. You rock!
