You Are NOT A Mom, Today is NOT Your Day!

I am so sick of seeing people wish "fur moms" a happy mother's day. Seriously? Just because you take care of a dog does not mean you earned the right to celebrate today. Yes, my pets are family, and I refer to them as my kids, and I their mom, but no, a pet mom does not deserve mother's day gifts and cards. They are taking away from the sanctity of the day, and being inconsiderate of those women who are real moms, who have children of their own (either by birth, adoption, or very invovled step-parent)

Rant over.

I'm still a mom, same rules still apply to me, by wishing someone with a dog happy Mother's Day it's taking absolutely nothing from me. I don't see why anyone else would think otherwise.

Well, I would think there would be an exception for people who are sterile so they make their pets their babies. Other than that, yeah, kind of weird.

If the wind will not serve, take to the oars.

It's no big deal.

If that's all that you have to bother you, you're doing great!

nd I was irritated earlier when I saw someone wish single Dad's a Happy Mother's Day.  That's even MORE ridiculous to do it for fur Mom's.  UGH

It's Mother's Day people!  For Mother's of human kids, not fur babies and not dads.  Dads get their own day next month and honestly, pets are usually a lot easier to care for.
