Other than the birthing part, they’re essentially the same, right?

Mother’s Day is coming up, and families are all ready to celebrate in their own way. It wouldn’t be a surprise if school kids brought some kind of flower-related DIY gifts home for their mothers and other special individuals in their lives. But what about dog moms? They do the same things with their pups that moms do with their human babies, minus the birthing and nursing part. No matter what DNA or biology says, they are moms, too!
So, dog moms, are you and your fur baby doing anything special for Mother’s Day?

Some dog moms know the exact breed they’re going to have before the puppies are even born! They can hardly wait until their puppy is weaned off their dog mommy and ready to be taken home. Just like human parents, pet parents tend to their puppy’s every need, making sure they’re fed, comfortable, and ridiculously loved!

A puppy picture posting frenzy! Like human moms and their new bundles, dog mommas take photos, photos, and even more photos of their pups to post on every social media platform you can think of. You bet that Facebook is flooded with puppy photos! And if your profile picture or cover photo isn’t of your puppy, do you even have a dog?
Like any human moms, doggy moms are always hugging their fur babies!

This Retriever likes to remind his mom that he will always be her first baby and will always deserve a spot on her lap for cuddles. Without a doubt, mom hugs are the best hugs!
