Who says Mother’s Day is a holiday only for mothers with human children? Dog moms need some Mother’s Day love and attention too!
Dogs know their owners work hard for them — from committing to daily walks in sometimes inclement weather, to tuning out their enthusiastic barking at every passerby, to showing their love and adoration, to thank you for being such a great mom:
You walk your dog in the wind, rain, and snow. He knows his walks are hard on your feet and that afterward you need some special pampering for your tootsies. Let him outfit you with some new supplies for the perfect do-it-yourself pedicure. You might also remind him that summer is approaching, so it’s a good time for a self-tanning lotion that you can apply after you have beautified your legs and feet.
Your dog knows you like flowers, especially all the fresh new spring blooms starting to blossom. The Follow Your Heart gift basket includes flowers, decadent chocolate, and of course, a plush puppy to remind you of his love all year long.
Dogs see how much you like to vacuum; you seem to be doing it daily. So for Mother’s Day, your dog wants you to have the very best vacuum that can handle all the hair he shakes off just for you. Not all vacuums can take the fur, so your pup will pick from some of the top-rated models for 2015.
Hiring a poop-scooping service
Your dog will search online for a local pet-scooping service in your area. There are even national franchises if local services aren’t available in your area. Many service providers offer scoop service with no contract making it easy to have a mess-free yard with no commitment.
Fido will be happy with his regularly clean yard to do his business, and you’ll be relieved you never have to worry about stepping in any “surprises.”
Don’t want to hire a service? Stock up on supplies and do it yourself.
Books and relaxation
Furry companions know you sometimes need a little downtime too, especially when you can do it during his afternoon nap. For a low annual fee and no contracts at all, Fido can sign you up for a paperback trade service where you pay the postage to mail requested books to their new owners while books you request come to you for free. Or, if you prefer reading on your tablet, Nook, or Kindle, doggie would like you to have all of your favorite magazines in one app at your fingertips. Or you can read dog books so you can become an even better dog mom.
And he won’t forget the card
Since he can’t drive to the store, Fido wants to send you a personalized Mother’s Day e-card. In the card, he will thank you for all the dog bones and treats, the table scraps you dropped out of the goodness of your heart, and for buying him the cat that he enjoys chasing up and down the stairs. He’ll say: “You’re a great dog-Mom, let’s go for a walk! Can we? Can we?”
