Today is Mother's Day and I feel like no one deserves happy wishes more than our Rosie Posie Pudding Pie. Forgive me for humanizing this experience but.....
In the last 3 1/2 months Rosie.......
...was bread for the first time, an experience that left her traumatized and physically ill.
...carried a litter of 8 pups with a spring in her gait and a ball in her mouth.
...delivered smoothly, quickly, and with only one yelp (during daylight hours and not until Aimee was in the house).
...immediately loved and cared for her babies.
...loved and cared for even a sick baby.
...developed painful mastitis and continued to nurse her pups.
...snuggled her sick baby until the time came.
...alerted her people to impending disaster.
...'s mastitis developed into a severe case, she had surgery and despite drains and stitches STILL continued to nurse those voracious pups without complaint.
...welcomes strangers into the house to love and snuggle her babies, she shows them off with pride.
...continues to be the sweetest, four pawed girl I know.
Happy Mother's Day Rosie, because of you, 7 more people are going to gain their independence.
Rosie, YOU ROCK!!! And you are loved!!!!
