Before I was a dog mom

Before I was a Dog Mom: I made and ate hot meals unmolested; I had unstained, unfurred clothes; I had quiet conversations on the phone, even if the doorbell rang.

Before I was a Dog Mom: I slept as late as I wanted and never worried about how late I got to bed . . . or if I could get into my bed.

Before I was a Dog Mom: I cleaned my house everyday, I never tripped over toys, stuffies, chewies, or invited the neighbor’s dog over to play.

Before I was a Dog Mom: I didn’t worry if my plants, cleansers, plastic bags, toilet paper, soap or deodorant were poisonous or dangerous.

Before I was a Dog Mom: I had never been peed on, pooped on, drooled on, chewed on, or pinched by puppy teeth.

Before I was a Dog Mom: I had complete control of my thoughts, my body and my mind. I slept all night without sharing the covers or pillow.

Before I was a Dog Mom: I never looked into big, soulful eyes and cried. I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn’t stop a hurt. I never knew something so furry and four-legged could affect my heart so deeply.

Before I was a Dog Mom: I had never held a sleeping puppy just because I couldn’t put it down. I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was well. I didn’t know how warm it feels inside to feed a hungry puppy. I didn’t know that something so small could make me feel so important.

Before I was a Dog Mom: I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment, or the satisfaction of being

  1. Your story makes me cry….it’s so touching and true. I could see how much you love your fur kids as I do. If I could without more tears ad….Before I was a Dog Mom how bad I hurt from losing one of my fur kids. He was only 1 and I have is 5 year old sister. I took care of him in every way humanly possible except to have him close to me. He lived with my cousins and they loved him they just didn’t have the patience for him to train him not to pull and to walk nicely on a leash. He was out on a night walk and something scared him and he pull away and took off running into the street and the person never stopped. It was two years ago and it still breaks my heart thinking about it. I was 2hrs away when they called me to say that he passed away, I screamed out so loud and broke into a million pieces and Golden Girl his big sister weighing all of 65lbs tried to crawl up into my lap as to comfort me. She then came up into my face and got up in put herself in my arms and put her head on my shoulders as I was covering my face trying to muzzle my screams she took her pawl and pulled at my hands so that I could put my arms around her so she could comfort me. She stood on her back too legs until I pulled myself together. My big girl is my life. She and her brother “Pepsi: are pit bull mixes and he was a big baby…I missed him like crazy.
