Mamas come in all different forms. Dog mamas are especially close to my heart! :) They're super special because their furbabies can't verbally tell them what they need so the bond is formed through intuition, compassion and patience. It takes work, continuous work, just like it does to mother a human baby. The worry is still the same when you're away from them. You still leave detailed instructions with the babysitter when you have to go out of town. You still make sacrifices and get stepped on, peed on and sometimes step in their puke and poop.
You don't have to be a human baby mama to be a Mother. :)
