Why Fur Mum's Can Celebrate Mother's Day Too!

Updated: Jan 8, 2020

Mother's Day is of course a day to celebrate those in our life who are either our biological mother or, those who have been like mother figures to us. It is a day to celebrate your love for one another and a way to say 'thank you' for everything they have done for you and continue to do so.

For many including myself, we don't have a 'human child' yet, either through choice, timings not being quite right yet or sadly, not physically being able to.

This however does not make you any less of a woman or a 'mothering figure', as there are many different ways your love and kindness can be poured into other areas of life!

I for one currently count myself as a 'fur mum', to our beloved 3 year old dog 'King Louis', who is our baby. Now some people may laugh at that, roll their eyes, not quite understand..but it's how we feel about him. He's a member of the family after all!

Obviously I am fully aware that a 'fur baby' is a lot easier to raise and look after than a human child and I would never want anyone to think I thought otherwise, however, I am talking in the sense of a pet, be it of any kind, requires certain qualities and life essentials that a child does as well.

I can only really talk on behalf of owning a dog and not another animal but from the moment we brought Louis home as a 10 week pup, he required our fully undivided attention, our love, building trust, toilet training, training him how to walk on a lead in a sometimes big and scary world for a dog, weening him onto different foods, play-time, socialising him from an early age with other people and animals and even a bedtime routine! The first few months of a puppy's life are hectic (but so rewarding) to say the least!

Most of all, Louis has taught me so much about myself. Having a dog has taught me to be selfless, put him first when I need to, plan my days around him and his walks etc and overall, I feel has made me a much better and calmer person for it.

I am confident I am not alone feeling this way and that's why I think us fur mums can acknowledge and celebrate our own little Mother's Day and what more of a fun and perfect way to do this, than to have a relaxed and happy photo shoot session!

Not only is having a photo shoot for you and your 'fur baby' a fun, laid-back and unique experience to remember, but more importantly, it will provide you with

ever-lasting, beautiful memories of your family and furry loved one, to enjoy for many years to come...
