Before I Was a Dog Mom
Before I was a Dog Mom........
...I cleaned my house everyday, I never tripped over toys, stuffies, chewies, or invited neighbour's dog over to play.
...I didn't worry if my plants, cleansers, plastic bags, toilet paper, soap, or deodorant were poisonous or dangerous.
...I had never been peed on, pooped on, drooled on, chewed on, or pinched by puppy teeth.
...I made and enjoyed hot meals...alone.
...I had unstained, unfurred, clothes, and quiet conversations on the phone, even if the doorbell rang.
...I had complete control of my thoughts, body and mind.
...I slept all night without sharing the covers or my pillow.
...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.
...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 something so small could make me feel so important.
...I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment, or the satisfaction of being a...Dog Mom.
