As foster dog Aloo (“Looie”) makes her transition into a permanent member of the Paco crew this week, we couldn’t help but notice the coincidental timing: foster-mom Josie is becoming an official “mom” right around Mother’s Day. Seriously, how perfect is that?
It started us thinking about how dog-moms deserve the same recognition as human-moms on this here Mother’s Day. If you consider it, the job is almost equally as difficult. Of course, there’s the added bonus that dogs don’t talk back (okay, maybe sometimes) or grow up to hate you, but since they emotionally mature at about the human-toddler level then there’s still a lifetime of sleepless nights and never ending poop pick-up, not to mention the day-to-day routine of feeding and care, for which you never receive any credit.
In an ideal world, the dogs would all stop, pause and properly recognize our never-ending efforts on Mother’s Day but why hold our breath… that’s never going to happen. Instead, we’ve got to take the power into our own hands and celebrate ourselves.

Of course, we encourage you to get something special for yourself (like belt, bracelet, or class), but since we know that the collars that make our dogs look awesome are as much for our benefit as theirs, then that works, too 😉 Really, it’s your gift so get what *you* want!
As always, feel free to contact us with any questions either by email or phone, we’re always here to help.
In the meantime, go give yourself a big ol’ pat on the back. Even if the dogs can’t be bothered to pamper us for one day, we can at least have one big group hug, get ourselves something nice, and recognize the fact that while dog ownership is a lot of work, but we’re all in it for the long haul!
