Happy Mother's Day

I wanted to get Mom a little something for Mother's Day - and with the help of my friend (& George - the Bassett Hound's Mom - Lila) - I got her this great new book, "First Pet" by the AP, Associated Press.

It's the perfect present for Mom, since it combines dogs and Presidential history! And of course we thought we'd share our favorite chapter, President Ford's very own golden girl, Liberty.

Mom was in high school during the Ford years - and she remembers when Liberty was big news! Liberty even had puppies in the White House!

...and was included in the First Family's 1975 portrait!

Of course a book - even with presidential golden retreivers only goes so far. I know the real way to make mom smile , let her sleep in (I did) and bring her pretty flowers!

I hope you all enjoyed your Mother's Day.

Yes, our mommas are furry imPAWtant people in all of our lives and we don't have to be tummy-born to have a momma. Mommas love us because we are born in their ♥.icar

Our favorite part of that book is the Portuguese Water Dog, Bo. Why? Because we're Portuguese Water Dogs, of course.
