Wise Old Grandma~Black And White Sunday

Wise Old Grandma was having a talk with the yellow puppy. She was giving her all kinds of great advice. Then the puppy started laughing at her…..I wonder what Nellie was telling her?

Once A Mother Always A Mother~Black And White Sunday

Once A Mother Always A Mother

This was proven to me yesterday when Glory was whelping her litter and one little puppy didn’t make it. I was trying to revive the puppy when Nellie came over and started nuzzling the puppy. I knew the little one was gone so I set it outside the whelping box and tended to Glory. Next thing I know Nellie laid down next to the whelping box and started to try and revive the puppy herself. The emotion I witness and felt coming from Nellie is something I can’t explain maybe you will be able to feel it from looking at this picture. Nellie had 3 litters in her breeding career, luckily none of her puppies perished. Her last litter was with the birth of Glory back in December of 2011. Nellie is now going to be 11 and was spayed after the whelp. It doesn’t matter how old she is or that she is spayed you can’t take that motherly instinct away from her. When the puppies cry she perks her ears up, when Glory is outside going potty Nellie is by the box counting puppies and making sure all is well with them. She has been such a good girl during this whole process. I am so blessed to have such a dog and companion during this very exciting time in Glory adventure. Glory is a terrific mom and it’s all because she had the best teacher a student could have. Thank you Nellie for all the joy and help you are giving us.

So sorry for the doom and gloom post but with life there is death. I’m documenting this whole experience for myself and for those who wish to follow along so this is just part of mother nature that we have no control over.

“A Mother’s Love”

A Mother’s Love
Author unknown
A Mother’s Love is like an island
In life’s ocean vast and wide,
A peaceful, quiet shelter
From the restless, rising tide …
A Mother’s Love is like a fortress
And we seek protection there
When the waves of tribulation
Seem to drown us in despair …
A Mother’s Love’s a sanctuary
Where our souls can find sweet rest
From the struggle and the tension
Of life’s fast and futile quest …
A Mother’s Love is like a tower
Rising far above the crowd,
And her smile is like the sunshine
Breaking through a threatening cloud …
A Mother’s Love is like a beacon
Burning bright with Faith and Prayer,
And through the changing scenes of life
We can find a Haven There …
For A Mother’s Love is fashioned
After God’s enduring love,
It is endless and unfailing
Like the love of Him above …
For God knew in His great wisdom
That He couldn’t be Everywhere,
So He put His Little Children
In a Loving Mother’s Care.
