MilShelb Mom Thoughts

The thing about being a MilShelb Mom is that it is tough. I would imagine it is a lot like being a two-legged's Mom in some ways. For example, it is mine and Jake's responsibility to be the MilShelb's personal advocate. We have to have their best interest in mind when making decisions that can effect them in any way. We have to do this with no verbal communication from Milly and Shelby and that makes it very tough. Another example, when they're sick, they can't tell us. They can't say what hurts. It is up to us to notice their moods and behaviors and quickly get them the help they need. A third example, they can't tell us if someone hurts them. Milly and Shelby have no way of communicating to us what happens when they are out of our sight. For that reason, they are not ever left alone with people we do not know and trust. For that reason, if I was ever uncomfortable with someone at the vet's office, I would not allow them to take Milly and Shelby out of my sight. I really don't like that idea anyhow, but it's not up to me to tell them how to do their job. However, we have been lucky enough to always have people who seem trustworthy taking care of the MilShelb.

Anyhow, here are my babies...

  2. Well said! Having pups is like having kids that are eternal toddlers. :-)
