Happy Mom’s Day: love the hounds

Happy Mother’s Day to all the hound Moms (and real human Moms). Every Mom should be celebrated today for their hard work.

Another Mary Oliver poem because it just happened in my household:

“Please, please, I think I haven’t eaten for days.

What? Ricky, you had a huge supper.

“I did? My stomach doesn’t remember. Oh, I think I’m fading away. Please make me breakfast and I’ll tell you something you don’t know.”

He ate rapidly.

Okay, I said. What were you going to tell me?

He smiled the wicked smile. “Before we came over, Anne already gave me breakfast,” he said. ~Mary Oliver, “Dog Songs”
