This Mother's Day, remember that a dog is #NotAProduct

Sunday is the day to celebrate the moms in our lives. And chances are, there are tons of moms out there that would love a little human recognition. They don't want flowers or cookies or candy. They're not hoping to head to brunch. They'd just like to get out into the sunshine, like Liam, and head home with a happy family.

The week before Mother's Day is set aside to remember all of the mom dogs that spend their lives making "products" for families hoping for puppies. Yup, it's all about puppy mill awareness.

This is a topic close to my heart, as I have two purebred dogs. It's 100% possible that there are dogs just like them in mills right now, and it's also 100% possible that there are people out there hoping to buy dogs just like them.

So on this Mother's Day, I urge you to check out this webpage. It's full of statistics about where pups in pet stores really come from, and it's loaded with other options you can tap into if you'd like to bring home a new pup.

If you're not in the market for a new little one, you can still do your part by sharing this page and/or writing your own posts about the topic. Every little thing we do as a community to help those forgotten momma dogs helps.

Thanks, in advance for joining the #NotAProduct movement. And happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there, both human and canine, from Liam and our pack!
