Gotta Watch: Mother's Day

Mother’s Day is May 8 and, in the spirit of motherhood everywhere, we wanted to share some warm-and-fuzzy mommy videos that will hopefully make you smile. Here's a hint: They involve baby animals and their - how should we say, atypical? - mothers. These videos prove that you don't have to be a biological mother to be a mom.

Chihuahua's motherly instinct - This video from 2007 could be one of the cutest, or most disturbing videos ever.  At first glance, everything looks totally normal. Until you realize those babies aren't actually puppies.

Dog is mother of the year to kittens - Who said dogs and cats can't get along?  Check out this video of a pooch named Lily Lou at an animal shelter in Iowa who ends up adopting nine motherless kittens.

Chicken takes pups under wing - Back in 2003 the Scott family, got the shock of a lifetime.  They came home to find that one of their pet chickens had flown its coop and set up shop with a litter of new born puppies and their doggy mom. They all seem to get along fine, only problem is that the pups are having a little trouble telling the difference between feather and fur so feeding is a bit of a challenge.

    Tenderitis, your condescending screen name didnt escape me, what does is why youd bother to post such a juvenile comment. oh well. And Caesar( Philip) werent they heartfelt scathing denunciations ? I kinda read that but maybe I was wrong ? Seemed like a passionate plea on behalf of the people affected by the greed of others?

    And Thank You for including me in your thoughts as well! I'm blessed with so many people who I count as friends, I've made a blanket HM'sD to all of you! 🙂
