The theme for this Thursday is “FAMILY” (Grandparents, Parents, Children, Family Occasions, Moms with Babies, Animals,…)
These pictures will tell you what family means. The warmth and camaraderie between us and our animal companions. Nature is a powerful teacher. I was astonished how Elsa protected and cared for Pepper’s pups. You do not have to give birth to be a mother .
I witnessed the most humane of all bonds in these gorgeous creations of universe. I have read and seen from close counters how animal companions (never call them pets) enrich our lives with unconditional love. Here is an example of love and care beyond color, caste, creed, something we humans never learned.
This a sight I will remember forever. See how the little cherubs are trying to reach Elsa’s teats as she lovingly obliges. Beautiful motherly love.
Elsa moved away as the little ones gathered around their mother. It was an evening of tremendous joy and its not just that the dogs played among themselves. we were showered with affectionate licks and cuddles as well.
There is such spontaneous surge of affection that these beautiful animals show. I have found that family extends far beyond what the society defines.
You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them. ~Desmond Tutu
