A few posts back I talked about how Pierrot came into our lives. I honestly can’t imagine my life without a dog in it. Growing up, I always had them around and even when I eventually moved out of my parents house, I always needed to have a puppy companion with me. I truly believe that dogs help me feel less stressed and that they are the most loyal creatures to walk this earth. A dog’s love is unconditional. I can’t understand the people that don’t love dogs but I’m also not here to judge. I’m a lover of all animals when it comes down to it, and even with our baby girl on the way (She’s still not here yet…but I’ll save that for a later post of frustration), I can safely say that I’ve always considered myself a dog mom first and foremost.
EVEN THOUGH people insist that Mother’s Day is only for real Mothers, I refuse to believe it. Some people love their animals like they were their own children and I fully acknowledge that love every May. That being said, I was really excited to receive this custom pet portrait of our Pierrot just in time to hang up for Mother’s Day. The above picture of the portrait hardly does it justice. It was hand drawn by one of my friends, Danielle Stratford, who is an amazing artist, mother and animal lover and her talent and attention to detail is amazing. She even got every straggly hair Pierrot has on his unkempt ears.
If you’re looking for a good gift for Mother’s Day or ANY DAY for a pet lover, I highly recommend checking out her website or her Instagram account that shows you the drawing process in detail. Not only is her talent amazing, she is super friendly and she gives you updates the whole way, from order to shipping time! If you mention Pierrot’s Portrait above, you get a 20% discount off your order. I hope everyone has a great Mother’s Day and I hope this baby is out of my belly in time to celebrate with us. 😛
