I Promise, Mom!

This puppy looks like they are trying to convince mamma to let them go out with their friends.

Considering the look this mother dog is giving her pup... we are guessing she’s feeling a bit suspicious. Moms definitely have a sixth sense for these kinds of things!

I’m Fine Mom, Really!

Some may call it “overprotective,” but moms certainly know how to watch after their kids. This mamma dog is carefully making sure her pup is a-okay from head to toe.

Her pup may not appreciate this now, but we’re guessing they’ll look back on their mom’s nurturing fondly… maybe in a few years.

Smile Big for the Camera, Honey

This mamma dog and her pup are posing for the camera. This mamma dog has thought of it all between the basket, gray background, and perfect posing.

We’re not so sure how her pup feels about it at the moment. But, he’ll look back on it fondly one day!

Cheaper by the (Half) Dozen

We don’t know how this mamma dog does it. Six puppies is a lot to manage. Between feeding them, keeping them out of trouble, and nurturing them, we can understand why she's making that face!

A Sunny, Stylish Day in the Park
