Well, it may be true in the animal kingdom, but not always true with human kind. My mom has two older sons that she absolutely adores. Me not so much. I never really got it and I guess I never will.

I drive through an open range on the way to work every morning and this time of year the cows are out there with their calves. It is the sweetest thing what good mothers they are, and totally by instinct.

I love my mother but I confess I’ve always been closer to dad growing up. It wasn’t until a few years ago I became really close to mom and we not only were mother and daughter, she became my friend.

You should honor/ treasure your mom and dad every day.

I love the kitty pictures too btw. I just wish my mom likes kitties.

My favorite...

This is classic. Smart @ss trouble maker monkey kid pushes his brother/sister in the river, mom scoops him/her right up, and dad pushes the trouble maker behind him as if to say "get out of here you idiot!" This is all very human like behavior and hilarious.

I pin my mistake on brain damage.

Of course otters, one of the cutest animals in the three worlds.

Absolutely adorable. Love them all, but #3 and # 12 are killing me.

Look at that face in # 3: “MO-OM! STOP!”

Yes, they are!
I used to have two of them.
*sigh*
With the economy the way it is, I’ll never be able to afford one.

My little long haired Dachshund is not doing so well getting around these days.
She’s 16 years old, after all.
I know her time is coming,but I just can’t imagine life without Gretchen.
I have to do what’s best for HER, not me..
but it’s so hard...

I had a dog once that did eat the blinds. I guess it was separation anxiety. The cats never did any damage to the house or furniture.

Which horse pictures?

There is only the one at the link, but lately there have been other shots of colts or fillies with their front legs straddling their mothers’ necks, mostly seen on the FReepathon thread.

Or, you could just ask Slings and Arrows.

Yes, that pix as linked. Looks like a Halflinger. Just seems like the foal is too short to jump up there.
