Happy Birthday Mom!


Tomorrow is mom's birthday. To celebrate mom's birthday, we thought we would share some other funny photos on the farm of mom. Mom is a city girl. She's lived within 45 minutes outside of New York City her entire life. Growing up, she never visited a farm before or ever seen farm animals in person. But she loves animals, and when she was invited to Dad's farm for the first time, she was so excited!! Dad's family farm is about 8 hours north of us. Very close to Canada. It's a very, very long drive, and there are no airports nearby. When we got to the farm, mom could barely contain her excitement! She wanted to hold a piglet. Little did mom know that pigs do not like to be picked up and that they make this really really loud squealing noise when they are picked up off the ground. The first photo is mom's face when the squealing piglet was handed to her. She made this really scared face, because the squealing was very very loud and directly in her ear. But, then when the piglet was being held, little piggie stopped squealing because he felt more comforted. That is the second photo. We think mom is very funny. Funny, funny mom. Mom misses the farm and all the animals she met. Hopefully she can make time away from work to go up to see them again. In the meanwhile Happy Birthday mom!!

Happy Birthday mom, I hope you get lots of treats and smooches.

I am like the little piggie, I don't like being picked up. I am a paws on the floor type of cat.

Have a great birthday weekend.

Happy Birthday Mom! Piglets look cute, too bad they don't appreciate being held.

Your mom looks a little leery of that very big piglet. Perhaps if it were very small and pink she would have been less nervous..'course, they squeal, too! Happy Birthday, Mom!

Your mom was lucky to be able to spend some time at a farm. That is what my mom would love too. And, my mom probably would have picked up the pig too not knowing they don't like it!

We wondered why she was making a face in the first picture. Glad the piggy settled down so she could hold it.

Dennis says you have a very pretty mom. Dennis would want to groom and sniff cute piglets. humans like picking us small animals up and hugging. Dennis has a nyc mom too.
