For Mothers Day this year, I think we should take a minute to celebrate and acknowledge all of the fur mumma’s out there, because dog mums deserve to be celebrated too!

Erin King is a professional pet photographer in Melbourne, Australia who’s natural environmental sessions aim to capture not only emotion filled portraits of our beloved pets but also the interaction between pet and owner to illustrate the meaningful relationships we share with our pets. In this series of images, Erin has captured the loving bond shared between women and their dogs with each sharing a special intimate and emotional moment. What better way to pay homage to the dog mum.

These days, pets are often referred to as our babies and similarly treated as such. They are the ‘new kids’ and it’s evident that as we become more and more connected and passionate about our relationships with animals, and more specifically with dogs as our closest companions, they’ve become so much more than just pets, now becoming an integral part of our family. Taking care of a dog is a big commitment not too dissimilar from taking care of a child and for some fur mums their dog will fulfil this role being the closest thing to their child. All a dog ever wants is love and we dog mums have a lot of love to give.
