Mother’s Day falls on Sunday, May 9th this year, and we couldn’t be more excited to honor all the great doggy mamas out there.

The puppies in the pictures below are showing their mother dogs some appreciation with licking, snuggling, playing, and more.

Here are 25 of the cutest pups and mama dogs to celebrate Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day: Pictures Of Mama Dogs And Their Puppies

Aren’t they all so cute?

We at DogTime would like to wish you a Happy Mother’s Day, especially to all of you human dog moms out there. You deserve special thanks for giving your pup a home with lots of motherly love.

We also want to thank the shelter and rescue workers who do so much for the mother dogs who end up in their care. It’s not easy to make sure mama dogs and their puppies stay healthy, but volunteers do it every day.

Of course, as cute as mama dogs and puppies are, it’s important to remember to have your female dog spayed. It’ll help her avoid a lot of health issues, prevent male dogs from constantly bothering her, and ensure you don’t bring any more puppies into the world who will contribute to crowded shelters and pet overpopulation.

Have a Happy Mother’s Day with the dogs you love!
