National Dog Mom’s Day is observed on the second Saturday which means this year it falls on May 14 this year.

This is a day for all pup-loving women across the country to celebrate their special kind of motherhood.

Over the years our pups have made their way into our hearts, creating deep bonds with us and becoming our family members.

For many dog moms “they are like any other child to us.”

New Barker Contributor Anastaia Turchetta joins Gayle Guyardo the host of the nationally syndicated health and wellness show Bloom with fun ways to celebrate our beloved pets.

Bloom airs in 40 markets across the country, with a reach of approximately 36 million households, and in Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and Madison, WI.

You can watch Bloom in the Tampa Bay Market weekdays at Noon on WTTA: Spectrum 1006; Frontier 514; DirecTV 38; Dish 38; Comcast 43, and look for Bloom early mornings on WFLA News Channel 8.
