Doggie Valentines

Since Valentine’s Day has fallen on a Monday, I’m taking a break from the Puppiness Project to share some Valentine’s love.

Golden Retriever on Lap

Don't you know that Golden Retriever and black sweater do not mix? Oh well, if you don't care, I sure don't.

First to my sweetie who loves carrying Honey around (even at nearly 50 pounds), loves having his picture turn up in Something Wagging, and loves me. Thank you for being my Valentine.

And secondly to my Honey.

(with sincere apologies to Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart)

My Fuzzy Valentine

My fuzzy valentine,
Sweet puppy valentine,
You make me smile when you fart.
You are so laughable, your zoomies graphable,
And yet you tear my socks apart.

Is your love expressed in barks?
Did you steal balls ‘round the parks?
When you go outside at dark, will you pee?

But, don’t change your fur for me.
You’re the best cur to me.
Stay little valentine, stay! (No, not walk over to your toy. Stay!)
Each day is Valentine’s Day.

Thirdly, I need to share some linky love with fellow pet bloggers who published sweet Valentine’s Day posts. Since it would be very bad form to show so much love to bloggers that I neglected my first two Valentines, I’m just going to post the links without comments. Please check them out.

And if you posted Valentine’s love today and I missed you, please put a link in the comments.

Reactive champion – My favorite things

The Other End of the Leash – A Valentine to Willie

Tales and Tails – The Dog Test

Life Spent Wagging – On getting hurt, living, learning, and my valentine

Little Dogs on Long Leashes – Love is a many-splendored thing, if you can find it

And finally, I went by Rescued Insanity to see if Kristine had posted something (she writes great stuff and she publishes about the same time I do most days; I always seek her out). I found she had left a Valentine for me–a Shivie award!

Thank you, Kristine. This is a very high compliment from the tireless blogger who comments at every site in cyberspace, trains Shiva to leap tall buildings (or at least agility courses) in a single bound, and writes consistently great posts.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

  1. Awww…

    There’s a lot of awwwwing in my comments today.

    I realized some bloggers in the States must be waking up because there was a sudden burst of activity on my google reader, just as I was about to turn out the lights and say goodnight. I’m glad I popped in. Thank you for the link! It’s very sweet of you. And congrats on your Shivie! It’s well deserved and I suspect that award is a stayer.

    I hope you have A Most Excellent V-Day with your sweetie and your honey! :) xox

    • Thanks for the awwwww-some comment.

      Y’know, I’m glad to have a friend in Australia. That way, I can read your blog and know that the world hasn’t come to an end yet because you’ve already made it to the end of the day by the time I’m waking up.

      Cool, huh?

  2. Awww! Your hubby sounds almost as sweet as mine! I hope all three of you (I’m including Honey) have the sweetest of days together! Thanks for the mention, too!

  3. Yay! Happy, happy Valentine’s day and Shivie day to you!

  4. Awwww! You are too sweet. Thank YOU!! I am feeling very lazy and behind these days, very guilty all around. But I am trying to forgive myself my imperfections. I’m not very big into Valentine’s Day but perhaps for a little while I can show myself some love and take a break.

    I hope you have a lovely day with your lovely family!

  5. A very Happy Valentine’s Day- congrats on your Shivie award :)

  6. Congrats on your Shivie!! What a nice Valentine’s day surprise for you.

  7. Aw, great post! After I read “your zoomies graphable” I just laughed and laughed. :)
