It’s Valentines day today and you humans may well be dreaming about the thud on your door mat as pink scented envelopes come through your door, a dozen red roses being delivered, a candlelit dinner or being whisked away for a romantic weekend in the country. You might also be thinking ‘Yuk!’
If sharing Valentines day with a human is not for you don’t worry; a recent report from Yahoo stated, ‘One in five people would prefer to spend Valentines day with their pet over their partner’. The USA has an estimated $815 million dollar market on pet Valentine cards and gifts and the UK is catching on as more and more humans opt to spend Valentines day with their pets.
As a dog I’m not surprised; a date with a dog is far superior to one with a human. We don’t care if you’re having a bad hair day or you have an outbreak of spots. We will never ever say, ‘ Your bum looks big in that’. Just think, no need for make-up, or lycra. You can wear your oldest clothes and just head out to the beach with a ball. We don’t care if you shower; in fact we prefer it if you don’t. We will snuggle up with you on the sofa and never fight with you over who has the TV remote control or what we watch on telly; we don’t care what’s for dinner as long as it is food; we will even clean up any food that lands on the kitchen floor! Us dogs are loyal, loving and fun.
We will adore you and follow you everywhere – now if a human did that it would be called stalking. We won’t answer you back or ask, ‘How much did you spend?’ We will always be happy to see you and have a cuddle and we never get embarrassed by public displays of affection.
Roses are red, Violets are blue, Doggies are wonderful And will always love you!
