It’s almost Valentine’s Day and love is in the air.
Today, my friends, I will not be touching on any of these topics. I will, however, be talking about love.
Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate the one you love. While you obviously appreciate your special someone every day of the year, V-day is a time to make him or her feel extra special. I’m usually very good at the Valentine tradition (cute card, heart-shaped fruit snacks, a Hershey kiss or two), but this year I’m flying solo and will be working instead. Most likely, when I get home, I’ll kick off my shoes, pour a glass of wine, and snuggle up with my forever Valentines – my dogs.
As givers of unconditional love the whole year through, dogs deserve all the Russell Stover chocolates in the world.
Sadly, and to most dogs’ disappointment, this cannot happen.
What? No chocolate?
To make up for it, dog owners from all over return that love to their furry friends in a number of other ways. But are those ways equivalent to boxes upon boxes of bite-size chocolate goodness? Just HOW MUCH do you love your dogs?
I compiled a list of nine questions to help you measure your love. See how many you answer YES to:
1. Do you refer to your dogs as real people?
Girl: Hi, Mom!
Mom: Hi, honey.
Girl: I just wanted to check in. How are the boys?
Mom: They’re good! I just fed them and now Dad’s giving them a bath. Did I tell you about the mess they made yesterday?
2. Does your instagram feed include posts like this?
Just hanging with the boys!
This is the life.
Cutest little pumpkins!
3. Do you give them their own seat at the table on Thanksgiving?
Where’s the turkey?
4. Do you tuck them in at night?
I’m as comfy as I look.
5. Do you treat everything they do as if it’s the next world wonder?
Look, he’s running!
Look, he can swim!
6. Do you change your voice when you speak to them?
“Who’s a big sleepy boy?”
7. Do you make them look extra adorable for special occasions?
There better be presents involved.
8. Do you make the holidays fun for them, too?
Yes! More presents!
9. Do you drop everything at a moment’s notice just to protect them?
When you hear there’s a rabid raccoon on the loose,
these signs go up on every door.
If you answered YES to even half of these questions, then you definitely really love your dog(s). One could even say you’re a tad obsessed.
If you answered YES to all of these questions, then you are most likely a member of my family. In that case…
Riley and Guinness say hello!
~Happy Valentine’s Day~
