Valentine Dog

Being the only male dog in the house with three females is fun most of the time, but on Valentines day I have a lot of presents to buy and a lot of cards to send. Did you know how hard it is to buy proper valentines day cards in the pet shop? They only sell cards for people, not dogs. I looked for a card that would express sentiments in a way that dogs can relate to. I wanted to buy a nice card that said something like "Roses are red, Violets are blue, Your tail wags nice and your butt smells nice too". You know, something that says Happy Valentines day, but with proper dog wishes instead of that messy stuff people write.

A little know fact is that Dogs are getter poets than people. You may never have considered this, but things rhyme better in dog than they do in people. Everything dogs say rhymes with "Bark". That makes romantic poems easy. When a dog writes a poem it always rhymes. For example, take the old classic: "Bark, bark, bark." It has perfect timing and rhythm, with a very sincere message.

Sandy and Abby will mark their first week's anniversary on Sunday. They are such nice room mates. When the rescue asked us to take them we were told that having both of them would be like having only one dog. They were right, except that you can not trip over one dog in two different places at the same time, but you can with Sandy and Abby. Sandy and Abby are very quiet and very well behaved. They have come from a happy home, they were not miss treated or abused. They are Valentine dogs, they are wonderful lovers and great companions.

They are playing with us now, when Bella and I go into "full romp" mode, they join in and instead of sounding like a small herd of elephants, we sound like a large herd of elephants a play. We have about 8 tennis balls in the house, at any given time, four or more are in play. Abby likes soft toys that she can carry around. Sandy likes tennis balls the best, but we all play with all the toys just to have fun.

We have not heard from anyone who wants to give Sandy and Abby a forever home, but we hope they are out there, maybe they tried to call when the humans were out to dinner. If you did, please call back. Sandy and Abby are ready, they keep their travel bag packed with all their things, ready to go home with you when you are ready to adopts a pair of wonderful friends and life companions.

Happy Valentines Day to all of our readers.
