Woof Wednesday: Puppy Love & Valentine’s Day


Puppy's ALL it's cracked up to be!

Magic runs to me with his ears down and tail a-wag, wanting attention. He rolls on his back for a tummy rub or brings me a treasured toy to share. How do your dogs show love…or do they?

Dogs have well-known reputations as loyal, loving companions—the quintessential “man’s best friend” and deservedly so. Dogs thrive on social interaction. Heck, Magical-Dawg even enjoys the cat’s company (he won’t admit it!). With Valentine’s Day in the offing, I’d love to hear from y’all the various ways YOUR furry wonder’s show love.

To get you started, here’s what I’ve come up with — 12 ways puppies show love.  And on a related note, here’s a fun article on a GREAT way for you to offer the ideal Valentine’s gift to your pet-loving significant other.   If’n your Valentine would like a pet book, well you’ve come to the right place!

  1. Great gift ideas for V-Day. Pet lovers are some of the best lovers around!

  2. Midge loves everyone! I love the way she rolls her eyes up at me when sitting in my lap as though she just adores me. Of course the feeling is mutual. (I told Ron to start taking lessons.) 🙂 Our non-independent cat likes snuggling and touching us with her paws. Midge loves her—tooo much. Trying to train her to back off when playtime is over for Colors.

  3. Awesome ideas for Valentine’s Day! My dogs show love by climbing on top of me and snuggling. Or they will bring me toys, sometimes my Jack Russell will bring me a bag of cookies from the pantry. I suspect they are really for her, but she needs me to open the bag.
