ntNo one will love you like your dog! TRUTH! It’s Terrie Carr, and the beauty of life with a dog is they want nothing from you except love (and maybe food!) So why not spend some extra love time with them on the day of love…….Valentine’s Day!

Our pups give us so much- loyalty, love, companionship, and of course an ear and a paw when we are having a crappy day. They are the true definition of love. I can’t remember a period of my life without a dog. From as far back as I can remember, I have always had the love and companionship of a dog. I was also one of those kids who had to pet all the dogs and took home strays and hid puppies under my bed! (True story) .

How to Spend Valentine’s Day with Your Dog

Valentine’s Day is a day of love and whether or not you have a significant other to spend it with, making time for our loyal companions should be key! Why not? They give us so much love, it’s the least we can do.

I picked out a few of my favorite things to do with Rosie in this story- Food, treats, locations ….really basic and really “LOVE-LY”. It’s a great tribute to our furry friends who love us so much and ask for little in return. The true meaning of LOVE for sure.

And if you are looking for true love, don’t forget to visit our WDHA Rock N’ Ruff page with many great pups looking for true love too! Here are a few that are still available to win your heart forever……..

Happy Valentine’s Day, Don’t forget to kiss a dog……

  • Make Some Extra Time To Just "BE" With Your Dog

    Time is something that is precious, and something we can never get back. I love spending time with Rosie. Walking, Unwinding, Just hanging. It’s the greatest . And the thing that chills me out the most. Being with my best friend. We never have them long enough, and after losing both Scarlet and Star within two years, I never take the simple element of “time” for granted.

    TC and Rosie

    I love spending time with Rosie Carr
