10 Reasons Why My Dog Is My Valentine

The following article was written by Keegan Baur.

Valentine’s Day is the day when we cherish our loved ones and shower them with affection. We each choose a valentine and make every effort to show that special someone just how much we truly appreciate him or her. But who says “that someone” has to be human? For everyone who’s “in love” with a furry, four-legged canine, let’s take a moment to reflect on why we’re so crazy about our dogs.

1. My dog joyously greets me every time I come home.

2. My dog is always in the mood to cuddle.

    My dogs are my valentines because they bring me immense joy every day! i have four dogs that
    greet me at the door every day. They know what time i should be home and are waiting at the door.
    When i am sad or unhappy, they listen quietly, don’t give me unwanted advice and don’t judge me.
    I would be nothing without them. They are my valentines every day of the year.

    Dogs are never phony or fake, never lie never curse never stop needing you.

  • Mark says:

    Dogs are amazing. We adopted Lizzie a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel a while back because her owner had passed away and we had also just lost our Cavalier Webster. We have two house rabbits and were told that this dog would be a problem because she chases other wild animals in the back yard. But she just treats them like other members of the family. She still chases after the cat next door. Go figure?

  • Jim says:

    I love dogs too, but I find some of these comments to be so sad. I’ve been married to my best friend for 22 wonderful years. Dogs are great but they are not a substitute for a relationship with another human being. Dogs can add to that relationship, like our basset “Sparkey”.
