Comic Ricky Gervais roots for the bulls. Actor Marissa Lewis dreams of a world free of cages and chains. Well, one of my many “perfect world wishes” is that every day could be Valentine’s Day. Not only could I indulge daily in delectable vegan chocolates like those from Harbor Candy, which happen to be this week’s “Win It” Wednesday prizes …
… I also believe that people might become more loving and kinder to everyone around them, including their companion animals. All dogs would be allowed to stop and sniff on leisurely strolls instead of being yelled at and yanked along on hasty morning marches. Cats could enjoy their naps on newspapers, along with some gentle scratches from their human caretakers, instead of being shooed away. I’m confident that my wish would benefit not just my own addiction to chocolate but also the lives of countless otherwise beleaguered and bored companion animals.
So tell us, what’s your “perfect world wish” for animals? If you can’t narrow it down to one, enter as often as you’d like. Make us snort with laughter or choke back tears and you might win one of two boxes of Harbor Candy chocolates. We’ve got a deluxe box of chocolates for the grand-prize winner and a sampler box for the runner-up. If you win, feel free to share them with your sweetheart, but if you keep ’em for yourself, we won’t tell.
