Today is Valentine’s day and M just explained to me what this means. It is a very romantic day, when you think about the ones you love. Humans make a fuss about sending cards, sometimes anonymous, and then start fussing about whether the one they love loves them too. We dogs do not have this problem. When we see a dog we like, we just jump on him/her. When the other dog does not appreciate this, he/she snaps. Straightforward and simple, we like that.
Since it is Valentine’s Day, I will write a post especially to the dogs I love. To Boss: I am really glad we got to know each other at Nicolines place, because you are an awesome dog. You are huge and strong and I love your smell. I also like your independent character, so whatever Nicoline and your human try to achieve in your training: stay exactly the way you are. Maybe we can go chase a burglar one day! I’d like that. I will run to the criminal and bite him in the leg to make him fall, than you can jump on him and pin him down. When the police is there we will hand him over to them and receive two big juicy bones as a reward! That would be an Adventure.
To Flynn: I love the colors of your fur and the way you look at me. It makes me go all wobbly in my long legs. I would like to spend more time with you! Just lying in the sun together, on the beach. That would be nice.
To Jack: you are my coolest friend, you make me feel shy when you pry at me with your dark eyes. I am sorry I snapped at you last time I saw you on the beach, I do not know what got into me (all right, I do: there was a little crab I wanted to eat), but I promise you I won’t do that again (as long as you leave the crabs to me). Hey, we understand each other, don’t we? You being a big mean looking Rottweiler from the shelter and me being a sweet looking, beautiful dog from a shelter too.
To Dange, formerly known as Danger: I miss you, because I haven’t seen you in a while. How are you? I remember very well that as a puppy I ran to you and put my little legs around your huge head and you started to snort because you were so happy to see me. I hope I will see you again soon!
To Fred: you are my gentleman friend and always will be. When we are out together, I marvel at the majestic way you walk and the polite things you say. I do hope that someday we will get the change to chase rabbits together. I am a bit younger so I am faster than you, but you are a whippet bred for the races, so I do expect some competition! Let’s dream about that race for the rabbits.
M just tells me one can’t write Valentine’s cards to different males. Why on earth not? Humans can make life very complicated. I do write these posts to all the males I love, because I love them all. I think that is fine and so do they, I am sure about that. Happy Valentine’s Day!
