Valentine’s Day is a day filled with flowers, candy and perhaps a date with your loved one. If you are single and do not have a partner perhaps you have an animal such as a dog, cat or other furry friend. You can still make Valentine’s Day special by spending time with your pet.
You can show them a little extra tender loving care by taking them for an extra long walk, or by playing one of their favorite games. Duke, my three-year-old Pit Bull Terrier, loves going on long walks and he loves to play games such as tug and fetch. Seeing Duke wag his tail at full speed while going for a walk and playing his favorite games sure does bring a smile to my face.
You can serve them an extra special treat for a snack or a special meal in a toy. If you have a pocket pet you can let them out of their cage for longer than normal and give them an extra treat too. Duke loves his meat flavored milk bones and one of his meals served in a Kong toy.
After a long day of walks, games and meals remember to have a special evening together by just having a cuddle or maybe watch some tv together. Duke loves cuddles and to watch tv.
If you do not have a furry friend of your own remember that there always are animals in need at your local shelter or rescue center. I am sure the dogs, cats and of course, the humans could always use your support. Perhaps you will be able to save a life by finding that perfect pet to call your own on this special day.
Duke and I will be spending the day together doing all the things he loves.
No matter how you are spending this day, I hope each and every one of you and your pets have a great day.
