Happy Valentines Day Woofas,
Valentines Day, hmm what does it mean? Can anyone tell us?
I found an interesting story on The Dark Origins of Valentine’s Day!!!! Involving Roman’s slaying a goat and a dog and whipping young women with the remains believing it would make them more fertile!!!! EEKkkk I’m glad that’s changed!!
Then there’s The History of St Valentine himself that makes for an interesting read!!!
Valentine’s Day in this day and age brings with it a whole heap of different emotions from ‘I don’t give a crap’ to ‘why didn’t I get anything’ to ‘OMG I’m so in love’!
New lovers go out of their way to make this day special for their other half. They go out to dinner and shower their significant other in gifts. They’re the annoying couple making lovey dove eyes at each other and everything is all about love.
Dean and I were guilty of this last year because it was our first Valentine’s Day together. We didn’t go extravagant but we did buy lovey cards and chocolates and gifts for each other.
This day is amazing and happy and filled with love.
These couples are lucky if they even remember what the day is or when it is. They’re not fussed and see it as a huge money making scheme.
They’re in love and don’t need one day to prove it!!!
These guys sit around and hope and pray that someone sends them something. All the while pretending to be happy for those that actually get something sent to them. Or these days they’re on Tinder vigorously swiping to find that last minute ‘love moment’!!
They still have hope for love.
They loath this day, having to sit through all the crap that comes with it. They protest loudly that it’s a money making scheme and how stupid people fall for it.
They’ve been burned and see this day as something to mourn!!!!
ALAS!!!! It doesn’t matter how you see this day, whether you’re with someone, searching for someone or have given up on people, THERE’S ALWAYS THE LOVE OF YOUR DOG!
Let’s face it Woofa’s our dogs are awesome!!!! I’ve no doubt there’s a million more reasons why no-one loves us like our dogs!!!! Why don’t you list them now!
So if you’re not feeling love from people this year, turn to your fur baby and feel the love emanating off them towards you. Cherish it, love it and be grateful.
No-one loves your more than your dog does. That’s something worthwhile right there!
How will you and your fur kids be spending Valentine’s Day?
