It is St. Valentine's Day. A day for sweethearts to express their love. But you don't need to have a sweetheart to celebrate Valentine's Day. Share a Valentine with your friend, your kennel mates, your dog park buddies, or any animal or human whose friendship you enjoy, or whom you notice needs some love in their life!
I pawed this Valentine poem for my human, K, using one of her favorite songs:
When I see you with bones, my tummy sings in delight. You love me, yes you do, and I love you lots, too. You give me toys and treats, and long walks in the park. I am a lucky dog, for being in your heart.
Nothing trumps Love. Nothing can conquer Love. Love is Eternal. Love is Omnipotent. Love Is. And with the power of Love we can defeat anything. Let the light of Love shine through in your hearts, your mind, your thoughts, your actions, your deeds, and your speech. There are so many unhappy and lonely animals and humans in the World whose hearts would sing with just the smallest gesture of love. So be generous in sharing and giving your Love, for the power of a kind word, a kind act, a kind gesture, is amazing.
I shall end this Valentine's Day post with a lovely poem entitled "Love's Philosophy," written by Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822):
The fountains mingle with the riverBe lucky in love. Happy Valentine's Day! I hope I get more than one Valentine because the more Valentines I have, the more boxes of chocolate covered yummy bunnies I will get! I'm just sayin'...
And the rivers with the ocean,
The winds of Heaven mix for ever
With a sweet emotion;
Nothing in the world is single,
All things by a law divine
In one spirit meet and mingle -
Why not I with thine?
