Puppy Love this Valentine's Day
Posted on: February 08 2016
Love is in the air. Hearts? Flowers? Chocolates? Romantic suppers for two or simply curling up on the sofa? We’ve got plenty of gift inspiration for dog lovers including these rather fun Victoria Armstrong mugs or doggy doorstops from
When it comes to spoiling the ones you love on Valentine’s Day, don’t forget to include that special something for the Fido in your life. With roughly 24% of all households in the UK owning at least one dog, there’s already a lot of love out there for our four-legged friends but, well, everyone likes to feel special on Valentine’s Day, don’t they?
Pamper your furry friend with a new lead or dog bed. A new toy or perhaps a smart raincoat?
If there’s no set of perfect paws in your life or you’re still looking for the right match, then why not take a trip to your local animal shelter? Here at Muddy Paws HQ, we love this heartwarming story of Valentine’s Day doggy speed dating in New Zealand where potential dog owners are being invited to visit their local animal shelters in Auckland to cuddle up to pups looking for homes and maybe come away with their ‘furever’ love. A great idea which our very own Battersea Dogs and Cats Home tried last year with huge success when they held an organised matchmaking event for wannabe dog owners and resident homeless pups.
Whatever you choose to do this Valentine’s Day, make sure that your beloved pooch gets something special too – take a family ‘paw’trait, share a lovely walk together, perhaps have an extra treat or two and of course, make time for plenty of cuddles. After all, as the American humourist Josh Billings wrote, “A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.”
