This is the day of Valentine’s, sweet love notes, heart shaped boxes of candy, and red roses galore. Lover’s meet in restaurants for dinner of candlelight and holding hands and steaming entrees of whatever is good to the palate. For the more romantic and adventuress, a poetic verse may be recited and followed with a lingering kiss and caress. How sweet.
You can keep your candy and flowers and sweet caress, I prefer the kind of unconditional love I receive every day of the year with my girl, Maggie. She expects nothing in return, no demands, no services rendered. She loves me because that’s what she does, and I love and adore her to the moon and back.
Here’s to all the single guys and gals who do not have a significant other to come knocking with the perfect sappy Valentine card and have been sitting at home sad and depressed over this seemingly hopeless situation…adopt!! Get your sad self down to the nearest animal shelter and find the newest love of your life that will last furever and forever, Amen.
Dog, cat, it doesn’t matter! They both have more love inside to give you than you could ever imagine. You can hang around your house or apartment in your old ratty robe or your most comfortable sweats; they don’t care. All they want is your love, attention, care, food, and water. Makeup…they don’t care. Shaved or unshaved…they don’t care. They just want your presence!
Maggie and Jonnie Katt have been my saving grace. My family, the loves of my life, my best friends. They don’t judge, they don’t yell, but they do occasionally take the remote. You can work with that.
Don’t wait for the Princess or the Knight in shining armor to arrive. Adopt a pet and your life will be filled with more love than you can possibly imagine.
