Precious time remains between now and Valentine’s Day. Sure, you could get your sweetheart flowers. I bet they’d never see that one coming. Or maybe you’ll pick up chocolates. Real original.This Valentine’s Day, why not take tips from the love-pros – dogs! Here are a few easy steps from Eko and Penny that are sure to sweep your significant other off their feet.

Step 1: Stare at your date from an uncomfortably close distance until they scratch you on the head

Step 2: Give your Valentine a hug. Get a running start. 20 mph should be sufficient

Step 3: Continue to hug your pal, even if they say “Love you too, but maybe go easy on the hug.”

Step 4: Stand outside your date’s front  door. Whine at them to let you in

Step 5: If they don’t let you in, surely it must be some kind of mistake. Keep knocking on the door until the bum wakes up and agrees to take you to the beach so he can get some peace and quiet

Hm, you know what? In retrospect, this is actually terrible advice. I guess some signs of affection are best left to our pups. Never fear, we have a backup plan that never fails.

Step one through infinity: Look cute and smile

Works every time! At least on me

So, the good news is your pet loves you. The bad news is that if you came to this blog for serious relationship advice you’re in more trouble than I can possibly imagine!

Comments for Five Steps for a Perfect Valentine’s Day

  1. that are great tips! 20 mph hugs are something you will remember for some time, right?

  2. LOL, I dunno…seems like good advice from my perspective though at my age, maybe 20 mph is a ‘tad’ fast! 🙂

  3. paws2smile says:

    Hahaha! Hilarious! And perfect pics to go with it. 🙂 I am having a hard time picking my favorite one out of the bunch!

  4. Connie Taylor says:

    “Dear Abby” could not have given better advice

  5. Shalini says:

    Love these two kids!!!

  6. I don’t know about the 20 mph hugs. With dogs that size, I’d end up in the hospital with either casts on both legs or in traction. I’ll settle for the numerous sloppy kisses and nuzzles. Maybe even a gnawed hoof dropped at my feet. Khoi and Neeka can be very attentive when they want to be….or want something.
    And I give that stuffed puppy five minutes before being eviscerated. I hope it’s not for Emily

  7. Those two pups know you SO WELL! HAHAHA

    Pam and Sam

  8. Cupcake says:

    Thanks, kids! This advice is perfect for me (except 4 and 5 because I’m not allowed outside by myself). The rest of the ideas will work fine, as long as Mom doesn’t think it’s just another normal day….

    Love and licks,
    Cupcake

    Penny, you are adorable with your stuffie!

  10. Abbie says:

    LOL! As I was reading the dog advice, I was thinking, “Gosh, is someone really did some of these things, they would pretty much seem like a total creep! And yet the dogs do it all. the. time. and we aren’t weirded out one bit!” At least, I’m not. Loved those last two photos; so adorable! Eko is so regal, and Penny looks so innocent…something I know she is usually not.

  11. You’re writing really funny. I love to read your blog. Have a happy valentines day with your loving dogs and family. Greetings from Norway.

  12. No place better to be but here with eko n penny to see what they are up to today.
    HAPPY VALENTINES DAY EKO N PENNY.
    MUCH LOVE TO U BOTH.

  13. Kismet says:

    I asked the dogs and they said that nothing says “I love you” more than a deaded squirrel on the floor.

  14. HaHa. great tips for sure! Have a great VD.

  15. Donna says:

    Love this! Although all joking aside, dogs absolutely know more about love than the majority of us. If only we could unconditionally love and accept like they do, we would solve 99% of the world’s problems. Seriously!
    After 49 years, I have finally gotten it through my hard head. The best relationship is the one with my dogs. They always accept me with no judgement and are not shy when showing how much they missed me when I return from taking the trash out. Life would be very boring and sad without them. I just don’t think I will ever find anyone that can measure up or compare. Happy Valentines Day to your whole family!

  16. the look cute and smile works on me too.
