I wanted to wish everyone - human and fur - a wonderful Valentine's Day!!!

Today is always bittersweet for me....I can't believe that 14 years ago I saw my beloved ^Valentine^ on the day she was born.  We took her home 8 weeks later.  She was my "heart" dog and I will never, ever forget her....

And Happy Valentine's Day back atcha!  I had a dinner date and spent some good conversation time getting to know a guy I met over New Year's.  I was starting to think I was too old for romance, but that doesn't seem to be the case!  Comet has never seen me cuddle on the couch and didn't know what to think or do.  He was definitely confused!  I once had a Cattle Dog who bit my date when we got cozy!   Guess he thought I needed protection. 

Anyone have that problem?


Oh say, can you see?

OH YES, my dog screened my dates CAREFULLY when I started dating and would not let anyone NEAR me that she did not trust.  I need that dog now.  

Current dogs approve of my current companion.

Sounds like you had a really nice time Barbara....and I believe youi are "never" too old for romance.

I never had a problem with my dogs but, then again, when I used to date after moving out of my parent's house I used to leave my ^Jebu^ with my parents when I had a date over early in the relationship.  When I met DH he was one of the first to meet Jebu...and it was love at first sight....LOL....

I did always say that I would never have a relationship with any man that didn't like my dog....or dogs in general.  I did stop seeing one guy because of that...he just wasn't a dog person.
