Happy Valentines Day

Most of the time, I believe that Valentines Day is highly over rated.
Then there are times when Hubby surprises me and puts the "awww" back in our relationship.
Because money’s a little tight this year, we decided just to exchange cards and get a big box of candy.
He bought me a card.  I bought him a card.  He bought me a big box of chocolates and a small box of chocolates that were a gift from the puppies.
I bought him kisses and M&M’s.
But then we went above and beyond . . .
He cleaned the house.  He did the laundry.  He did the dishes . . . all weekend! 
Then . . .
He surprised me with dinner out even though he hates going out to eat on Valentines Day. 
Even though I planned to surprise him with a special dinner at home.
After 26 years together, he can still surprise me.
Awwwww . . .

    Pam, it sounds like you had a wonderful Valentine\’s Day – you deserve it gal!!Mine started out great – we went to Mass, had a Valentine\’s Day lunch at a fav restaurant with 10 of our friends. Had bought a raffle ticket at church in the a.m. and that evening I got a call that I had won the wine basket – full of wine, jewelry shower stuff, candles, et. etc. etc.Ok, so far so good – on Wednesday, Luke our beautiful black lab, stopped eating and drinking. At 10 1/2 years, he had slowed down a lot, but still went on daily walks with me, although shorter and shorter. To make a sad long strory shorter – we had to put him down on Thursday afternoon. He was bleeding from the nose and had other indiation of a tumor in his head – we are heartbroken. I know you understand because you went thru it last year with Blackie. We have had a lab in the house for 20 1/2 years and it just doesn\’t seem right without one. But at our age, we don\’t feel it would be right to get another one because they need a lot of exercise and playtime. So enjoy your two big dogs – in my book there is nothing that can compare to a big dog whose heart is even bigger !

    Oh, Dori, I\’m so sorry to hear about Luke!! It is an awful thing to have them there one day and gone the next. And then to find out that they\’ve been sick for a while and just didn\’t want you to know. It\’s just too painful to ever explain. I\’m all teary eyed thinking of it. I understand about the hesitation to get another one and the unbearableness (is that a word?) of not having one around. The click of the nails on the floor. Passing by their favorite spot. Awwwww . . . I know it isn\’t the same, but you are welcome to borrow Luci (and Rocky because they are inseparable) any time you want. As a matter of fact, my next post will be Luci and Rocky related . . . with photos! Big hugs and puppy kisses to you and the whole family. Again, I\’m soooo sorry for your loss.
