happy valentine's day!

I haven't found the perfect image for today yet but wanted to be sure to wish you all a happy day and a few whisker-kisses.

thanks wikimedia commons {PD:Art}

(Later) Look!  I found this beautiful Sir Joshua Reynolds work:  "A Young Girl and her Dog," from 1780.  I see from the Wikipedia page that Reynolds was a proponent of the Grand Style, which sought idealization of the imperfect.  Well, don't we all. (How's that for a slick snapshot of an entire Royal Academy's reason for being?)
In any case, I can never call a dog's love imperfect.  So once more let me say Happy Valentine's Day to you and to all creatures, feathered, finned, furred and smooth-skinned, in your house.

I know what you mean.

These big occasions can mean a lot of pressure when we want to find something JUST right.

Love and licks, Winnie
