I see LOVE today!

I see LOVE today!

Well, now we have it. TODAY IS VALENTINE’S DAY! They say this is a day for love, fondness and affections. They say this is a day for the hopeless romantics among us, and for those individuals (Pets Included…) who are special in our lives. You can’t escape the “Warm & Fuzzy” feelings this day evokes in each of us. Just this morning, the National News reported that Americans will spend an estimated $17.3 Billion dollars on Valentine’s Day gifts this year. This is a good thing, isn’t it?? Well… I certainly thought it was. Then, this report also highlighted the many common mistakes made by singles & couples, each Valentine’s Day. Poor planning, poor time management and poor decision making; appear to be the culprits here.

Look, you know that I am a Dachshund. I am a happy pet, living in a happy home. BUT, even I HAVE OBSERVED some of these “What Were You Thinking?” moments over the years… In hopes of helping anyone reading this blog, let me just point out a few items as a “Public Service Announcement”:    1) Shopping at a “CVS” for fine Jewelry, romantic Gifts and select European Chocolates is a cry for help. (It doesn’t matter you have a 20% Off Coupon…)    2) It’s OK to skip getting a Valentine’s Day Card. (I have one word for you: HALLMARK…)    3) A supermarket bundle of Flowers, with extra, extra “Baby’s Breath” is JUST as good as a dozen, long-stemmed Roses.    4) Going out to Dinner without a reservation on Valentine’s Day Evening, is not going to be a problem. (How crowded could it possibly be?…)    5) The “Complete 3-Stooges” Collector’s Edition – DVD set, is NOT a recipe for an evening of passion… Well, each year Valentine’s Day mistakes are made and each year apologies are gladly accepted. This is what makes us, and Valentine’s Day so special. Go tell someone you love them. Always remember, “It’s the ThDaschunds - Heartought That Counts” and IValentine Ants stand by my opinion!

Valentine's Day 1

Groundhog Day 2014

NOTE: Commentary By Knuckles “The Wonder Dog”

Is That My "Shadow" I See?

Is That My “Shadow” I See?

         Well, now we have it. SIX MORE WEEKS OF WINTER!  This as declared by the famous Groundhog, “Punxsutawny Phil” down there in  Pennsylvania. All the Officials claim he saw his shadow, meaning a longer winter ahead. ( I think all the TV lights and cameras certainly helped produce a shadow!) It’s not a stretch to figure out WHY the Groundhog declared more winter this year, as compared with his missed forecast from last year. PHIL WAS AFRAID TO BE WRONG AGAIN! (You may recall, that we here in NH,  got more snow than we could measure last year; RIGHT AFTER he declared an “Early Spring”… )

Look, I am a Dachshund. I spend a great deal of time outdoors every day. Given the months of frigid temperatures, overuse of the term “Polar Vortex” and the tons of snow we received early-on this season; it’s not a stretch to expect 6 MORE WEEKS OF WINTER around here. I stand by my opinion, WITHOUT all the fanfare, from down there in Gobbler’s Knob!
