February Challenge - Pet Valentines!

I thought Feb. might be a fitting month to celebrate our special love and admiration for pets -our own and others too, with photos based on a Valentine "greeting card" theme.
Our pets certainly personify devotion, love and loyalty. Their unique beauty and wide range of expressions and antics really lends itself to this, I think.

This could be any favourite photo.. doesnt nesessarily have to include hearts or flowers, traditional Valentine themes.
The pictures might speak for themselves. Or, an optional comment could be added. Funny, serious, wistful, even the fun and campy children's Valentine's messages.
And as Feb. is heart month.. after the 14th, they could be the Queens and Kings of our hearts. As they are every day and every month,

I'll have to look through my photos for others.. but just to kick this off, here's Basil from last year.
More Valentine Sweethearts?



Nothing Compares 2 U. :love: Be My Valentine! :love:

Not quite a valentine photo (I'll take one later), but this was taken just after Valentines day last year. Spoiled rotten, indeed. (Note the smile)

If you're alone, I'll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I'll be your shoulder. If you want a hug, I'll be your pillow. If you need to be happy, I'll be your smile. But anytime you need a friend, I'll just be me.

He's a happy boy! He was young (3 months, maybe) in that picture. He still has all his toys, and they're all still intact! Thank God he's a non-ripper.All that stuffing would drive me crazy. LOL
