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)

lol! I think he'll forgive me, Jiorji Basil actually adores cuddling up with his stuffed animals. His little friends I call them..

Beautiful pictures Spirit and Rick!
I love how totally delighted your dog looks, Spirit.

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

Prin: ROFL @ the hug pic!!

lol there's no winner (other than those who participated of course!). The challenge is being creative and getting your pets to cooperate.

And even if we didnt get the right shot for a challenge, we all win the absolute pleasure of viewing such wonderful photos of the beautiful pets on display.

I just posted this one in the walk down memory lane, but I thought of a Hallmark greeting card for this pic (this one is for you Frenchy):


Time for a sexy party!
