Top 10 reasons to ask your dog to be your Valentine

Valentine’s Day is almost here. Considering that it’s a day all about love, a lot of people don’t exactly love the holiday. In fact, some of you may be a bit anxious about it.

If dogs could send Valentines…

Honestly, someone should cut off my access to any and all pop culture, punny and/or topical Valentine’s Day cards on the Internet. I can’t get enough.

Yesterday alone (in honor of Galentine’s Day), I saw a ton of great ones and kept sharing them on Facebook and Twitter. Among them? DC-themed Valentines (I lost it at Total Ellipse of the Heart), good stuff from the Bluth family, Valentines for the history lovers out there (#6 is my favorite), and tributes to my Hunger Games Valentines. There’s something for everyone.

Anyway… I figured I might as well join in the fun. Without further ado, I present six Valentine’s Day sentiments from the dog:
Dog Valentine #1

Dog Valentine #2

Dog Valentine #3

Dog Valentine #4 

Dog Valentine #5

Dog Valentine #6

If your dog could send you a Valentine, what would it say?
