“My heart is your home & there you’ll live forever!”

For her, this was Valentine’s Day. ~~~~~ I lost my pet German Shepherd ‘Dollar’ many years ago. But there’s not one day I don’t miss him. I believe,
This post is my tribute to all our furred friends, who’ve left us but live in our hearts forever. This post is for Dollar. Valentine’s day may much be about daisies and pawprints and not roses and kisses. So what’s your Valentine’s day ritual? ~~~~~ This short story was originally featured last year on Candles Online.

Valentine’s day is about appreciating them who make your life better, happier, worthwhile. And that isn’t limited to humans.
