    Good morning and Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you. No flowers or candy being received here! This will be a big day for man, especially with V Day being on Saturday.

    Snowing and blustery here this morning.

    Good Morning, and a Very Happy Valentines Day!
    I have asked Mom to be my Valentine. Kat did not like the idea, because her beau has been so busy training. She is afraid he will forget all about her on Valentines Day.

    Good morning, B&M&L and everyone! Happy V D to all. Wait! That doesn’t sound right, Heh, heh. Well, looks like the eastern 2/3 of the country needs to button up their overcoats. Stay warm and safe. Westerners, don’t forget the sunscreen.
    Hey to Liz and Ruby.
    Have a satiated Saturday all :)

    Interesting picture. Yes, happy Valentine’s Day.

    It’s windy and snowing here.

    Good morning all.

    Greetings!

    Happy Valentine’s Day to all!

    HRH,B, Today’s GOOGLE Doodle is a cute one.

    More snow in the future of my neck of the woods, and LOTS more where the Royals reside.

    I love that LouLou and Princess Sammie are the calendar girls for February. The cutest of Valentines those two.

    I am wondering what Teddy RR will be giving his gal Zeta for Valentine’s Day. I know she already has his heart…

    Good morning here I am while the sun is up! I had to get up to check on my patient. When I brought her breakfast, she got up on all fours and has been staring at it for 10 minutes now. At least she can stand.

    We are supposed to be getting some of that cold stuff in a couple of days. Hope it snows!

    Will you all be my Valentine’s?

    Whoo hoo, ML
    HOH will be glad to.
    Good to hear from you today,
    HOpe Macy’s ouchies go away.

  11. Zeusiköv
    9:12 am on February 14th, 2015

    I would like to be Macy’s valentine. And Princess Sammyieand Loulou’s.
    We have two calendars hanging up. The downstairs one has Sammie and Loulou, and the one up in our office has The Giant loving up puppies!!! I love them both! {Sigh}. I just love LOVE. <3

    We are still having some snow, and the temps tomorrow will be sub-zero, with -30 wind chill. Ain’t spring yet! However, February is now half gone, which is a good thing.

    Reading Keep Quiet, by Lisa Scottoline. She said in her remarks that she will write one novel a year, featuring her all girl law firm. Those are her best, IMHO. Teddy, I know your pa is a fan of L.S. Did he read Keep Quiet? We give it a thumbs up. Also have the 2nd Miss Julia sitting here to be ready next. It is titled Miss Julia Takes Over.

    HOH, what do you think of her first book?

  13. Herd of Hounds
    9:37 am on February 14th, 2015

    B&M&L, not quite finished but are enjoying it. A good mixture of humor, a sassy mouth (mom likes that), and plot movement (it rolls right along). Our branch library doesn’t have all of them but the library system does so we’ll order the ones as we need them.

  14. O'Howlers
    9:39 am on February 14th, 2015

    We are getting snow today and tonight, but nothing like the blizzard that will be hitting Tupper and Gilly and The Wrottens. Sheesh!!! What are you guys doing with all that snow?
    We are getting very cold temps with high winds though. For tonight/tomorrow: Winds Saturday night and Sunday will cause snow to blow/drift and cause near blizzard/whiteout conditions at times. Northwest winds are expected to be sustained 20-30mph, with gusts over 50mph. This combined with temperatures in the single digits and low teens will create dangerous wind chills.
    Even worse Sunday night/early Monday morning with air temperatures below zero and wind chills in the negative 30s.
    Yikes!

    9:40 am on February 14th, 2015

    Good morning, but not real good. We planned to go to Sammie’s house. The storm is supposed to have blowing snow and whiteouts and they say no unnecessary travel. Well, this might be necessary just because we want to go.

  16. O'Howlers
    9:49 am on February 14th, 2015

    MP&LL’s Mom!! Be careful!!!!

    Our folks are going out in that windy snow tonight. They have tickets for a Valentines Benefit for River House PA, a Wounded Warriors Project. It is a spaghetti (gasp!) dinner, with a band and an auction of some really cool items. For example, there is fly fishing lessons, and yoga, and massages, and kayaking/boating/biking.

    ML, I am glad to hear that Miss Macy is on the road to tip top. I wonder if Mr. Redbone Hound has something in store today for her.

    As for being your Valentine, you are in my heart 24/7/365, girl!

    O’H, we read one of the auction items wrong and wondered how you teach a fish to fly. But then Pookey (being the oldest) corrected it. She’s just a stick in the mud, but we love sticks :)

    Good morning all, and Happy Palentine’s Day – that’s what we celebrate – all our pals who are in our hearts.

    Yes, we are supposed to get hammered by another (sigh) snowstorm. Most people are swarming the grocery stores to get milk, bread, and eggs. Mama says she will go and get kibble and coffee, and we will be all set. Different priorities, you know?

  23. B.Stover
    10:28 am on February 14th, 2015

    I found the picture posted today at Wikipedia. It’s the Shrine of St. Valentine in Whitefriar Street Carmelite Church in Dublin, Ireland.

    Rose: Today’s Google Doodle is cute.

    Also from Wikipedia: Valentine’s Day first became associated with romance in Chaucer’s poem, “Parlement of Foules,” in 1382: “For this was on St. Valentine’s Day, when every bird cometh there to choose his mate.” (It’s probably not referring to Feb. 14.) It was written to celebrate the first anniversary of the engagement of King Richard II to Ann of Bohemia.

    Wose, Pop found that article yesterday, too. Mom sent it to Spence, because it reminded us of Iggy.

    We agree, T & G. Can’t run out of dog food or coffee.

    That story of Sissy was heartwarming. It is amazing that the dog could sniff her way 2 miles to find her person, plus not get hit by a car during her travels. Could have had a much different outcome.

    Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!
    Thanks for all the Stories and Links.

    Min-Pin, I would be your Valentine, but What Would Mr. Redbone Say?
    It sounds like you are feeling better but You Must Eat…soon as Mr Redbone stops by we bet you will perk right up.

    Wose: A Little Dog with Big Love makes for a very Nice Story. Sniff.

    Cawfee & Dog Food…the Royals, as usual…have their Priorities Straight.

    Drat! Missed LizF again!

  33. Siber's Mom
    12:45 pm on February 14th, 2015

    Stover, Thank you for all the information you posted on the St. Valentine’s Day picture. I like the picture and was wondering about it.

    Howler’s, Very good article! This is what I want for Valentine’s Day…for Team Tsuga to keep on doing what they are so successfully doing. “The Fastest Team of Siberians in the World”

    Wose, Nice article but sniff

    Macy, Please feel better.

    Warm and sunny here today.

    Wasn’t he wrong last year too?

  35. Junior
    12:51 pm on February 14th, 2015

    Kat: I’d be honored if you’d be my valentine and help me look for my eyebrows. Pancho and Lefty say they heard my eyebrows are running from the law and skipped town. I may never find them again—my eyebrows not the Thieves—but we can have fun looking (said as I bob the light patches of fur above my eyes up and down).

  36. B.Stover
    12:57 pm on February 14th, 2015

    Kat, you are sooooooo lucky. Junior is one handsome guy! And those eyebrows!

    1:01 pm on February 14th, 2015

    Rio: This isn’t so much an invitation to be our valentine as it is a statement: We intend on filling your dance card. That, or eating your dance card. Time to cut a valentine rug, pug.

  41. Siber's Mom
    1:02 pm on February 14th, 2015

    Whitey-Lance, I would be more than honored to be your Valentine. I was thinking of asking you. You are my first pick from the Snowhook Kennel because you remind me of someone who would have loved to do your walkabout. Besides that, you are very handsome.

  42. Thieves!
    1:05 pm on February 14th, 2015

    Siber-Maw: Whitey-Lance can’t answer right now. He swooned. He thunked. He hasn’t come to (sorry, B). Rest assured, these are all good things.

    The Snowhook dogs make great Valentines. So do Princess Sammie and Loulou.

    Mike Ellis was surprised to find his team in the top ten at the halfway mark of the Yukon Quest. I love it! Go Team Tsuga!

    Masquers: Lovely cake!

    BStover: A parliament of fowls would probably do less harm than the parliament of fools that make the rules in this country.

    Rio Jr.: I love watching the light patches of fur above your eyes bob up and down.

    It has finally warmed up today and the sun is shining brightly. I’m going for a walk to meet s i l for lunch at the Chinese restaurant.

    Mom and the DDD have their Alaska suitcases already packed and ready. Clothes and snacks all acounted for. Oops, may be a problem…Snooow (80% chance) on MOnday, 50% on Tuesday, Wed. has temps of 28*F for a hign and 11*f for a low. Sheesh, can’t win for loosing :)

  63. c.hobbit
    2:23 pm on February 14th, 2015

    Why does Beau have a harness and not Rio?

    Good day all. Housekeeping hint of the day: every once in a while move furniture around and change the energy of the room. Also to find hidden treasure. Unfortunately my hidden treasure tend to be cat toys, dog fur and candy wrappers {{{sigh}}} instead of money and jewelry but someone else might be luckier. Maybe do this more than once a year (thank goodness Plunderer visits keep me on schedule).

    I still hope to be someone’s valentine someday….

    I have 16 days to train Sadie to stay off the couch. There might be some resistance involved. It started when I was fostering Ikette and was holding the puppy in my lap. Then it restarted when the kittens started getting on the couch. I know she thought that what is fair for others is fair for her. Now kittens are gone.

    Taking bets on who will win this? Are you for Team Sadie or Team Hobbit?

    All these wonderful photos are a great way to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

    Dawson, Thanks for the interesting article by Seb. I have always thought of scratching from a race as just a part of long-distance sled dog racing. It happens. I always feel bad for the mushers that have to scratch. It takes so much work and money to get to the starting line of a race.

    Hobbit, I love you like you were my own Harris, but I’m on Team Sadie. I commandeered the loveseat shortly after my mother, Annabelle passed away. Recently, I made a play for the couch, too. Success! Where does my Lady sit?—on the arm of the couch. Give me and S-A-D-I-E! Sadie! Ole Doc reporting from underneath Bellie Button.

    Too bad Joar had to scratch. He went out fast from the get-go. Maybe too fast. I like him because he is Norwegian. Hugh Neff admits to having gone out too fast from the beginning and he is starting to fall behind a bit more. Damon Tedford, on the other hand, is gaining on the leaders. Mike Ellis in 9th! Hope the weather does not warm up too much for the Siberians.

    We’ll soon be getting another member of the pack, named Dan, as soon as some of this snow goes away. Dan is 18 months old, and a male. He and Mac WILL get along. I am getting a lot of help training him and he is smart… a child of divorce, but smart and beautiful. I will get pictures as soon as I get a camera Understand..this week anyhow Zoe

    Zoe, I know Siber would be excited to meet the Newf pack, Melanie, and Dan. He considered them all good friends on this side of the Bridge.

    I am excited for you getting a new member of your family. I cannot wait for pictures. I have always loved Newfs but this country is not the climate for them.

    CHobbit: Harris will always be a second-hand sled dog because that is how she, like other rescues in the kennel, came to us. AJ rescued her from a very bad situation. Not just bad, it was the very most bad. He won’t tell you this because it is not his way, but he helped save other members of the nation within that same day and found them good homes. But, Harris was his from the first sniff and whiff. Will Harris run for the team? That is the hope. She just has to stop being the Giant’s shadow first. He is such a softy.

    More to CHobbit: We here are all on Team Sadie. Please add us to the tally.

    Sorry Hobbit, but we here are throwing our votes to Sadie. Sofas are for dogs, also chairs, and love seats and beds. We do share with Barb, however.

    Can’t wait to see Dan, Jr. I bet he is related to Zoe’s dogs.

    Zoe: Dan the smart and beautiful will join your household and he’ll be just in time for washing the winter away, a springtime Newf and a youngster, to boot! Hope Mac likes him and it sounds like he WILL.

  98. Tupper and Gilly

    Zoe – that is some of the best news we have heard in a long time. We are sooooo happy for you and Macaroon.

    Hobbit – we vote for you

    Bwwwaaahahahaha. Snort, giggle, oh stop. We’re killing us.
    Seriously, Hobbit. Dogs and couches are just made to go together.

    7:08 pm on February 14th, 2015

    CHobbit!…It is a well known fact that you are a push-over…snort!…It’s Sadie all the way!

    Hobbit, if dogs were not supposed to get on furniture, why were furniture covers invente2d? HMMM?
    Zoe, cannot wait to meet Dan (a great name). Darah at 25 months is just beginning to settle down, except fot waltzing with mom sometimes.

  102. Wookie's and Teddy's Dad
    7:49 pm on February 14th, 2015

    Zoe. That is great news. Dan will fit in very nicely in a terrific tradition of Newfs in your household.

    Barb — I haven’t read the latest Lisa Scottoline yet but I have it and it is high on my list. I agree with you that I like the Rosato law firm ones the best; her stand alones can be a bit hit or miss.

    Need to sign off. Someone else wants to use the computer again.

    Me and my gal had the best Valentines Day. I took her to Mount Vernon first (it is very dog friendly there) and then we went to Alexandria for a nice walk about, including the Alexandria waterfront. We also got some special attire in Alexandria for Valentines Day as well. Yeah, and we brought the old folks along with us too.

    Last, but not least, this is us at Mount Vernon sharing a stick down in the newly developed area at Mount Vernon where they have some agricultural stuff demonstrated. And some sheep too (but not visible in the photo). Yum. Did I already say how pet friendly they were there. And we got to get adored by gobs of tourists too. It just doesn’t get any better than that.

    8:27 pm on February 14th, 2015

    Oh, I almost forgot. This is to send a very special Valentines’ greetings to my blog BFF, Ms. Wose. I had gotten you a card too but my dad (ahem) forgot to mail it in time, so it will be arriving a bit late.

  113. Wose-the small and meek
    8:30 pm on February 14th, 2015

    Teddy, I love your pictures! Ms. Zeta is a very lucky gal to have a guy like you! Sending you Valentine’s Day kisses and tummies.

    Wyatt, I am honored to be your Valentine.

    Macy is still under the quilt, but she did eat her dinner. I hope she will not spit out her giraffe pill tonight. I left her outside in the warm sunshine all day and it seems to have done her some good. Cold weather is coming, though, and I don’t want to leave her outside while I am at work.

    Dawson, thanks, back atcha.

    We hope everyone had a wonderful day. Exciting news about lil Dan.

    I know that Hobbit is a strict and stern mama, so I vote Team Hobbit.

    {whispering} Momma made me say that so Hobbit will still let her room at the Hobbit Hotel. I don’t really believe it.

  126. Barb, Maggie and Lucy
    10:13 pm on February 14th, 2015

    Yes, Happy Birthday octuply times and Happy Anniversary 46 times.

    Going to have a little bitty bowl of ice cream and then call it a night.

    We just took filling Rio’s valentines dance card to a whole new level. Lefty and Rio danced the final dance scene from Dirty Dancing. I would’t believe Rio could lift Lefty over his flat head like that if I hadn’t seen it with my own to eyes.

  130. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:05 pm on February 14th, 2015

    Gasp!…Wheeze!….Lefty needs to go on a major diet…gurgle!…Or at least empty his pockets before dancing…sniff!

  131. Pancho!
    11:09 pm on February 14th, 2015

    Rio: The dog jacket always adds ten pounds. Or, is the kamera I procured and stuffed into the pockets of said jackets that add ten pounds? I forget. I do know that the best part of the night was when Rio declared, “Nobody puts Lefty in a corner.” That was my signal to start dancing.
