A Valentine!?! For ME?!?

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me - Zim!  Happy Valentine's Day to each and every one of you!

Did all of you see the Thundering Herd's blog post last Thursday?  They wrote an excellent commentary about the sled dog massacre that so many of us read in horror.  They made a GREAT case for retired sled dogs being rehomed and living wonderful lives.  And they posted a picture of one such pup ... Holly.  Sigh.  Holly with the shiny silvery fur and the foxy face and those deep chocolate eyes that a guy could just get lost in!  Anyway... I left a little comment on their post just asking if she's as gorgeous in person Siberian as she is in her photos ... and the next thing I knew ... well ... it went something like this:

There I was, just catching up on some work in the living room...

"Oh, yeah!  I've got you guys this time!!!"

...when I heard the email chime ring. I thought I'd see what had come in, so I hit the little switch at the bottom of my Mom's iPad ...

"Lemme just hit this button..."

...and look what came up!!! A Valentine! For ME! And it's from ... HOLLY!!!

Check it out:

A Valentine for me, from Holly!

And see down there in the lower right-hand corner?

"She signed it 'Love, Holly'!"

She says, "Love, Holly." Sigh! I couldn't help myself - I just had to lick her right on that beautiful black gumdrop nose!

I could just flip for her!

Can you blame me?  She's run the Iditarod and everything!  And now she's living in a wonderful home with three other Sibes - Rubi, Denali, Sprite.  She does some recreational scootering and sledding, likes all dogs and people, and is going to be trained as a therapy pup!  (Long-time readers - remember our cool Steelers scarves?  Her mom sent us those!)  I could go on and on - she's just so dreamy!  AND she's my Valentine!

I wonder if she'd like to share my sunbeam with me?
