Valentine’s Day: you either hate it or love it. I happen to love it. Why? Because on Valentine’s Day my daily dose of kisses from mum increases and I get more food than usual (actual quote from mum: ‘because it’s the day of love’). Last year I was still a puppy, and Valentine’s Day was in my opinion more something for grown-ups. But this year, since I am almost 21 in human years, I thought it was time for me to find a Valentine.
But where do I start this quest for a Valentine? I could go to the dog park and try to meet new dogs or I could eat rocks and end up in the hospital to meet a hot nurse. I discussed these options with mum, but she was not a fan of my ideas (which I thought was weird).
I decided to host a contest to let the potential Valentines come to me. This way I would not hurt myself by eating rocks and I would also avoid awkward moments in the dog park. The winner of the contest would be my Valentine for 2015. Sounds like a perfect plan, right?

At first I was worried that not many dogs would enter my contest. Maybe everyone had already found a Valentine? But there was no need to worry. When the contest ended, over 30 different dogs had entered my contest! Let me show you a few of them.
Ebbe (@ebbethedachshund) was the first one who entered my contest and he looked super handsome in his red bow-tie. I loved the dreamy expression in his eyes, like he is dreaming about our first date and how perfect it would be.
Then we have Yogi (@yogi_doxie) and his nephew Lucky (@candyfire39). Yogi looked like a real ladies’ man in his animal printed tie and red harness. And then those blue eyes… So dreamy! Lucky really knows how to work his long body; the way the sun shines on his fur, incredible! And his intense stare was what completed this photo for me.
I knew as I was looking through all the entries that picking only one Valentine was going to be difficult. Especially when I saw Eva’s (@littlemissevagirl) entry:
That cushion. That headband. That dress. O MY GOD. How cute can a doxie possibly look?
As I scrolled further through the entries, my chocolate brown eyes fell in love with two dogs wearing the same headpiece:
Then I saw Sammy’s (@lindatrex) entry. My gosh, how hot can a hot dog be? Sammy sure knew how to seduce me. Maybe he had been spying on me for the past few weeks, how else could he have known I love flowers and I ADORE food?
And then this happened:
Derry (@myawkwarddog), the most awkward dog around, had entered my contest by posting a photo of him being handcuffed. HANDCUFFED. Dear Derry, I just wanted to tell you that I love you and your way of life, but this fifty-shades-of-grey-stuff just is not really my thing. I must admit that you look really hot though, I adore your sexy baby blue bow-tie, it really adds some extra ‘tension’ to the photo. Good job Derry, good job.
These two hot dogs are true gentleman, and they are showing the world what love really is about; the heart. My heart was the one who had to choose the winner, and it was time to announce the winner.
