One of the greatest things about owning a dog must be the unconditional love they give you. They are just as excited to see you after 5 minutes apart as they are after 5 hours apart, and there is nothing better than walking in the door to get smothered in kisses.
I do get some of this from my fiancé, of course, but nothing compares to the carefree innocence of a dog’s love. They don’t have bills to pay or jobs to stress about. They don’t have think about what to make for dinner, or whether they’re running late for an appointment. They just get to eat, sleep, play, and love you.
And in return, it’s easy to love them unconditionally. Even if they pee on the floor or wake you up at 6am, it’s hard to stay mad at them for long when they run up to you with a toy to play fetch, or cuddle up next to you on the bed.
So this Valentine’s Day, I am lucky enough to have two loves — and I could not love them more.
