Weekend Woofs: Favorite Video Friday – A Romantic Dinner for Two

Hello everyone, this is Maia.

Everyone here is wishing you a happy (or at least not offensive, intrusive, overly sweet) Valentine’s Day. Mind you, I’m not allowed to eat chocolate. These hamsters… they could come and celebrate with me… I have ideas about dinner…
(Gah speaking, taking the keyboard away from Maia: I’m fond of hamsters and found this a hoot. It’s from the No Dog About It Blog. Enjoy!)
…ahwoof, yes, exactly. Enjoy!
Your Maia

If you already saw this posted on my Facebook page, I apologize, but I just could not resist sharing it once again. After all, it IS the day before the most romantic day of the year.

And, what could be more romantic than an Italian dinner at a restaurant with the one you love? Did I mention the gondola ride beforehand? Ooo la la!

I hope you all have a Valentine’s Day as romantic as these two. Just don’t stuff all the food into your cheeks, okay?

Happy Friday everyone!

This made the cold, cold winters friendlier. For us, all of this was an adventure.

However, there is always something missing when there are no pets around. So pets had to become part of the household again.
