What Valentine's Day means to me (Rob)

What Valentine's Day means to me: It means remembering everyone who touched my heart with love throughout my life. Tom is the love of my life and I married the best guy in the world. I love our 4 canine kids. 
Beautiful flowers Tom gave me for Valentine's Day
  This day also reminds me of the love for my family and my friends near and far- from those locally to as far away as the U.K., Germany, Japan, Canada and the Philippines. Friends we've made through fostering dogs, through taking trips. Old high school and college friends. Friends we work with, or live in our neighborhood. 
  Single people are surrounded by as much love as married people. Today reminds me of how fortunate I am to be connected to such wonderful people. If you give love, you receive love- and we should love, respect and accept everyone to make the world a better place. Happy Valentine's Day.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
