The we will snuggled down on the couch and watch Treasure Buddies. Schooner and Skipper love watching the all of the Buddies movies. Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Would love the cat package. My crew will get cooked chicken thighs and each a catnip mouse for a special treat. Thanks

  • Our dogs will get homemade dog treats and special meals that day. We have 3 dogs – all three were throw aways. We made each one a part of our family.

  • Well We have 2 small dogs , a pekinese & a pug , 5 cats so I will indulge my sweeties
    with some extra treats , My real Valentine mission is to find a few smaller feral cat colonies in our town , We a few large colonies that are known , altered & cared for by
    wonderful volunteers , my concern is the smaller groups that are not altered , So far
    I found one group that live behind a shopping center , they are fed by people that work there & have a plastic container for the cats to sleep in but they are not spayed / neutered , I asked very nicely , I will be in touch with Animal Birth Control , Who will then come in w / humane traps , have the cats altered & rerelease , Its tough because the persons somewhat caring for the cats are well meaning but that next step needs to happen before kitten season , So too all & all pets , Happy Valentines Day !
    May everyone be loved and cared for !

    Thank you for the chance to win! We’d love the cat bundle. Our CRF kitty would love the fountain. We have one downstairs and if we win, we could have one upstairs too! Thanks again!

  • Suzanne Smith

    I’d love to win the cat package for my four cats! For Valentine’s Day, my boyfriend and are probably going to stay in, relax and snuggle with our fur children.

  • This year my puppy Nelson is my valentine! He’s the sweetest, cutest, smartest toy poodle in the world (at least I think so). We plan to spend Valentines day playing and snuggling.

    Thank you for this contest. If we win we want the dog basket :-)

  • Lori Kennedy

    Our lovely cat, Frodo-Of-The-Shire Kennedy-Roark is showered with love every day, but on Valentine’s Day he’ll get a whole can of his favorite salmon dinner.

  • We have a weinerful life! We have two doxies: Sally Ann (6yrs), Charlie (5months) and one Chihuahua (a doxie mascot), Luna Ann (5yrs). We will be taking our dogs out to a doggie valentine’s day dinner(four course meal for dog’s of course) and another valentine’s day social party this weekend. We would love to submit for the dog basket.

  • Kathy

    We want to win the doggie bag. We have two poodles.

  • Nsteinke

    I have two cats-Leija and Lucy- and their big dog sister-Kelda Bernadette .they will be wearing their Valentine dresses and getting an extra treat

  • Cragle

    We have a boxer and 2 inside cats (sisters from the same liter). They are from the animal shelter! Our boxer’s birthday is on Feb. 13th and to celebrate we are having a puppy party for Valentine’s day/birthday for all the neighborhood pups on Feb. 14th. We have homemade treats and party hats! All his gifts will be donated to the shelter for the other pups that do not have a forever home yet. We would love to win the dog basket!

  • olivia rubin

    I would like to win the dog package. My chocolate lab is my valentine, not because her chocoalte kisses are calories/fat free, but because she has shown me how to be alive again. she is my service dog, and is the love of my life.

  • I’m giving my dog Luna extra love and attention on Valentines day because her big brother Frisbee just died 2 weeks ago and we both miss him so much that we need each other more than ever. She would love some new things for sure, as I’m donating Frisbee’s belongings to a shelter. No matter who wins this prize will be very happy!

  • Beth

    Made my dogs special treats today. Although we have a cat, I’d rather win the dog basket.

  • apollo

    My mommy & daddy both work & have night school, so we’re celebrating Valentines Day early :) mommy says we’re all going to go to a dog friendly restaurant this wknd & something about me getting a “special bday gift” I’m excited!

  • Annie MacKeigan

    I will be making homemade Valentine treats for my 3 pups and their neighborhood friends. They could definately use a new leash and a drinking fountain. Fingers and toes crossed.

  • Kristie

    We would love to win the doggy give-away!! My two rescue lab mixes, Charlie and Chloe, are military brats! They will be spending their day with their daddy and I here in Okinawa, Japan, where we are stationed with the Air Force. We’ll probably hit up te beach for a quick romp in the East China sea, followed by a spritz by the hose in the back yard, lots of napping on the couch, and some special peanut butter pup cookies that Mommy makes for them on special occasions! Japan isn’t very big dog friendly, so it’s hard to fun fun snacks and surprises for them here, so I’m sure they would love this gift!!! Thanks for considering them!!

  • Sammie

    My feline fur-child and I will be snuggling in the recliner this Valentine’s Day. He’ll get some extra special treats and lots of loving. We would definitely like the cat bundle.

  • Sabra Janssen

    My first Valentine’s Day with Hudson! I plan to take him to the local dog park on Valentine’s Day then a scheduled play date with the neighbors black Labrador that he major has a crush on. I made a red fleece “slip-cover” for his collar in honor of the day and his every-day valentine nature! I would love to win the Dog and Parents basket for my 3 year old, Golden Retriever, Hudson. We were partnered six months ago as a Service Dog team and he has been a major miracle in my life! He loves LOTS of fresh water and the Drinkwell Fountain would be particularly wonderful. Hudson covets blankets of any kind and could happily snuggle into the quality of a Big Sky blanket. Anything Science Diet is great!

  • Michelle Spayde

    No special V-Day plans, but the whole world revolves around these guys daily, so it’s not like they’re missing out!

    I would love to win the kitty package! I have five FIV+ boys (rescues, of course), and one is having a terribly difficult time recovering from a major dental surgery a few weeks ago. He loves blankets, and I think that a fountain would help boost his water intake.

  • Susan Pike

    I would like to win the cat basket. This looks like the last Valentine day my cat Mattie will have. He’s got cancer in his lung. So I would like to win him something special. He’s such a good boy. Been with me for the last 12-13 years.

  • Fluffy will be cuddling with his loved ones by a cozy fire.

  • Jacie

    Every Valentine’s Day, I get valentine treats for my two shelties, and I try to get some for my neighbor’s dogs too. I would like to win the dog package.

  • I would love to win the dog basket .. for Valentine’s Day I will be joyously attending the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, cheering on my cocker spaniel Olivia. She is an ASCOB, a beautiful brown and tan girl. We’ll also be cheering on our dear friends who are entered too! We know it will be a wonderful, exciting, fun-filled day!

  • Lisa

    I don’t usually do anything special for Valentine’s Day for my dogs & cat. But, I do for their birthdays, Christmas, & Thanksgiving.
    I have both dogs and a cat, so either package works for me! :)

  • Kay B

    Quincy & Gansey, my two cocker spaniels would love the dog package. Gansey is on Hill’s prescription food and doing amazingly well.
    Both boys will be groomed for Valentine’s Day and receive a few goodies.

  • Lisa

    Our dog wants the dog gift basket. He lost his brother. He needs a comforting gift. On Valentine’s Day we plan to give him all the love he deserves.

  • Laura

    I will give my animals a little extra treats and more play time. Also I am a vet tech student, so I will give the animals here a little extra attention and toys. If possible I would like to be entered into both and dog and cat drawings.

  • AnnaZed

    Leonardo, my sweet cat who really is my true love, will be wearing his Valentine’s Day collar and having his twice a year treat of real human grade tuna. I know it’s bad, but he only gets it the once (ok twice) a year. The rest of the time he is Mr. Science Diet and boy is he healthy and does his coat ever shine.

  • I have 8 “official” cats (4 inside, 4 outside) and 2 that just show up once in a while. For V-Day, well, nothing special really. I’m hoping one of the two that just shows up will let me get a bit closer to her, that would be a great V-Day gift wouldn’t it? (Oh, and the kitty package for sure. Obviously, right?)

  • Hadn’t thought of making something for my dog, but maybe I will! I’d love to win the dog pkg.

  • NJJ
