OK it's True Nuff:
I'm JACK OF HEARTS!
For this week anyway.....after all...it's ALMOST Valentine's Day!
and this dog does not miss a trick....as you know!
So, I dog-cided to take off my travelin' hat for the moment...and put the cards on the table...(well at least one anyway! That would be JACK OF HEARTS......admit it...ain't I just the cleverest dog you ever knew?)
So today I'm puttin' on the JACK TIPS hat instead! To make sure YOU don't miss giving your furry friend the best pet Valentine ever!
Here are a few of my pawsonal recommendations!
1. Doggy Date
HA! JOKE! I mean a REAL Doggy Date
Here I am with Miss Liberty the cutest little Boston Terrier I ever did meet! And speaking of meet......we met up at the Dog Bakery
Three Dog Bakery (my pawsonal favorite!)
For TWO very important reasons
a) Their goodies are just too doglicious for words!
b) they are healthy treats. (NO...and I mean NO chocolate for pups!)
So once we met up for our Doggy Date....I said to Liberty.....
"What special Valentine Treat would you like today Liberty?"
After we took a look at ALL the dog-licious selections.....
we settled on A Grass Sundae with a Valentine Cookie Topper...and two PupCakes on the Side!
DOUBLE DOG YUMM!
And after we finished our sweet Valentine Treat.....we decided we needed to work off those calories....so (second Valentine Idea)
2) PLAYTIME AT THE DOG PARK!
We headed right over to our favorite doggy park
(BTW did you know that Albuquerque has THIRTEEN.....yep 13 Dog Parks?)
No excuse to not take your pup to the park....there's one close by your house for sure....and it's fun for your pet too!
But it's time for a Station Break....and that would of course be a TV station......KASA Fox TV where I just LOVE to appear on set with Host Chad Brummett! Here's our latest TV segment..with of course more ideas about a good pet Valentine. Check it out!
which brings us BACK to our LIST!
3) YOUR PET CAN BE A BOOK STAR!
How about a very pawsonal valentine memento of getting YOUR pet in a book!
The 2nd edition (because the 1st was so doggone successful) of PET FRIENDS....called pupropriately
PET FRIENDS TWO
is looking for great pet photos! Now till July! So snap that special photo of your pet...and send it in to this link......www.TerrieQPets.com
and enter away.
In addition to very possibly memorializing YOUR pet in the book....guess what!?! You are helping shelter pets too! Because proceeds from the book support New Mexico Animal Welfare! Now isn't THAT just the best Valentine treat ever?
And you DON'T have to live in New Mexico....pets anywhere are welcome!
And you DON'T have to be a DOG....other pets are welcome (but no husbands please!)
And you DON'T have to be famous.....like Terrie Q and me....All pets are famous far's I'm concerned!
So there you go...another dog-fabulous Valentine Idea.
But now onto Idea number four......
4) TREAT A SHELTER PET TO A VALENTINE GIFT!
It's a PAWTEE! And You are invited! Here are the details:
WHAT: JACK OF HEARTS Open House

WHERE: LUCKY PAWS Coronado Mall, Albuquerque
I'll be there in all my Valentine finery.....and here's where YOU come in
A) Come on By! It's an Open House so any time is good from 12-4PM.
B) Make a $ donation--ANY AMOUNT for the shelter pets
C) With a donation you can pick out a Puppy or a Kitty Valentine Treat...and give it to them (so they have a good valentine day too!)

She's waiting there for her FURRever Family to come adopt her.....She (and all the other Pets there)
will be sporting a brand new Valentine Bandanna....donated by Groomingdales Pet Salon.
THANK YOU Groomingdales for Always helping the shelter pets out! BTW...they are wonderful partners to the shelter pets...they groom LOTS of them so they look their very best....so they can get adopted! And it works too! Now that is what I call Doggone Dandy Community Give Back!
So that's the plan. The dogficial

5) A PLUSH NEW VALENTINE FURRY
