To MY “Queen of Hearts” Happy Valentine’s Day!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY ALL!

There were a number of us in the U.S. who didn’t realize until the last moment that Mollie and Ranger’s Valentine’s Ball was going on all week and many of us had other blogging obligations that we had to fulfill and were unable to adjust our schedules.

I still was lucky enough to attend the ball with MY “Queen”….EVA……..

We had a wonderful time and appreciate all the work that was involved in putting on such a spectacular event!

Neither Eva nor I  had any aspirations of winning   the title of “King and Queen” of the Valentine’s Ball, and of course we didn’t, but  in OUR hearts we will always be “KING” and “QUEEN” to each other!

Happy Valentine’s Day my precious and stunningly beautiful Sheltie girlfriend Eva! 

Dakota and Eva Valentine's Day

 

Be sure to stop over to Mollie’s and see who the REAL King and Queen of the Valentine’s Ball was.

Be Still My Heart!!

To those of you who regularly read my blog, you know that I have been quite vocal in barking broadcasting my love for a gorgeous Sheltie princess who lives in Malaysia, Eva. She also has her own blog, which you may visit here

In case you missed my Wordless Wednesday post about Eva, you may click here

Yesterday morning I had the surprise of my life when my Mom told me that the beautiful Eva had responded!!! Not only had she responded, but she responded via video so that I might revel in her amazing beauty!!!

Here is the video  Eva made, just for ME!!  Not only is she beautiful, but she performs her tricks so delightfully! She is brilliant! Brains AND beauty! The total package!

Eva is so stunningly beautiful that seeing this video made me long to be with her that much more.  She needs me to help her carry her toys  (even if they ARE pink! I am manly enough to handle that!)  Does anyone know how a Sheltie would go about getting a passport?

Long-distance love is such a trial!

Barks and licks and aching love, Dakota

Semi-Wordless Wednesday-My Heart Belongs To Another

and when you do,

please send my love,

Barks and licks,

and all of my love my princess, Dakota

Barks and licks and love, Dakota

Happy Holidays From Us, To YOU!!!

Mom, my brother Cody and I would like  to take a moment to wish ALL OF YOU the HAPPIEST OF HOLIDAYS!  We hope that whatever you celebrate, you have your loved ones around you,  lots of toys to play with, good food to eat and good health to last you a lifetime!!

We are grateful for each and every one of you and we look forward to more fun times with you in 2012!!!

Barks, licks, love and HOLIDAY CHEER!!!!

Dakota, my brother Cody  and “Mom”

We are particularly grateful to Rosie, the beautiful, brilliant, talented and loving daughter of Priscilla from one of our favorite blogs:

EVA THE SHELTIE

(please click on the above link to check out their blog)

for creating our GORGEOUS

holiday card!!!

If you would like to enlist the graphic design services

of Rosie, you may find her HERE


FROM ROSIE: My name is Rosie and I am a freelance designer and a learning photographer. I started creating photo montages of my sheltie, Eva, during my free time as a hobby. I then went on to creating more banners for my good friends, and now it has turned into a small business.

I am self-taught and still learning, but I hope you enjoy my designs and please contact me if you are interested in having one.

Photo Montages are for everybody! Although most of my clients are breeders to advertise their kennels and successful dogs, I also create montages for pet owners and dogs that have gone to the rainbow bridge. Photo montages are very useful when advertising a litter, a stud dog, or a great win!

I have created many banners and website headers with all happy clients. I hope you will be one of them!

Thank you Rosie!!! We love YOU!!!!!!!

Caren, Dakota and Cody
