WARNING: DO NOT GIVE CHOCOLATE TO DOGS…it’s makes DOGS SICK! Thank you…Now continue….
Here’s a quick tidbit about St. Valentine’s Day…it’s not just a day to send chocolates and cards…it’s a celebration of a priest during the 3rd Century… named Valentine who stood up against a powerful Roman Emperor. When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men. Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine’s actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death.
So, as an imprisoned priest, Valentine sent the first “Valentine” from behind bars to a woman he loved..he wrote to her “From Your Valentine”….and so we continue.
Dogs can’t send cards but we sure will do our best to spread joy and happiness on this most red day. What a golden Saint and what a golden celebration! Happy St. Valentine’s Day! Paws up…and please don’t give dogs chocolate!
