Random Valentine facts...

While waiting for board meeting to start I found these 'facts' from a Google search. Surely they're true...

-More than nine million pet owners are expected to buy gifts for their pets this Valentine's Day.

-Around 3% of pet owners PREFER to give Valentine gifts to their pets, as they are more grateful than humans.

-15 percent of U.S. women send themselves flowers on Valentine's Day.

-Hallmark produced its first valentine in 1913.

-BBC reports that Shiv Sena, a nationalist political party in India, has spoken out against Valentine's day, calling it "nothing but a Western onslaught on India's culture to attract youth for commercial purposes."

-This pink background is a little icky . . . but most of the valentine blog backgrounds cut into the content of my posts and this one doesn't. (I want you to read every word.)

This is a great background! I can't believe so many people spend so much money on their pets! Its crazy, but I think those little doggy outfits are SO cute and sometimes... sometimes.... I think about having a wee little chow to dress up.
