Valentine’s Day is near. While it’s true the brimming presence of coupledom can feel a little oppressive, and one has to wonder if the holiday was conceived only for the benefit of card companies, it can also serve as a reminder that love is actually all around us all the time. There’s more love than just romantic love — there’s love between friends, between family, there’s love of yourself, and there’s the love of your devoted dog.
So, here are 10 dogs telling you much they love you. Whether it’s a heart-shaped spot or being curled up in a loving formation, dogs are not afraid to express their affection. We could definitely take a page from that book, and say, “I love you” to ourselves and each other more often.
And at the end of the page, you can upload photos of your own dogs’ heart-shaped spots or heart-shaped formations!
