For me and others, it's not " just a dog " it's an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment. " just a dog " brings out what's good in me and moves my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day.........

Valentine's Day survey results: more "quality time" is the greatest gift we can give our pets

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, we’d like to share the results of our survey in which we asked participants to give us their nominations for the “top-10” Valentine’s Day pet gifts. The results surprised and delighted us and we want to share them with you.

As you would expect, the list - see below - includes gift items that you can buy in a store and carry in your pocket (or car trunk). But as much as people want to express their love by giving their pets tangible gifts, the gift they most favor is the one that has no price tag on it. The simple truth is that when all is said and done, it is the only gift whose price cannot be measured in dollars: ‘quality time.’

Here are the results, in order:

#10 A new sweater or coat

#9 Enrollment in doggy daycare

#8 A Valentine’s card

#7 A sibling (dog/cat/other)

#6 A new dog bed

#5 Prepare their favorite meal

#4 More trips to the park

#3 A stuffed animal

#2 Special dog treats

#1 More quality time together
