Yay! The day is here to decide who’s gonna take me to the Valentine’s Dance and I’m SO super excited!
There are 17 super wonderful and handsome candidates to choose from (which means 17 green papers for Dog Fostermom’s fence!) and I would be just tickled pink to go with any one of them!
Now, it’s awfully impawtant to me that this doesn’t turn into a pawpularity contest. So pretty please take a few minutes to read all their entries and be sure to vote on the one that you think would really and truly be My Most Pawfect Valentine’s Date. Okay? Voting will be open until 5:00 p.m. my time tomorrow.
The poll is at the bottom of this postie.
So are you ready? Set? VOTE!
Roses are pink (well, this one is, at least)
My heart is blue (okay, I think it’s actually red, but metaphorically speaking)
I would sure like to go
To a Valentine’s party with you!
Like you, I’m dateless on Valentine’s Day, and I would be truly honored to go with a brindle beauty like you. I’m a really good date because I’m a snazzy dresser, a good dancer, and a really good listener. Will you please be my Valentine?
Your friend (and hopefully, escort), Casper
I think I am the most qualified to be your date for the Valentine’s Day Pawty. I haven’t asked any one else on the chance I’ll get to go with you. Just think how beautiful your sweet brindle furs would look next to my dark and handsome chocolatey furs. As you know, I’m a Canine Good Citizen, so you know you’ll be treated like a lady and your drink will never (ever) be empty. I’ve also dabbled in agility training, so I’m quick on my feet and would love to parade you gracefully around the dance floor.
I could go on and on, but you said 3-5 sentences, so I will obey your rules. I have my paws crossed that I’m the one picked to be your date!
4. Dillon (Little Miss Jackie’s brudder)
Hello, luvly Miss Mayzie! I want to tell you that I would sure enjoy being your date for the Valentine’s Pawty. While I am a senior, I am a gentledog and feel that it is impawtant that a lady should be treated like the very beautiful princess that she is. You are such a wonderful, pretty, and fun lady and it would be a great honor to escort you to the Pawty!
Luvs and high hopes, Dillon
5. Garth Riley
I’m often described as a perfect gentleman, and I would make an excellent date. Not only am I extremely handsome, I’m also talented, intelligent, sensitive, very sweet, and LOTS of fun. (Plus I have a girlfriend so Booker doesn’t have to be worried that I will steal you away from him!)
It’s me, Jimmy! I was wondering if I could ask for your paw on Feb 14th to accompany me to the Valentines Day Dance?? I am sorry it took me so long to as, I had to work up the courage to ask such a pretty brindle girlie. Being such a young pup, I didn’t think I had a shot at impressing you, but Kylie says I am a good catch and you won’t be disappointed and Kylie would never lie… Right???
Looking forward to hearing your response!
Puppy kisses, Jimmy
8. Joe (nominated by Marg’s Pets)
We would like to enter our donkey Joe in the contest. We know Mayzie, you probably would rather go with a handsome dog but we just thought it would be fun to give Joe a chance. He certainly will take very good care of you and he is some kind of a dancer. He knows all the new dances and would even let you ride around on top of him. He also thinks that your Brindle furs are so very pretty. We think you would have a great time with him. The two of you could dance the night away.Even if we don’t get picked, we sure hope you have a good time at the dance.
Marg and all the critters here. We all voted on this assignment.
9. Kuster (as dictated to Bunny)
My mom, Gail, told me about your pawty and I would love to be your date! I have been told that I am a very handsome fellow with a (Ta Dahhhhh!) brindle coat! Mine is called a black brindle, because it’s so dark. I am mostly black with lighter stripes down my sides and legs and a broad, black very shiny stripe down the middle of my back with no light color at all. I pawsonally think we would make a striking couple since we would both be brindle! I am a very growlly guy and would pawtect you from all dangers while we were on our date. I am enclosing a couple of pictures (and Mom put a couple more!) of myself, but my real strength is in my pawsinality. Hoping to hear from you soon!
Lewis (my furrends call my Lewi)
11. Monty (nominated by his brudder Sam)
Mayzie! You’re one of the prettiest girl around Blogville, and I figured that given your status (popularity), it’d be good for you to go on a date with one of the biggest rockstars in Blogville! How’s that? As you know, I can play the guitar, I can be a deejay, I’m the lead guitarist of the GREAT PawsBang!! You can choose ride in our PawsBang tour bus to the pawty, and make the other girls jealous, HEHEHE.
I would like to take to the party because I am always happy to find new girlfriends. Once I had lots of girlfriends (20 or 30 I think) so you can see I am an open-minded sort of dog and don’t mind at all that you have another boyfriend. Important to respect a girl’s opionions and freedom.
What else? Well, I don’t really do much except I promise to gaze at you soulfully and you will be free to dance with whoever you want while I snooze away in the corner (unless there are CATS to chase of course).
And – here – is my original Pippa Valentino post where I aspired to be a star of the silent screen. Please let me be your Valentino this year.
14. Sam (nominated by Tank)
15. Tank (nominated by Sam and Pippen)
We thought of entering ourselves to win a date with you but then thought, “Mayzie wouldn’t be able to handle TWO studs of our calibre!”
So we would like to nominate TANK!
We think the two of you would look HAWT! but more importantly we think you would be a positive influence on Tank and maybe be able to teach him some manners and etiquette… not to mention his cranky moodiness, with your sunny disposition, we think you could make Tank less of a curmudgeon!
I would love so very much to be your “Val-un-times” date this year. Some people call me a dreamer, but it’s only because I like to nap a lot and dream of you! I am also very adventurous and go exploring with my Ruffwear Backpack, and I always help my mama with cleaning the dishes. Oh, and that’s another thing, I still live with my mama, but only because she needs to be cared for – who else is going to protect her from squirrels or alert her when the mailman comes?! See? I’m sensitive, protective, and a manly man…won’t you be by Valuntime?
My name is Winston and, iffin I get da date or NOT, just wanted you to nose how BeaYouTeaFul you are, ‘speshullally ju Bwindle Furrrrrrrs!
Di ya hear how brave I am? I am a warrior, a mighty hunter..’speshually of squirrels! I nailed one dis wintew..Mommy wasn’t happy butt Daddy was so pwoud, he eben got out da flashy box to have a wecowd of da ebent! I lub to dance, my Daddy teached me how to do da Cha Cha Cha!!
