Canine Campers Express Puppy Love for Bo with Paw-Print Valentine
The doggy day campers at Best Friends Pet Care in Chicago were paw deep in paint this week, creating a special Valentine card for First Dog Bo Obama.
The dogs paw-signed a heart-shaped card as a mark of their deep puppy love for the First Pup. The six panel fold-out card reads “Happy Valentine’s Day from the Doggy Day Campers at Best Friends in Chicago” and was paw-printed by 24 camp dogs including Sasha, Mavis, Indigo, Asa, and Rosie, as well as Max, Spike and Huckleberry.
“Bo is the ultimate furry Valentine and is our hometown doggy hero,” explained Bruce Blaine, manager of the Best Friends Pet Care center in Chicago. “So it’s not surprising that his name came up when we were making valentine cards.” Paw painting is a frequent activity at Best Friends, he said. With the help of their camp counselors, the campers paw-print cards for their pet parents for special occasions. “It’s their way of saying ‘I Woof You’.”
The Valentine card for Bo has already been mailed to the White House, but Valentines to campers and counselors in Chicago and at other Best Friends Pet Care centers will be distributed during the doggy Valentine’s Day parties this week.
Best Friends Pet Care, which offers boarding, grooming and training as well as doggy day camp, has 41 locations across the U.S. The local pet care centers regularly hold parties to celebrate special occasions like Valentine’s Day. Earlier this month, many celebrated the Super Bowl with Doggy Bowl events.

As much as we love the holiday season, it’s also kind of nice when it’s over and the hustle and bustle settles down. Of course, we loved our little break from normal life:
Sometimes the wrapping is more fun than the actual gift! Or at least, Baby the Maltese thinks so.
It’s been very cold (in the negatives), so Baby often wonders why she has to go outside for her business.
New Years Eve celebrations included fireworks, floats, and fun homemade cookies. And of course, staying up late to ring in the new year. We all slept late the next morning.
How was your holiday season?
