Connor smiles for Valentine’s Day

Mom's Valentines day/ birthday loot from dad

Having a birthday today is not that unusual. I have three friends who were also born on Valentine’s Day. My family in Malaysia were first to wish me a happy birthday, followed by my handsome husband, and then the dogs – but they only figured it was a special day because THEY got presents today too.

Connor is a special dog. He was abused as a puppy, and now is very wary of people. However, Connor loves girls, squirrels and food of any sort, and he will occasionally reward you with a Connor smile. This involves raising his left lip, which looks like a goofy half-snarl. Today his smile was his birthday present to me.

Connor’s dad bought him and Chloe new toys for Valentine’s Day, and Connor rewarded me with his famous smile (which doesn’t quite come through in my pictures, hence the highlight with the arrow). If you are feeling less than loved this Valentine’s Day, and have room in your heart for unconditional affection, then I highly recommend adopting a dog. If nothing else, he’ll make you laugh out loud at least once each day and remind you not to sweat the small stuff.
