Valentines Day: Pink Ears & Poochy Love February 10, 2011



More Ways to Spread that Poochy Love for Valentines Day!

So, the holidays are long over and our hearts are filled with new Spring energy. Isn’t it true? Or is it just me? Aren’t you just jonesing to explore the unknown? Perhaps try something new?  Here are some suggestions to spend a perfect Poochy Love Day.

How about treating your Best Friend to an awesome spa treatment at Canine Concepts in Morgan Hill, followed with a treatment of slightly pink, tinted ears!



Way Cool, and the color choices are numerous for any occasion.

Afterward, hit the Morgan Hill Community Park on Edmundson Avenue and strut your stuff, then run free at our favorite Morgan Hill Dog Park.

Another Romantic spot is walking around the Santa Cruz Harbor, situated in the middle of Twin Lakes State Beach and Seabright Beach.

There are several doggy water fountains



located throughout the harbor if you start to pant, and the scenery is just enjoyable.




If you want to get wet, keep walking towards Light House Point and take a dive. Stomach Growling after a long walk? Grab a bite at the ‘Poochy Friendly’ Aldo’s Harbor Restaurant. Our favorite orders consist of a side of bacon, or a small patty…. yum yum. Another eatery option is the Seabright Brewery. Nothing’s better then an ice cold Blur, and water for your Poochy love.


If venturing out is not your cup of tea, how about a little donation to a local charity in honor of someone special? You can always donate leashes, food and blankets instead of cash. Click on the link Volunteer-Donate Locally for some local suggestions.

Perhaps you’d like to purchase a  Gift Certificate from The Central Coast Pet Sitter for that special someone? A walk a day has as many benefits of exercise and Play! Or maybe you need someone to watch your pet, while you spend a romantic getaway with your other loved one? Whatever you choose to do…Enjoy your Day!
