Puppy Love: Free Valentine’s Day Portraits

Walk My Dog Toronto is hosting a truly adorable event for Valentine’s Day: a #starbucksdate with the cutest dogs in the city! Come get your picture taken for FREE outside of the Starbucks at Bathurst and Fleet. Hot drinks, puppies, and charming conversation: what more could you ask for on Valentine’s Day?

Walk My Dog has partnered with Off Leash Studio to create the perfect photobooth, including props and two dogs (Pencil, a 6-month-old dachshund puppy; and Dr. Jay, an old three-legged golden retriever). So come by yourself, or bring a date (canine or human) and hang out with some sweet pups!

    Here is a copy of my letter to the Toronto Star in regards to today’s article written by you. I am a bereaved mother and over the years have learned to deal with people who consider their dogs “children”. Today’s vapid story entitled Puppy Love needs some enlightenment.
    Unless you have had a child, you cannot say that you love your pet like a child, they are not the same. I am sympathetic to pet owners when their pets pass as I know they can become very attached to them. I get it, I truly do.
    Stephens ends her “article” with saying that she gives her dog all the love that she has. She then insults parents by stating that if they don’t love their children the way she does her dog, the parents aren’t doing it right. Given that she has never had a child, who is she to lecture anyone on their parenting skills?
    Bottom line and this is the most important issue for me. Pets can be replaced, children can’t. Nothing will ever get around that truth.
