Sure, it might not be the most significant of unofficial holidays, but any excuse to share some cute animal photos is fine by me!

Here's my Beastie Bestie Loki outside enjoying today's snowfall. She's been by near-constant companion for over 8 years now. She's just as versatile as me in that she can be a couch potato as well as full of limitless energy. She's the best. pic.twitter.com/tJLreeEd4n

 Happy snow pup. She was practically swimming through the sidewalks on the walk we just took. #mprphotos #minnesotaexposure #snowdays #happycollie

This is Sir Pickles, who we got at the age of 3 for my teen daughter who's always wanted a dachshund. Why do I love him? Because he loves her more than anything. He'd choose her over bacon. 

Yeah, it's great how this worked out. pic.twitter.com/dxLZr2Vi0J
