I’m busy working on my Valentines preparations. There is so much for a girl to do to get ready. Last week I got my Raspberry Valentines Pupcakes recipe all set and tested it out, and now I have to work on my actual Valentines.
Being a scent hound I love scratch and sniff Valentines, but once again this year, I’m disappointed. They never have any good ones like wabbit, squirrel, mud, just stupid stuff like candy, chocolate, stuff no one would really want to sniff. I end up buying it anyway since it is my only option!
To spice things up this year, my love Bentley, who blogs at Barking from the Bayou and I are holding a #HoundHuggles Instagram photo contest! We figured it is the perfect time to share some love with our friends, and what better way than to have a fun Valentine’s contest.
One lucky winner will receive a Dr. Harvey’s Prize Package valued at around $45! I start to drool just looking at these healthy and tasty treats! A big GBGV thank you to Dr. Harvey’s for providing this pawsome prize package!
How can you enter? I bet many of you dogs are huggers! I know my sisters and I love to hug. All you have to do is upload a photo of you and your dog hugging to your Instagram account. Mom and I tried a hugging selfie. It didn’t come out all that great, but it is no easy feat to take the photo while hugging! No worries if yours is as bad as mine! It is all about the fun and showing some love. The winner will be randomly drawn. Hope to see a lot of hugging this week on Instagram!

looks like you have valentines all organised – you make a great couple
I’m pretty much a planner type of pup, so thing are in order.
wow that’s the way to celebrate the pawty of love :o) is that a weimaraner on that bag with the sweet paw-tatoes?
I think it might be a cartoon lab?

Treats and hugs, all a pup really needs in life!
You are so correct!
SlimDoggy (@MySlimDoggy) says
We’ll have to get the camera out and some fresh hugs!
Yay! We’re hoping to see lots of good hugging going on this week on Instagram.
Doggie hugs are the very best!
That is what my mom says too.
Sparkle the PBGV says
I just love to hug and kiss! XOXO Sparkle the PBGV
Bailie and I are such big huggers, Bailie even more with me. Hugs with a side of kisses are even better.
Brian Frum says
Sounds like some excellent plans in the making for the lovey day Emma!
I want to make it a real nice Valentines week and day!
Jan K says
What a fun idea for Valentine’s! Luke is a real hugger so we’ll have to give it a try!
We knew he was a good boy for some reason!
Looks like you’re ready for Valentine’s Day. What an awesome contest 🙂
Thanks. Yes, I do have a touch of Valentines fever I think!
The Daily Pip says
Sounds like a fun contest and we will definitely participate. I wonder if my feline sister wants to pose with me in a big hug …probably not.
I would love to see a dog hugging a cat selfie! Not sure if my cats would let me do it or not.
Groovy Goldendoodles says
Yummy for the tummy! I’ve got to get Harley and Jaxson to start practicing their hugs later this afternoon.
You can enter one photo of each of them. Great idea!
M. K. Clinton says
Oh my love, you did a beautiful job with the Valentines. I love that photo of us together. We are such a cute couple! ♥ ♥ #HoundHuggles are the best. ♥ ♥
Thank you Bentley. I sure hope we get lots of good hugs photos!
Emma, your look is absolute stunning!! I think everybody will want to hug you if you dress like that!
It must be my glasses.
You sure do rock the Valentine’s Day look, Emma!! We are going to have Mama busy taking some hug selfies or maybe some picture of us hugging Daddy!!
Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo
How about your dad taking some of you all hugging your mom? Hugs are so great!
Emma, I really like your Valentine’s Day sunglasses! How cute are you wearing those! 😀 I don’t have very many photos of me hugging my dogs, though. Since dogs don’t really like hugs, I try not to do it very often.
They say dogs don’t like hugs, but Bailie and I always initiate them. We love them and when Mom tries to get us down, we hug tighter. I think it is a breed thing.
Oh Emma!!! My Mommie made me pose for a huggie selfie and I just hated the whole thing, and now I have to post it and so I did do that, but I don’t know what it means to tag somefing, so will you tell me so my Mommie will stop nagging me about it?
Fanks. Will you also tell my Mommie that it’s not nice to make fun of a doggie’s new hairdo? She’s very annoying about that aday.
You have to post the photo and in your description you need to have the #houndhuggles and you need to add @MKClinton @MyGBGVLife @DoctorHarveys and follow our accounts as well.
Sand Spring Chesapeakes says
Cool contest, I have a hug already picked out. Good job on your VD preparations.
You certainly have enough dogs to find one to hug these days! LOL!
Tenacious Little Terrier says
Hmm.. could I post a picture of Mr. N hugging a toy?
I think that would be fine. We just want to see dogs hugging someone or something they love 🙂 It’s Valentines week.
Hugging is the best!!
We love it too!
Two French Bulldogs says
Bet there are going to be some yummy cookies
Lily & Edward
I’ve had some of these snacks and they were really yummy!
We think that is a great hug. I always hug my dogs and they love it but they don’t hug back. I hug around the neck from the back and usually Aspen will give me a kiss. Neither one will eat treat these days. Mica never wanted treats, Aspen loved them the 1st year, but I guess he thinks 21 months is too old for such things:)
I’ve never heard of dogs not wanting treats! We don’t play with toys, except Bailie who still likes to run around with them.
I’m always surprised! Every time I shop attached pet store I try to find a new treat to tempt them but they don’t eat it. There is a long piece (12 “) with peanut butter coating it, Mica does love that and both will eat a greeny. Aspen likes to chew on Hooves filled with cheese and pb. That’s all I have found they will eat right now!?
Emma, your pupcakes were so cute I sent the link to my friends. LeeAnna
Thank you. Sharing good things is a nice thing to do! They are super tasty.

Sounds like fun!
We hope to get lots of good hug photos this week!
