"Get a Dog!" by Ben Stein

Screen shot 2013-08-27 at 3.18.59 PMWe humans must be trained to develop relationship mastery. While we are the masters of our dogs, they are the masters of actually practicing the highest virtues we only say we hold dear. Ben Stein, in his classic deadpan humor, nails it:

Whew! You got here before Valentine's Day... OR... Oops! You're getting this too late after Valentine's Day? Either way, great!

For example, for our tenth anniversary, I collected and printed or wrote out 365 love quotes and poems and put them in the jars pictured above. This way she could read have random love note/Valentine every day that year. Further, they are a constant reminder year after year of the time and care I took that Valentine's Day to let her know for many days and many years how much she matters to me.
