Heart-spotting Contest Entry

Yet another heart-shaped gem from Sylvia W.

Two, actually:

While photographing Holstein dairy cows recently in Delta, BC, I was captivated by two young cows who shared both an enclosure and a heart-shaped mark on the forehead. Who could resist such sweet, innocent faces…especially when they had love written all over them (literally)?

That’s a heart alright.

There’s nothing like being able to recall the lyrics from a 1972 hit single to make a guy feel old. The saving grace, I suppose, is that I’m remembering Donny Osmond’s cover of “Puppy Love” and not the original (1960) version by Paul Anka and Annette Funicello, which was waaaay before my time.

Whenever I think of puppy love (or “kitten love,” as it’s also called), I think of Miss Clark – my Grade 1 teacher. She was adorable; and even though the infatuation was entirely one-sided, I always recall her with fondness. (I can’t help but wonder if things would have turned out differently had it not been for the pants-wetting episode. Sigh.)

Here’s a little heart-shaped puppy love and kitten love to make your Thursday afternoon warm and fuzzy…
