Heart shaped balloons. Stories of love. They’re everywhere at the moment because Tuesday is Valentine’s Day! This time of year is predominantly about humans, but surely our pooches should feel the love too?!! Ted and Millie certainly seem to think so! Like me, Ted & Millie are looking for love (despite Ted’s best efforts, Millie’s not interested) so for our next two blog posts, we’ve teamed up with two companies who can either help your pooch look their finest (so they find love!) or provide the pawfect gift for your dog to send to their crush (or at the very least, be a treat for themselves so they get through Valentine’s Day!) Plus we’re launching a little Valentine’s competition below across social media and we’d love YOU to get involved.

First up, we’ve teamed up with The Distinguished Dog Company, so Ted & Millie are able to look Valentine ready and maybe find love! Find out who Ted & Millie’s ideal dates would be, what they’d wear and how your dog could win a prize…

Ted & Millie are looking for LOVE!! Could your dog help?!!


So who would be Millie’s ideal date?! Millie is a very active girl, so she’d like her ‘pooch-friend’ to be sporty and playful. Is your dog good with a tennis ball or football?! This could be a love match! She’s on the go all the time, so they’d need to be able to keep up! Do you have a pup who fits the bill?? Scroll down for our fun competition and your dog could be Millie’s Valentine!

Should Millie be lucky enough to find a date, the ‘Love Is In The Air’ Bow Tie from The Distinguished Dog Company is just sooooo pretty, so obviously Millie would just have to wear it! Who said bow ties are just for boys?!! This bow tie is so delicate as it’s made from a special cotton fabric and I just adore the little hearts (particularly the pink ones!) Would your dog want to impress a date with their own? Click HERE to see their fab collection so your pooch can be the prettiest in all the land!

So who would Ted’s ideal date be? Well Ted is a very laid-back type of dude but he also loves the finer things in life and adores his food. He’s looking for someone who’d be happy to be wined and dined but who would enjoy a good old snuggle (on only the finest blanket) too! Could your dog be Ted’s perfect match? See below to enter our fun competition and your dog could be Ted’s Valentine!

Ted is more than happy to embrace the look of love and likes to look distinguished, so he’d opt for ‘The Colour Of Love’ Bow Tie, should he be lucky to find love! It’s so retro and I just love it! Made from a fine needle cord, I personally haven’t seen a bow tie like it, so your dog would definitely stand out from the crowd (perfect for catching the eye of potential suitors!) The quality is amazing and I think he just looks sooooo adorable in it! Who could say no to this face? Would your dog like their own retro bow tie or another style? Click HERE so they can be the talk of the town!

So you know what Ted & Millie would wear on Valentine’s Day, now they just need to find love (and they need YOUR help – plus you could win a prize!) Could your dog be the pawfect love match for Ted or Millie? Simply:

  1. Upload a photo of your dog on either of our Facebook or Twitter pages (or just upload a photo to Instagram)
  2. Tell us why your dog could be a great love match for either Ted or Millie!
  3. Use either the hashtag #ValentineTed or #ValentineMillie on any of the posts so we know who your dog would like to ‘date.’

We will then select two UK winners at 8pm on Valentine’s Day (competition closes at 6pm) who will receive a gorgeous bow tie prize from The Distinguished Dog Company OR a yummy treat or two from our next Valentine blog collaborators, The Barking Bakery Company! Exciting! Who would your dog choose? We’d love to know in our comments below!

Valentine GIF (Blog)So come on, let’s all feel the love…(although I think it’s fair to say I’ve now reached new levels of ‘crazy dog lady’ so do join in, so I don’t feel quite so crazy – I really should focus on finding a Valentine for myself too!)

Sarah, Ted & Millie xx
