A Portrait of Love: Happy Valentine’s Day from Fur and Feather Works

The amazing thing about love is that it transcends species.  When I requested pictures of animal “valentines” for our newsletter, I didn’t expect the overwhelming response I received!  So, this is my valentine to you, featuring … you!  Forget the chocolates, flowers and jewelery; this is what love really looks like.

You can also find all these pictures on our Facebook album here.  Feel free tag yourself, comment, add captions, and share!
