Just to prove that our pets shouldn’t be missing out on Valentines Day, NECCO (New England Confectionary Company) have decided to mark 2007 with a tribute to pets. The company dates back to 1847 and began making Conversation Hearts in 1866 – originally known as Motto Hearts. Every year they bring out ten new sayings and this year they have produced sayings that pay tribute to pet-loving ways. They include sweet sentiments such as ‘Cool Cat,’ ‘Top Dog,’ ‘Take a Walk,’ ‘My Pet’ and ‘Purr fect.’ Eight billion Conversation Hearts are produced every year during the six-week period leading up to Valentines Day.
Sweets are obviously not the best thing to be offering your pet, but while you and your partner indulge in a little ‘sweet talk’ your pampered pet can enjoy a few of their own tasty treats!
