Just to prove that our pets shouldnâ€™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 â€“ 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 â€˜Cool Cat,â€™ â€˜Top Dog,â€™ â€˜Take a Walk,â€™ â€˜My Petâ€™ and â€˜Purr fect.â€™ 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 â€˜sweet talkâ€™ your pampered pet can enjoy a few of their own tasty treats!
