Valentine's Day is upon us which means a lot of different things for different people.
For some, it's a day consisting of hanging out with friends, basking in being single and free; for others, it's an excuse to get all dressed up with your S.O. and gett a fancy dinner.
Here's all the different types of Valentine's Days you can have as told by our furry friends.
1. A Passionate Love Triangle Conundrum
Maybe this Valentine's Day is going to be a little uncomfortable for you because you don't know your relationship status. These sloths get it. A sloths life may seem simple on the outside--slowly moving from branch to branch... eating one... leaf... at... a... time. But when it's mating season and girlfriend Samantha catches the eye of an eligible slothalor (sloth-bachelor), it turns into a stressful situation for Mr. Sunshine, her "long term companion" (aka, friend with benefits). Who do you side with: Mr. Sunshine or Romeo?
2. A Honey-Moon Stage Love
...with someone you weren't expecting to be attracted to! Is there something more there? Will this Valentine's Day date lead to forever? Let Charles the Kudu and Camilla the Giraffe show you that you can fall in deep love with whoever, no matter their species.
3. A Fun Night Doing What You Love with Friends
Maybe you're not in a relationship, but that's not an excuse to not celebrate love! You'll be spending the evening eating the foods you love with the friends you love. However, hopefully your friends won't surprise you with the secret that Maria surprised Dominic with...
4. Self-Pamper Time
You're smart and taking advantage of all the Valentine's Day spa and massage deals! There's nothing wrong with spending some "me time" this Valentines Day. Hopefully you can get as relaxed as this golden retriever!
Or maybe you can fancy yourself an all natural tea-bath like these baby sloths are getting:
5. Spend the Day With Your Long-Term Love
Whether you've been dating for 10 years or married for 50, Valentine's Day is a great excuse to remind your soulmate how much you appreciate them. Meet Judith and Tariq, two geese that have been together for 8 years and are still going strong.
6. Going and Seeking Out Next Year's Valentine
Maybe you're single this year, but you want to take advantage of the day to find someone to spend next year with! Since it may be awkward to go on a first date on V-Day, you head to the bars or club. Now is the time to bust out your best lines and dance moves. These flamingos have "nine signature moves" - what do you have?
7. A Long-Distance Valentine's Day
Valentine's Day can be tough when your person is away. Whether they're in school across the country, serving in the military or can't make it home for some reason, Valentine's Day is a tough one when you're apart. But don't worry, one day hopefully you will be reunited like this pitbull, Roxy, and her owner. (Warning: tears may occur).
8. A Special Day with the Kids
Valentine's Day doesn't always have to be romantic. If you have kids you might just want to settle down and spend some quality time reminding them how much you love them. Watch this single mom, a Portuguese water dog named Boston, try to wrangle her newborn babies for dinner. She is working so hard, but it's all for love!
There are all kinds of Valentine's Days to have. Whether you're single or in a relationship or something in between, you can still make it great!
But in the end, I think all any of us want is someone to be as excited about us coming home as this boxer is:
