Be Still My Beating Heart

Confessional time.. and long overdue too I must add.

Whilst I am more than happy to escort any of the beautiful ladies who I am lucky enough to have as friends on a *date* yes even you Laciegirl ;) I have to say that it must be a purely platonic buddy date... you see...

I have given my heart away, a little while ago I sewed it into a a very cute stuffy toy (who is called Dave UK) and sent it across the ocean to my true love.. the one who makes my pulse race a little faster, my day a LOT brighter and my dreams a lot sweeter.

I'm sure there are very few of you who will have to read any further to know exactly who I am talking about but for the benefit of those of you that do... I will continue to gush

My girl is beautiful, smart, funny and kind hearted and its about time I publicly declared how much I love her..

I present to you...

The Very Gorgeous Miss Fluffy Tail herself.... Khyra

and here is my girl meeting Dave UK (and my heart) for the very first time..

so there you have it folks... it's official.. My heart is taken!

and I better go hide now because when Khyra spots this post I may be in trouble!! Sorry BeaWOOtiful.. just couldn't resist!

Oh and while we are on the subject of love.. It's Mum & Dads Wedding Anniversary today!! Happy Anniversary Oldies

Ben xxxx

PeeeS.. kinda got a busy week coming up getting ready for .. umm.. something.. well maybe something.. well who knows.. but anyway... if we are a bit quiet don't worry normal service will resume shortly. We will get around everyone as best as possible this week.


Khyra The Siberian Husky said...

Oh Ben!

Why would woo feel the need to hide?

(other than from Laciegirl and her shrieks)

I always knew that Dave UK was furry special - I smell the love sent along with it!

I shall left soundly tonight (just as I did under the tree) dreaming of WOO!

I hope my love will kharry woo through this busy week! It shall all be worth it!


Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oh, a romance in bloom. Khyra would catch any guy's attention.

Hi Ben
We are so pleased that you have been able to let Khyra know how you feel.
She is such a beautiful dog and those eyes...........
It is easy to see why you have sent your heart all the way over to her safely tucked inside Dave.
We always knew you were just a big softie!
Happy Anniversary to you Mum & Dad - hope they have a good time celebrating.
Your basset buddies

LuLu and LoLLy! said...

Hi Ben. We are 2 Maltese dogs, let us say HI! Also, congratulashons on your true love bizness and such, we are new to this blogging thing but detect that this has been going on for some time, and it does seem truly outstanding and eg-siting. LoLLy is a rescue and we do stuff to raise money and awareness for rescues, and we wanted to post a link to the shelter you came from on our website. BUT we could not figure out what state it is located in, and that is how we organize all our rescue links! A lot of humans use them it turns out so we are always growing the list. Can you help us? You can post back at under Dog Blog! or email us at luluandlolly at luluandlolly dot com. Thanks Ben! Love, your PaLs, LuLu and LoLLy!

Moco said...

You certainly aim high going after Miss Khyra herself. Good luck with that, pal. I think you might do well to send her some snow.

I don't know what Khyra's other boyfriends will have to say about this, Ben. Maybe it's okay because you're in another country.
