My new favorite TV Show:

Shark Tank, for those who are not familiar with the show, is reality TV - about inventors and entrepreneurs who come to the Sharks asking  for an investment in their company.

You tend to learn a lot on this show and then you end up trying a lot of the stuff.  

Like...  Ice cream...  
Ordered online and delivered to your door on dry ice.  

 This ice cream is Oh-so-Good...

And one of the most unusual and perfect 
Valentine's gifts I've ever received!

Don't try to calculate calories though...  

Apparently there are no calories.
I couldn't find anything on the box that said there were.

 So I first enjoyed the Tub o' Hugs 
which is Chocolate Chocolate Chunk.

100% Calorie free and H-e-a-v-e-n-l-y!

Gracie, who now has over 4,000 Facebook friends was invited to a Valentine's Day party this evening online... 

 This is what she commented to her friends earlier....

She is faithful and true to her boyfriend Samson!

To My Valentine
by: Gracie Icantbelieveyoudidthat Phillip

Samson, oh Samson,
You are the only one.
I think of you when the sun comes up,
Until the setting of the sun.

Samson, oh Samson, 
I love your fur of white.
You're big and strong and handsome,
In my world you are my light.

Samson, oh Samson,
I will always be so true.
Cause Samson I could love no other,
Because I so love you.

Your Gracie



  1. Gracie is such a celebrity! That ice cream looks so good!

  2. The ice cream is also alot of $$$$$$$

  3. where have you been hidin' Samson???


  4. What's going on here with all the 'puppy love'!!?? lol So cute!

    We have the original version here in Canada called 'Dragons Den' with Kevin O'Leary and other Canadians. I see that Kevin is also in 'Shark Tank'. I got to enjoy the show after a while and actually learned a thing or two. Very entertaining too!

  5. Hi my friends! Happy Valentines Day!

  6. I love the concept of no calories on a treat like that! Enjoy!


  7. We love Shark Tank at our house too! Your ice cream looks so creamy and delicious.

    We've been waiting all day for our special package to arrive and its still not here. Bad UPS! Our dry ice contains hot dogs from NY. Unless the UPS man ate them all.

    Your poem is beautiful! You're one lucky little girl Gracie.

  8. (I think they are too old for 'puppy love' it's probably serious)

    Yah, sure, no calories, you bettcha! I wouldn't mind some about now.

  9. Oh Gracie, you are so romantic!!! Many human partners don't write poems to each other this good. Shark Tank...I didn't think any of those things were available yet!!! I thought they had to be in development for a long time!! This is awesome, a perfect gift!!! Did you order it, or was it from Gary?

  10. Happy Valentines Day for yesterday.
    We hope it was a great one.
    Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  11. WOW... Who knew you could get ice cream delivered to your door? Hmmm! I just might have to try that:) Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

  12. Samson Says: Gracie, Gracie, I can't believe you wrote me a poem too! You are not only the cutest, smartest, and best girlfriend a dog could meet on a blog, but then you are a poet too. Thank you for this poem and your Valentine's greeting. Mommy was under the weather yesterday, so we didn't see it until now. XOXOXO, your Samson.

    Me: Bobbi, you may remember that Gracie asked Samson for a
    Valentine's poem way back last fall. He didn't forget, but was sooo worried she wouldn't like it. Phew, these dogs, they are so smitten with each other.

    I also loved that Gracie mentioned
    Samson on Facebook and that she has so many friends there. She deserves all the best because she's the best. I never use my Facebook. I think I'm too old. And I will not let Samson know such a thing exists.

    Samson says to let you know that he found his Gracie Two. She had a bath and was drying in a secret place. So he is sorry for what he said when he saw that other dog on your placard.

  13. Just popped by to say Hi!!!!!!
    I am not seeing good but I think of you often!!!
