why women like flowers?

With the passing of Valentine’s Day, many men may have been left wondering why women like flowers so much, a question which is warranted. I mean, they don’t really do anything other than sit in the house and look pretty for a few days, and then they die. They don’t really provide any service or value right? Well, here are a few reasons why women love flowers so much:

First, flowers represent thoughts. Women understand that in order for men to get out and purchase flowers, they have to have taken the time to think about them. This is very important because women are very emotional beings. The fact that you took the time to think of her and then doing something that is completely out of your daily routine and outside of your comfort zone for them goes a long way. It is a beautiful thing because you put them first rather than the other things you have going on in your life.

Flowers show that you pay attention. Just bringing the flowers home isn’t enough, men need to get the type of flower and the color of the flower right. If you can succeed in both of these areas, you will have hit the ball out of the park with her. She loves the fact that you pay attention to the little things and have paid attention to what she has told you. She may not have openly said that she loves red roses, but may have mentioned it through simpler less obvious ways, but in her mind, she told you, so pay attention!

Flowers say I love you. It is as simple as that. Women love to be told how you feel about them. Remember that they are emotional beings and even though you may not need the same type of reassurance, she definitely does. There are many ways you can tell her you love her, but this one will do it with an asterisk.

Even if you do not feel comfortable purchasing flowers for your girl, get rid of your pride and get out there and do it. She will appreciate it more than you expect. It is a simple and thoughtful, and though you may not fully understand it, she will love you for it.

The Dalmatian (Croatian: Dalmatinac, Dalmatiner) is a breed of dog whose roots are often said to trace back to Dalmatia, a region of Croatia where the first illustrations of the dog have been found. The Dalmatian is noted for its unique black- or brown-spotted coat and was mainly used as a carriage dog in its early days. Today, this dog remains a well loved family pet and many dog enthusiasts enter their pets into the competitions of many kennel clubs.

Body

Dalmatians are a mid-sized, well defined, muscular dog with excellent endurance and stamina. When full grown, these dogs’ weight normally ranges between 35 to 70 pounds (16 to 32 kg) and they stand anywhere from 19 to 24 inches (48 to 61 cm), with males usually slightly larger than females.The body is as long from forechest to buttocks as it is tall at the withers, and shoulders are laid back. The Dalmatians’ feet are round with well arched toes and nails are usually white or the same color as the dog’s spots. Their thin ears taper towards the tip and set fairly high and close to the head. Eye color varies between brown, amber, or blue with some dogs having one blue eye and one brown eye, or other combinations.

Coat

Dalmatian puppies are born with a plain white coat, and their first spots usually appear within a week after birth. After about a month the Dalmatian has most of its spots although they continue to develop throughout life at a much slower rate. Spots usually range in size of a quarter to a half-dollar and are most commonly black or brown (called liver-spots) on a white background. Other more rare colors include blue (a blue-grayish color), brindle, mosaic, tri-colored (with tan spotting on the eyebrows, cheeks, legs, and chest), and orange or lemon (dark to pale yellow). Patches of color appear anywhere on the body, mostly on the head or ears, and are usually consist of a solid color.

The Dalmatian coat is usually short, fine, and dense although smooth-coated Dalmatians occasionally produce long-coated offspring which shed less often. They shed considerably as well as year-round. The short, stiff hairs often weave into clothing, upholstery and nearly any other kind of fabric and can be difficult to remove. Weekly grooming with a hound mitt or curry can lessen the amount of hair that Dalmatians shed although nothing can completely prevent shedding. Due to the minimal amount of oil in their coat, Dalmatians lack a “dog” smell and stay fairly clean.

Temperament

Dalmatians are intelligent, playful, loyal and active dogs. They usually get along well with other animals, notably horses, and are great companions. Dalmatians are high energy dogs and love to play and romp outdoors, although they also enjoy lounging with their owners. Some dogs, if cooped up, can become aggressive and some have been known to attack smaller breeds of dog when attempting to ‘play’ with them. In most cases this only shows up in a tendency to bark, often just for play. If shown love and companionship from a young age Dalmatians will be loyal and affectionate.

Uses

The Dalmatian is often used a rescue dog, guardian, athletic partner, and most often an active family member.Dalmatians are a very active, high maintenance breed. Pet owners should be willing to put extra time and effort into the care of this dog versus others. Dalmatians normally have a big appetite and will eat whatever is put in front of them so pet owners should carefully control food intake.This fun loving breed is very easily trained and rarely aggressive, and owners should find it relatively simple to train their dogs to participate in activities such as jogging, horse back riding, agility, flyball, and common dog tricks. Dalmatians need plenty of exercise otherwise they may develop anxieties, but if given ample room to run and romp 30 to 40 minutes daily this should be sufficient.
