Character Bio for Valentino
(Valentino is a fictional character who stars in a novella by Tina D.C. Hayes, Valentino, Be Mine, which is included in the Valentine Pets and Kisses Box Set.)
Full Name: Kingsley’s Prince Valentino the Mighty
Nicknames: Goes by Valentino, also answers to Val and Love Bug
Breed and Description: Male teacup Yorkshire terrier who weighs under 3-1/2 lbs soaking wet. Cute, smart, affectionate and loving, and he enjoys getting his way.
Age: Three years old
Occupation: Starred in commercials for Yummly dog food until he retired a year ago due to the brand changing spokesdog breeds from Yorkies to French bulldogs.
Education and Skills: Along with basic obedience and agility, Hollywood trainers taught him plenty of tricks he performed on command in front of the camera. He can sit and stay (though he prefers not to), shake hands, walk on his hind legs, jump through hoops, and look adorable even when in a bad mood.
AKC Titles: Valentino has earned his CGC (Canine Good Citizenship), RN (Rally Novice), and NA (Novice Agility).
Goals and Problems: Valentino needs a new home, but isn’t sure who his new person is going to be. Kaylee has dog-sat for him plenty of times and he already loves her bunches, but he likes Carter too, and has spent a lot of time with him at the bar when his former owner was busy with clients. Valentino doesn’t understand why those two can’t get along and play nice, but he’s happy to be the center of attention.

Sparks fly when two people wind up looking after a rambunctious Yorkie who needs a new home.
Kaylee Rose is thrilled when a neighbor asks if she’ll consider taking in her teacup Yorkie, Valentino. But there are strings attached. The dog’s other caretaker turns out to be Carter Hartley, an arrogant jerk she’ll have to deal with until they decide who keeps the pampered pooch permanently. Kaylee and Carter can’t stand each other even though they both love the dog, but they’re forced to either get along or risk losing Valentino to a heartbreaking fate.
