Dog reenacts what single people do on Valentine's Day

While television commercials and store displays encourage the best gifts to be purchased for a special someone, many people who don't intend to celebrate the holiday wait impatiently for it to pass.

If that's you, you're not alone. Loki the Corgi, a dog with more than 500,000 followers on Instagram, knows what it feels like.

A video on the pup's social media account shows the difficulty of living the single life when flowers and candlit dinners just aren't in the day's plans.

The truth is, a night in with a classic movie and some ice cream doesn't sound like a bad idea. Maybe Valentine's Day doesn't have to be so bad after all. Plus, a carton of ice cream costs way less than a fancy dinner anyway.
