ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-- Emily Daigh decided to cheer up her coworkers on a cold dreary Valentine's Day.

"I am so excited," says Emily Daigh the puppy gram recipient.  "Come here, puppy."

Daigh was one of three St. Louisans who got flowers, balloons and a visit from the Humane Society of Missouri's puppy gram.

"Everybody is so down on Valentine's Day and we just want to give an opportunity to give some puppy love to people while raising money for our Cinderella fund," says Angela Smith of the Humane Society of Missouri.

The Cinderella fund pays for emergency surgeries when strays or rescues are brought into the humane society.

Friday Daigh was the belle of the ball with her Scottrade co-workers who were ready and waiting for some puppy love.

"Oh it's great, it's off the charts cute," says Lindsay Morrison.

And how does a 30 minute puppy visit rate on what can be a ruff day for some?

"Oh an 11, totally," says Emily Stoltz.

"Bob is a lab puppy," says Smith.  "He's about two months old and he's available for adoption at our St. Louis city location and we also brought his brother Jed and Jed is adorable."

These barking brothers were a sure fire way to bring some smiles on this Friday.

"Oh this is absolutely the best Valentine's Day I've ever had," says Daigh.  "I apologized to my husband but puppies in the office, come on."

After all, it is hard to compete with a canine with puppy breath.
