With this recent cold spell I feel the need to remind all my furry friends to stay inside and stay warm! Yes, our little paws were made for walking, but not for a long time when it gets this cold! Remember we can get frostbite too.
To my fellow dog friends: Please don't be embarrassed about wearing a coat. I have a sweater and a coat! And actually I find it usually results in more snuggles from our human friends because for some reason they think we look super cute in them. I don't think my human friends look more adorable in their coats, but oh well, for now I'll just enjoy the extra hugs. I don't know about you, but I also find all that salty stuff they sprinkle on the roads so annoying on my feet! I wish I could get used to my boots but it feels like I'm stuck in the mud! I saw a little dog prancing happily down the street the other day with his very stylish boots on and it made me a little envious. I should go home and practice, trouble is I can't get them on myself. For now I just put up with the salt and my mommy kindly wipes my feet when we get home. Sometimes I also just flat out refuse to walk. Fortunately I am small enough that I can do this, and my mommy carries me the rest of the way home. So keep your walks short in this cold weather!
To my cat friends: I know you are all too embarrassed to wear a coat and you consider it beneath your dignity so I won't even try. There is no need to be a hero and get out there to defend your territory in this weather. Step outside if you need a breath of fresh air and to make sure everything is in order, but that squirrel can be chased another day. Head back inside and find a cozy bed or blanket. Just because your crazy human goes outside doesn't mean you have to!
