Take a moment and think about how it would feel going outside and standing in the snow with nothing on your feet… Add to that temperature that are breaking cold records.
Before you do what you do every day, opening the door to let your pet outside while you maybe get your coffee – instead, watch them closely and make sure that after they do their um business, they head right back in. Keep an eye on them when they come back inside.
If your pet(s) are anything like ours, we would do anything for them and wish only the safest, happiest time for them. Pets have no idea when it gets too cold to play outside and when those temperatures can result in frostbite or even worse.
While some pets may have that big fur coat, some breeds, such as our dash hound
Chloe has a very thing shedding coat that provides her virtually no protection from the elements, and you as the pet parent need to make sure that all your pets are kept safe as outside temperatures this cold is time to keep your pet inside and close to you.
Just like Rosie, who has the right idea! Our pups are not the greatest fan of cats (mind you, we think it is a game between the cat next door who plays a “you can't catch me” with our pups in chase!. Those pet parents with cat's – even if your cat is an outside cat, having your feline inside and maybe sitting on the window sill so they can still enjoy the outdoors while keeping warm – and lol on the sidelines for this inning of “Slow Choquette dogs, you can't catch me”!
Thank you for being that caring pet parent – your four-legged family member's tail will be wagging or um purring.
And yes, four pups were severely spoiled in the writing of this post!
Be safe and keep warm,
and lol the neighbour's cat 😸
