One night last week, I let the boys out right before bed and thought… “Well, it was bound to turn into this.” See, the whole of December was pleasantly mild for Indiana: temps in the 40s and even 50s! That night felt frigid, and when I checked my phone, it was confirmed. It was 0. There were no degrees. Then, the next morning, I awoke to -4.
That is more like it for this time of year. Not that I like it, of course, but it is what it is!
So, I put a coat on Coop, and he’s had a coat or sweatshirt on for about the last week. It’s easier than taking it on and off every time he has to go out. Plus he’s chilly in the house – I’m chilly in the house – so it helps keep him warm and cozy.
Then, he re-discovered the joy of napping on top of the heating grate!
Emmett is slightly less cold than Cooper, though I still put a coat on him for walks.
Anyway, while Coop and I bundle up and shiver in these low temps, Lucas is having the time of his life! He loves cold weather. Pile snow on top of frigid temps, and the boy is in heaven! I actually tried to get video of him running his laps in the yard – he jumps and twists and spins and leaps, picking up a mouthful of ice at each turn – but I didn’t realize that I couldn’t unlock my phone with gloves on. And I’m not taking my gloves off in -4!
How does your dog do in these frigid temps?
