We've been hit with bitter Arctic air and frigid temperatures and snow for three days and nights. While I don't mind the snow and cold, this is pushing it for our little dog family. While I can bundle up for protection the dog's paws have been freezing up being out only a few minutes. Chance seems to be the most sensitive of the bunch, he wants to go out but ends up on three paws to come in. I've been keeping a close watch and don't let both sides out at the same time, that way I can keep an eye when they start to get cold. We've been hovering around 0 (-17.7C) degrees or so with about a foot (30.48cm) of snow. Which may not seem cold to some, but it is considered quite frigid for us.
So we'll play some indoor games and snuggle tight until we get through to the next season of our lives.
