If it’s too cold outside for you – then it’s too cold for them.

Hank and Gracie are lucky – they spent the last few days bundled up inside watching Lifetime movies and only going outside when it was  most inconvenient for me (that means I was asleep) and then only for seconds at a time.

But we hear the barking.  We hear the dogs in our neighborhood begging to come in as the sun sets and they wait for their owners to (hopefully) come home from work and let them in to warm up.  If you have to leave your pets outside make sure they have a warm place to sleep (covered and out of the wind) and lots of water and food.

It’s illegal in a lot of places to chain a dog up outside – and if you have to chain up a pet ……. then you don’t need to own a pet.
