Yup, the news just said that is how many people are being affected by winter storms already. (Mom just realized I had left off THREE zeros of the hundred million people so we corrected it, I hope) More than HALF the nation is covered with snow. We are supposed to get between 11 and 14 inches on Saturday night so we are certainly in those numbers, too.
And, cold...yup, it is certainly cold. Today at daycare I was the only boy dog so I had to go out with ALL the girls. Since some of those girls don't like each other and can't go out together, that meant I was outside almost all day. The HIGH today was 21 degrees. Brrrrrrr.
Anyway, tonight I am in the warm house with Momsie and the others. And, tomorrow we are gonna rest up and get ready for all that snow. I am the one elected to break the paths... that is a serious job that only a BIG dog can do. Those little toys sure would get lost in 14 inches of snow since they aren't even 10 inches tall.
The good news is that I heard Mom tell someone today that dogs who spend time outdoors in this cold weather and snow need to eat more calories to keep warm. EAT MORE, Yup, I can sure do that, BOL!!!
Brrr, stay warm!
The other night it got down to -7 degrees and momma opened the door and asked me if I needed to go piddle. I did, but just right outside the door and on the door mat - BOL
We were -5 this morning. Quincy didn't mind, brown noser that he is, but I didn't even get out the door, BOL!!!!
WOW!! Extwa fudz cuz it r snowin'??? OMD!! It r snowin' here, tu!! "Hey, Momma!! Gess whut I heered!"
Hope yu habbed fun bweakin' dose twails, Quincy!
You are a big strong brave Boy Quincy !!
All things considered, and extra food notwithstanding, I'm just as glad we don't get that snow stuff here. I'm not a fan of cold!
Yeah, I am BRAVE! And, I won't be askerdid if I see that BLACK PANTHER!!!!
Yup, it IS true...dogs that spend lots of time outside in the cold DO need to eat MORE to provide energy to keep themselves warm!!! Isn't that the best news you ever read???? Mmmmmm, I am drooling just thinking about it!
