|Cooper, Fynny and pupper Hoyt are all wussy about the snow and cold. They pee, poo, and immediately turn around to head back in. ZERO horseplay happenin outside lately (today I believe we hit a high of 4, windchill was so bad you could hardly breathe, got about 9 inches of snow this weekend on top of the 6 or so we got last week - parts of MN saw an additional ***20***. For anyone aware of what the Metrodome is (was) that "broke" it lol, not pleasant here at all as of late).
Trigger on the other hand will run until his nose falls off. Literally. I have a picture on his profile of him while we were throwing dummy one winter day two years ago. It had been frigid for several days, but he was going stir crazy in the house so I finally indulged him in a solid fetch session. We were out maybe a half an hour, if that. He actually ended up with frostbite on his face. Lost fur, bits of skin, was all red and puffy for weeks, and wowza was he in some pain. For awhile there vet absolutely thought he was going to lose a chunk of his nose
He didn't bat an eye while we were out. I now won't let the dogs be outside longer than I can stand without a coat. Especially Trig, tough ol coot, what he won't do to retrieve anything, anywhere, under any conditions....
