|I have a few questions, so let's share!
Do your dogs like snow? If so, how well do they handle the cold?
Do you do anything for them due to the cold? IE - Booties, sweater, supplementing, etc.
Charlie LOVES LOVES LOVES snow, but he can't handle anything below -0C(bol), so he has booties(I've had too many issues with ice melt and his paws to risk it anyway), and a sweater so that he can stay warmer, AND enjoy the snow for longer.
This will be Ria's first snow fall and in fact, we took her outside into the sleet tonight for her bedtime pee, and she went CRAZY, so excited to be getting wet and playing on the wet grass, lol. I think I'll have another winter dog on my hands.
Maya, my old Rottweiler, unfortunately due to her extremely sensitive paws, also needed booties on her feet to keep her from getting overly cold during the cold weather.
It's a little unrelated, but I'm also trying to figure out a way to winterize my poor bunnies as my house FREEZES in Spring and Fall and is sure to do so in Winter, as well - meaning my bunnies in my spare bedroom will likely be cold too unless I can do something. So far, will be placing that plastic insulation on the windows under the blanket already on it, and be providing them with warmer blankets in their cages, and probably more hay to bed down on too.
