Peggy Sue, Standard Poodle Born May 2019
Brrrrrr Annie! Humans are nuts.
Haha! So cute. Gracie used to burrow into the foot of my sleeping bag on especially cold nights—like having a fuzzy little hot water bottle. A little different with a spoo.Annie survived the night. I think it only went to -14C.
Between the sweater, sleeping bag, and a duvet I tossed over top of us both I couldn't see her head all night and she was warm to the touch any time I checked. Her human was relatively warm, but Annie was a bit cold, so after a 5 am potty break (really Annie?! That's the coldest time of the night! And you want me to get out of bed and walk?!) she was shivering so got tucked in with me curled around her. By 7 am, I was stiff from being curled around a dog trying not to be pushed off my mat and she gave me those 'really? You wanna get up? I am pretty comfy here" eyes with a big stretch and flop over when I tried to get up. Dogs!
Only supposed to be -5C to -7 C tonight, I am happy.
We have a 15 year old border collie/whippet who comes into the den at 10 pm sharp if we are watching TV and makes it very, very clear that 10 pm is bed time. At the very least I have to go turn down our bed, fluff up his bed, and get the chihuahua's bed out of the closet and place it at the foot of our bed. The Lab will already be in her crate - she usually tanks at 8 pm. The mini poo has no interest in bed time unless there is jerky. Amazing how dog's have very firm ideas about how things should be done!The purchase price and ongoing monthly fees can be high, but definitely the most effective fitness solution I have ever tried. And cuddle mode is helpful too. My version has bedtime alarms enabled too. No more staying up late allowed!
Happy Dogs (well dog & cat)!View attachment 475711
Two happy dogs after the first walk of the season at the beach.
Dog on right is happy because she has a terrific roll in goose poop.
Dog on left is happy because she had a good game of ball. Also happy because she gets her bath delayed -again- while dog on right gets her third bath this week.
