On account of it being so cold, I put the dog's new coat on. It's a little blue wool one I bought for her last year, but it was far too big to use then. It still is a little on the large side, but I didn't know exactly how big she was going to grow when she was a tiny puppy. She does look cute in it.
OH wasn't very happy. He doesn't think that dogs need a coat and refused to use it on his walks with the dog. To be honest I can see his point, but I do like to molly coddle her sometimes and she's just so darn cute in it, I just couldn't resist. My argument is that she loses so much heat through her little pads when the ground is so cold, that any heat that you can keep in her is a good thing. I'm only going to use it on really cold days because to be honest she wasn't that struck with it herself. She soon forgot that she had it on though and it didn't hinder her walk any.
I didn't manage to take any pictures this morning, so I got her to model it again (reluctantly) for me tonight when I took her around the block. Aaahhh! (Please excuse the cobweb behind the front door!)
I hope your Christmas preparations are coming along nicely.
