The weather outside is frightful, but the fire….you can sing the rest, I’m sure. Can we remember our furry friends before we get cozy in front of the fireplace?
Some people think animals can handle below zero temperatures. Maybe those people should try sitting in an outside dog house for an hour before they decide. Animals should be family members, right? Mine sure are! They snuggle in the house with us all the time. We take them out to potty, but they certainly don’t live outside.
One of our little dogs is very “thin-skinned.” She has short fur and gets cold easily. Yes, my friends, she does have a sweater! Is that a reason to put her out in the kennel for en extended period of time in extremely cold weather? NO!
If you happen to see an animal out in the cold, please take action! Talk to the owner and offer support and/or advice as needed. If no action is taken and the animal is still suffering in the cold, call your local police. Family members deserve better.
