    Default Moving!!

    So, we are moving in a couple of months, from Florida to Maine!! Wow, what a difference! I'm excited, though! I think Gus will be happier, though, and get more time outside, since I believe the heat is more of a lethal threat than the cold.

    Do anyone here live in a cold climate? Do I need to get him sweaters or a coat? What temperatures would you consider worthy of some kind of outerwear? Can his paws go out on the snow/ice or does he need something like boots?? I'm happy that I won't have to stress the ht temps so much.. He hasn't spent more than a few minutes outside at a time for weeks since it almost never drops below 80 degrees even at night until late September!!

    Oh I love living up here where we only have 2 or 3 scorching hot weather months. It's starting to cool now, and Stig loves it because it means he can attend daycare regularly again.

    They don't necessarily need a jacket. But when it's snowing or freezing cold out we tend to have them put one on. Normally the temp would be minus 10 degrees celcius or lower, when they get to wear their adorable fleece lined gear. But that's when we're walking though. If they're only going to the backyard, they run around naked, lol.

    Punkin loves cold weather and thrives in it. It's funny because in the summer he only goes outside when he needs to and would run back in ASAP. When there's snow outside, he pretends that he can't hear us calling him in! He's content looking around and eating the fresh snow.

    Your pockets will be fuller too. Paying the gas man is so much cheaper than the hydro thiefs. Lol.

    -image-jpg-image-jpg-image-jpg-image-jpg-image-jpg-image-jpgHi, I also live in Canada, and my two guys definetley prefer the snow to the heat. We use a sweater in the fall, and they have winter parkas for the winter, but we only use these for longer walks. If they are just going out for a potty break they go out with no coat on.

    Gracie hates snow... she pee's and poo's on the sidewalk so she doesnt have to go in the snow. I have to make sure the sidewalk is shoveled clean for my baby or she will just hold it til I do.. LOL
    She wears a fleece as soon as it gets cold enough to wear one.

    Here in New Jersey, we sometimes get it all, heat, humidity, cold, snow...Dudley loves the cooler weather...he begs to go out and he'll wander the yard, sit on his chair on the patio in the sun. He has a little "coat" that I got at Target. It's waterproof on the outside and has a warmer lining on the inside. When it gets down into the 30s and we are going for a walk, I'll put it on him. He also wears it when it rains...keeps him mostly dry! He doesn't mind it at all -- he'll just stand there and let me put it on! He loves the snow -- he plays in it and of course, eats it! I just don't let him out in it for too long and I watch his feet. I honestly don't think he would wear boots...and his paws are so HUGE, I don't think I could find ones to fit him.

    Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them...

    Thank you for asking! This is something I've been wondering (we live in nj).

    Good luck with the move. Very exciting!

    Wow. Your going from no snow to mo snow!
    Maine is beautiful. That's where I wanna retire if I live to see a pension.
    Here in New York we get both extremes in the hot and cold side. Luca Loves the snow and will play in it for hours if I let him. Last winter when he was still a small pup I would put his hoody on him only when it was below freezing temp 32 degrees F

    oh, if you have to deal with the sidewalks, be sure to get pet friendly salt! the other stuff can hurt paws!! Chunk has a coat for really cold days, and a couple sweaters/ hoodies for moderatly cold days, but omg he loves to play in the snow, bouncing and rolling around in it!! AND cold weather ins cuddle weather, enjoy!!!
