Winter is Coming. Brace Yourself.

I wish I knew who composed this meme as it’s spot on.  Share this with your friends and family and help them to understand that dogs with proper coats and access to shelter are not suffering in the winter.  In fact, most LGDs LOVE snow and the cold weather.  They’re built for it.

Plus, what’s more cozy that curling up with a bunch of small ruminants?  Not much.



***A little tip: If the falling snow is sitting on the dog and not melting, that dog is properly insulated.  Plunging your hand into their fur will find a nice, warm perfectly happy dog.  I don’t recommend doing that with any that aren’t your own, though.
