Braving The COLD


With a windchill of -20C today, we were a little hesitant to venture down to the beach.

But once we got 'the signal' from Princess Sophie that it was time to go outside,
we applied our multi-layed winter garb and headed for the boardwalk.

Parked the car, stepped outside.....bearable.

We went down to the beach to escape the north winds
and lasted for about 20 minutes.

Besides, Sophie started to raise her front right paw,
it was collecting snow and starting to freeze.

Back to the car.

    1. And I don't blame him, Joyce. Sophie usually takes her time getting back to car but lately she is ahead of us and waiting!

  6. This pictures give me the shivers, Jim! Looks like time for booties for the girl. Maybe trim the fur between those doggy toes?
    We got a light dusting of our own in the night, it just shows on the cars though.

  9. I know that signal all too well. For me it comes after returning home from working out there in those temps for hours on end. I'm the guy walking with his dog wearing a suit and tie every day (with multiple layers thrown in for fun to the point that I can't move) because I'm not taking everything off, just to go back out there.
    When Sir Pugsley gets snow in his paws, he just sits down and won't move.
