Winter arrived earlier than usual and temperatures dropped fairly quickly in a short span of time. Gabe n Arch did not have a chance to acclimatize to the new weather, so for the past week or so, they've had to bundle up when going outdoors. Archie just freezes up when he's cold ... he sort of winds down like a mechanical toy and eventually becomes completely immobile. Gabe is a little tougher, but I've had to swoop in and hoist both boys up a few times, to get them back into the house.
Today was about -20C/-4F. We were able to play outside for about 5 minutes at a time, twice. Finally! Cabin fever is reigning. Fights are breaking out. Mittens are getting eaten. I think we're all looking forward to the predicted milder temps this weekend.

I've been a fan and subscriber of Modern Dog magazine for a few years. I also "like" them on facebook. On facebook, they recently asked fans to submit photos of their dogs in Hallowe'en costumes. I submitted the one of Gabe as Michael Phelps and Archie as the hot dog. They selected our picture and it was featured on the Modern Dog website.
