Cold Weather Hits! Look Out For Your Kids And Animals!

Deep freeze time. Make sure you look out for your kids and your animals. Those nice little knit coats are great and so are booties. It's funny how dogs will react to the booties, but if they are going to be out walking for any length of time, in minus 27 weather, they will appreciate you putting those booties on.

Your dog is going to react to the booties the same as every dog reacts...they are going to walk funny for a few minutes, it is not torture, but it is really funny.

The dogs are fine, and most importantly so are their paws. You stand out barefoot in minus 30 weather and see how long you can stand it!

The worse is that all the people commenting negatively about a dog in booties, seem to have nothing to say about this.

Barefoot toddler saved from brutal cold

 EDMONTON - The quick actions of a Good Samaritan likely saved a child's life after he was found outside in -34 C weather wearing shorts and an upside down parka, police say.

The barefoot three-year-old boy was plucked to safety after a neighbour in his west-end apartment building heard him crying about 10:45 p.m. Sunday.
"If it hadn't been for this citizen stepping forward, I don't even want to think of what the outcome might have been," said Sgt. Gary Willits, with the Child At Risk Response Team.
"The outcome could have been tragic."
Now, that is important. Complaining about people filming their dogs wearing booties, is very unimportant in the grand scheme of things, it shouldn't even rate our concern.

Keep your kids bundled up and your pets warm in this cold weather. It's only common sense.
