Weekly Pet Challenge – A Chilly Syd

Monday Morning

January 6, 2014


chilly after a quick outside potty break

Monday Afternoon

sleeping pee

stayed on the couch all day

Monday Night

outside temperature:  – 19°, felt like -37°

inside temperature:  toasty warm on Mommy’s bed

mommy's bed

Mommy caved in…..

A certain young lady is not liking the weather.  Who could blame her?  I have noticed, though, that my little girl is beginning to show her ‘maturity’.  The arthritis in her back legs and inability to process ‘regular cold temperatures’ has become a new adventure for us.  We shall prevail…..

Come join us!

      It is – I hope you are staying warm. I was home yesterday, but today i had to come into work. Pee would not get off my bed this morning. I did manage to get her off and outside for her business – I anchored a heavy bath towel around her. I must say, she was a brave little lady at 5:15am.

      Stay warm and safe:)

        We are still digging out. I couldn’t leave if I had to. The joys of living in the country.

      do i sense a teensy hint of jealously????

    If I didn’t know that was a dog, I would think it wasn’t a dog.

    Curled up on the sofa with a blanket. I just add a heating pad too.

      In our house the 3 lettered word dog is looked upon as a 4 lettered word;)

      Actually, I have used a heating pad for her. Her arthritis in her hind legs is acting up quite a bit. I feel terrible for her.

    You know I love this, they think they are people…hey wait! They are. 🙂

    • 11. words4jp  |  January 7, 2014 at 6:23 pm

      yes, they are people. without a doubt:)

    Syd looks so warm and snug on mommy’s bed. Thanks again for the lovely entry.

    My dog has an injury from puppyhood that makes her front paw weak. She has done a lot more hobbling outdoors during this storm. We’ve had her on the sofas for a lot more snuggles, too. I hope it balances out.

    • 14. words4jp  |  January 8, 2014 at 11:23 am

      I am so sorry to hear that. Syd is a tripod – no right front leg. We knew arthritis was inevitable and it is here. Began last year. But I have never seen her this weak before. I feel helpless.

    Wow, that really is a great dog that you have in your possession; you can just tell.

    • 21. words4jp  |  January 15, 2014 at 2:34 pm

      yep, that she is. i was just telling Dom that she is like a 55lb hairy chihuahua – not liking the weather much. 🙂
