I was reading this article:
And I have to say, finding it a little bit hysterical about dogs and cold weather.
"Never let your dog run in snow, he may lose his scent."
I have a medium haired dog (she has some shepherd in her), who would die if we put any sort of clothing on her. I mean, she gets paralyzed and can't move. We live in NYC, where it's unlikely to dip any lower than the teens, worst case scenario.
Apart from very small dogs, who I imagine might have trouble with the cold, I wonder about most other dogs sporting clothing for short walks. It seems like a very anthropomorphizing thing to do -- imagining that because we wear coats, our dogs might also need them.
I mean, I remember reading White Fang and Call of the Wild. Dogs have instinctual ways of dealing with the cold without having to stop in doggy J Crew, right?
Am I crazy? Dog sweaters -- yay or nay?
