I have a darling Mini Schnauzer-Shih Tzu mix puppy...Missy. She's 3 months old now and only weights about 4 pounds....a little bundle of fur. My problem? We've been going for walks at least 2 times a day, but it's turned very cold outside now for the last several days and tomorrow is supposed to be even colder.....we have a frost warning coming. I'm concerned about it being too cold for her tiny self and she could get sick. I crocheted her a sweater, but she won't walk in it. She just sits there as if to say "please take this thing OFF of me!!" She'll go by the door and sit. OH....yes, she's pee-pee pad trained and is VERY good at not making mistakes...she learned very quickly. So going potty is not the problem. I've tried taking her out when it's cold, but she's shivering the whole time so I bring her back in. I have sliding patio doors and I will put her on her leash and let her go out as far as the leash will go, but that's not a walk. She loves to do that, but she's still shivering. I don't think she knows it may not be good for her to be out in the cold air. I'm thinking of buying her a doggie fleece hoodie, but she may do the same with that and not want to wear it. What do you all do with your tiny dogs when it's too cold outside? Do you take them anyway? Any ideas on how to get her to wear the sweater? Also, is she much tougher than I think and I'm just being a paranoid mommie???
