Well, turns out I’m not the only one who is going to have to get used to deep freeze here in Toronto.
Due to her hip dysplasia, arthritic shoulders, and advanced age (almost 16!), Jelly gets a free ride. Literally. She gets shuttled from the hotel to the park and back in a special dog stroller. Pro: The comfy trip. Con: She pays the price by having to wear the Santa Pug outfit. Akemi insists: “The dogs LOVE to dress up!”. I remain unconvinced.
In emergencies, the patio offers a great back-up to the long and involved trek to the park. Snow can complicate matters though!
For the rest of the gang, who don’t have the luxury of stroller rides, it’s socks and boots (and jackets and Christmas bells)! Getting them dressed is a two-person job.
But once we’re done, it’s a stylin’ all systems go!
Although, in retrospect, the addition of hats might be advisable.
Alternately, dialing down the fun ensures a mercifully quick and much less snowy stroll.
Lulu, however, always makes the best of even the worst situations. If life gives you snow, make snowmanades. Or just chase down a ball.
