January in Michigan…oh how we could live with you! We are having bone chilling temperatures here right now. Temperatures will be in the teens until Monday when we get anywhere from 5-8 inches of snow! Then a polar vortex of cold air hits us – daytime wind chills will be in the -20 range, while the night time wind chills could be as low as -40!
Meanwhile, ABC have decided it’s not too cold for them and they take their own sweet time outside, while this mommy freezes her buns offs! Next week it will be dangerously cold so I hope they do faster business! Maybe I should have been pad trained them for conditions like this. Oh well, too late for that!
Of the three dogs, Coby is definitely the snow lover! When we get a fresh coat, he will roll all over in it and rub his face. So cute to see, especially when his face is snow covered. Of course, as with most small dogs, they come in with snow caked to their bellies and legs, sometimes even their noses as pictured below. As a friend on Instagram said, “You catch a snowball there, Coby?”.
Besides the cold temperatures, things are good for ABC. Artie visited the doctor recently for an ear infection so he gets ear drops twice a day. He continues to take Apoquel for his allergies, but with those floppy ears, an infection still caught up to him. Ear infections are marked by scratching of the ear and head shaking. Artie was doing both, in fact, his ear was red, raw, and swollen before heading to the doctor. Usually things don’t get that bad before I step in to help, but hubby and I were on a cruise in the beautiful Caribbean when the infection showed its ugliness.
Hoping things are well with you! What’s the weather like where you live? Hopefully you are enjoying warmer temps than us!
