I am really hoping Kirby is enjoying his days of green grass and sunshine while they last. As a dog,it’s funny to think he really has no inclination that for the first time in his little life everything is about to change drastically- well weather wise. I have never owned this small of a dog before and the thought of him jumping into the snow and ultimately disappearing, makes me want to laugh, but it also makes wonder more about this winter situation. As he is a Yorkie/Maltese mix he has “hair” as opposed to “fur” or so I am told. Unlike my other dog Poe, who takes after the Pomeranian in the fact he was two coats of fur himself, I haven ever run into this problem. By comparison Kirbys “hair” does seem very different than fur, as it is fine, and limp,and is very easy to see his skin through it, all in all it looks a lot more like the hair on top of my head. I have never been one to dress up my dogs, but it would seem this time there is actually a necessity and a legitimate need for my Canadian-born Kirby. And although we might both look a little ridiculous walking around with him in a little sweater or woolly jumper type of thing, I really do not care if I get looks or asked why in the world have I become one of those people who dress up their dogs. . I have learned there are two types of dressing up, the type where you you put a little frilly dress on them because it “looks soooo cute”, and the type where the dog actually does appreciate the extra warmth it provides. Well that’s all my thinking on this topic, everyone have a nice Sunday!!!
