It's getting very cold outside, protect your pets!

     Today was extremely chilly in the Midwest! It reached -3 degrees Fahrenheit, and nearly -15 degrees with wind chill!. Did you know Siberian Huskies thrive on cold weather? Siberian Huskies have been known to work under conditions near -80 degrees! However, Senka's wooly hair could be dangerous in those conditions since his fur would take much longer to dry as opposed to the short-haired variety. But, if you have other breeds of dogs, particularly smaller breeds, make every effort you can to provide them with adequate shelter! If you can't bring them in your house, a garage should be good enough. Keep warm!


  1. IMHO Senka is a Finnish Lapphund not a woolly husky, and as such is the only dog allowed to stay out in minus 40 degrees in their native Finland - their double coat acts as a barrier against snow and they will happily dig a burrow to sleep in.


  2. Hi guys! Hope effuryone is well:)
