I know I know, but I just couldn't help myself! I saw the costume in Petsmart and I HAD to put it on him. If you didn't know, Holli and I heart firefighters and Rescue Me. Mmm. The only thing I love more than a fireman is a ball player, but I've dated them, and well clearly that didn't work. Actually I've dated a fireman too, that didn't work either. Whatever. I just need a man. But back to my current favorite boy, Tonka. I just love him lately, he's turned into such a good little dog. He's finally gotten into a routine of going on walks. I take him everyday at lunch and then once in the evening. He's so content when he gets to run around outside for a little while each day. Isn't he adorable in this costume? I would have bought it, but I need to get him a coat for winter, and the ones I looked at in Petsmart today were $30! Expensive! Can you believe that? Oh, also I need some advice or suggestions. Tonka (like his mother, he he) loathes the cold. He's small and when the temperatures drop he doesn't want to go out. So how do all of you dog owners deal with this? He becomes very needy if he isn't walked, so I don't want to go back to that. I plan on getting him a coat, but I'm not sure that will help him get over the cold, and he hates wearing clothes too. I may get him a pair of the little paw booties too, but those were $25, and I would be shocked if I could even get them on Tonk's paws. Any suggestions on ways or places to take the dog so he can walk, but not in the snow/cold?
