Ooooooh, that's potentially very scary. LOL! Speaking entirely personally, I think on the whole our Goldens are much better looking!

Awww that's a great picture! Did he actually keep the scarf on?

I have to say I feel like such a wuss when I posted about my heater dying on NYE. It got down to the 40s here overnight but I know that is no big deal to so many people. I think the problem was I just wasn't prepared--mentally or supply-wise--for it. I kind of like going out and tramping around in the cold--as long there's a warm house waiting for me at the end of the trip! . And although e dogs didn't seem too bothered, I think they feel that way too.

I guess what I'm trying to say Susan Marie is you & Jordan can pull it off but it's just not a guy thing...a ball cap is okay and maybe a beer can but if I dressed my dog up like that we'd have to find a new place to live.

Sonny, the black lab, ran ahead to make sure there were no gophers or jackrabbits in the way. If you don't give a dog a specific job, he'll improvise one for himself and it will invariably be fun. There's a lesson there.

He didn't actually get out the door with it...god knows he didn't need it and I did.

I don't think you're a wuss...cold is cold. Unless I'm winter camping in the snow I want to be nice and warm and even then I want to be nice and warm. A house temp in the 40's isn't much fun, I don't care how many dogs you have. Hopefully you've got that furnace fixed and the house heated.
