If it were in the 40s here, many people would be walking around in shorts, a few in t-shirts.

lol kwhit - I thought that too!

At night I let DH take Rose out. He handles the cold better than I do and I simply enjoy his report on the #2 every time he comes back in; which he knows I will ask if he does not volunteer the info. And here it goes:

"On a scale of 1 to 10 - 1 soft, 10 firm I would say it was about an 8 in firmness. The odor is about the same. Coloring between dark and light brown more towards dark brown this time. ANYTHING ELSE!"

Sometimes Ky looks at me like, "You can't be serious mom, all the other dogs are going to see you and make fun of me"

Lol, my bf and I do this too! We score the poop from 0-100 based on the Purina poop chart (google at your own risk!). This was especially important when I was switching Molly's food.

One time, both my BF and I were walking Molly but he picked up the poop. I asked him for the score and he said, "I'm not sure.. it's 70 to 80" and I said, "well, is it on the softer or the firmer side?" Then he handed me the bag and said, "here, you feel it" and that was when I noticed a neighbor was approaching and could hear our entire conversation.. I was pretty embarrassed.

Even when it's 0F here I will go outside with just PJ pants on, shoes and a heavy hoodie.

But I'm Canadian so the cold doesn't bother me much.

There's been times when it's been below 0 and I've gone outside to clean my car off in just a t-shirt

Ditto. I took Rocket out this morning in a lightweight cotton sweater/shirt and jeans. As a nod to the 6" of snow, I did put my boots on. It was about 15F.

However, if I'm actually going for a walk or to the dog park, I look more like Joyce. Only I opt for down over fur. I'll have to have DH snap a few pics this weekend. He got a new camera for Christmas and will be only too happy to oblige.

I wear lined jeans and also some kind of wind/snow pants over the jeans. I have a very warm jacket with a hood but wear ear muffs too. I have a hard time keeping my fingers warm. Going to buy those heat packs that hunters use to stick in my gloves. Plus, I wear my lined boots. I don't care how strange I look as long as I am warm!

I once had a job that kept me outside for 8 hrs a day during winter, I bought a pair of gloves that uses a battery to heat the gloves. Never had cold fingers again. (that was the only warm spot on my body )
