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!"

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 )
