I don't have any pictures of me, but when it gets real cold I like to set up the heated chuckit station:

When I am our hiking or sledding, I cannot go without a pair of zippo handwarmers. Those things are fantastic and throw out a lot of heat. I do tend to smell like lighter fluid, but that's ok.

Yep, you definitely live in Michigan! It's been a particularly cold week here. At least you get out and walk--since Fozzie died, I've had no motivation! Time for another dog...

I'm not sure what I love most about this thread - the clothing part or the poop chart. We've been struggling with Sunshine's food / poo these past few weeks. GF and I are also oversharing about what we scoop when we take puppy for her walks.

I'm trying to decide which would be less gross - printing the poop chart and leaving it for her when she gets home or sending a link to it via email.


As for winter wear - I bought some snow boots for our Christmas trip to CO a few weeks ago, and they've been a staple for my morning walk (even when it's sunny out!) I tend to over-layer since I hate to be cold.

No pics, but I just got a Lands End Stadium Squall Coat. I've never had a long coat like that and I'm loving how warm my legs are.

My DH was bundling up last night to take Vinnie for a walk and Vinnie said ( yes he talks all the time) "just grow some fur like me and you won't have to put all that crap on"
My DH can't even keep "fur" on his head

It certainly could be, I've collected enough dog hairs over the years to make us all a coat!
