' Tho the weather outside is frightful…'

… but also exciting for many of our furry friends. Interesting to think about how many of them are experiencing snow for the first time. For all our rescue pups from the south this is a huge deal. After this winter they definitely deserve a New England Dog Certification! More information about our pets and the cold weather is below. First! We must go to the ever changing…


Last week we talked about the desk at Crate moving up front and the new, glass (what-used-to-be garage doors- are now) picture windows. How do our pooches feel about the change? Many of them stop to look out the picture window to watch their owners drive away. The space where the desk used to be is now a puppy pen- so cute!

Raining Cats and Dogs

Our pups! Who can’t see anything but walls of snow while walking outside! At least we can take care of your paws! Tell your caretakers to check out our PAWZ disposible booties. Many of you are familiar with our favorite dog bed – the Bowser donut. We have some new patterns in the store (and of course you can always special order from the swatches catalog!). The plushy, cushy West Paw mats, in a selection of colors are great for crates or alone. Sorry to say, we are only half way through winter– so we ordered more of the handmade Chilly Dog sweaters. Visit us soon!

Winter Care for Canines

General Concerns:
Winter’s cold air brings many concerns for responsible dog owners. Keep the following precautions in mind:

•Don’t leave your dog outside in the cold for long periods of time. Wind chill makes days colder than actual temperature readings. Be attentive to your dog’s body temperature, and limit its time outdoors.

•Adequate shelter is a necessity. Keep your dog warm, dry and away from drafts. Tiles and uncarpeted areas may become extremely cold, so make sure to place blankets and pads on floors in these areas.

•Be extra careful when walking or playing with your dog near frozen lakes, rivers or ponds. Your dog could slip or jump in and get seriously injured.
