Hailey is Special

In this cold weather, with the deep snow, I don't think twice about putting Emma and Phod out back without a human. This is a good thing because Emma has to go out to pee every 1-2 hours (and given the extreme cold, I am not up to going out that often - we have had over 30 days so far this year that have been below -25 C/-13 F).

The first time I let those two out and Hailey realized she wasn't joining the other two, she gave me a look. Her look said "why do those dogs get to go out and I the princess have to stay in?"  I looked at her and the first answer that came to my head was "Hailey, it is because you are extra special. You are so special we are worried that if we let you out, we would lose you and we can't have that." She hasn't given me the look since so either this talk did the trick or she has realized it is just tooooooooo cold!

It was warmer Wednesday (yesterday) afternoon while I was working from home. By warmer I mean -15 C or so (it was -30C or so in the morning). To make up for her lack of exercise, Hailey and I went for a special walk, just the two of us. She was soooooo happy. Let's hope we get a few more warmer days!

  26. It is so cold. I get freezy paws real easy, so I hardly go out at all right now. I don't like freezy paws! Try to stay warm and snuggle a lot.
