Don't Let Your Dog Freeze.

With the weather finally acting like winter, it is going to be too cold for any dog that has to live outside. They should be brought in. When a dog is tied to a chain or rope, they can't get to any cover, if they don't have a shelter. But, feral or abandoned dogs can find caves and shelter to get out of the weather. This doesn't make it any easier on them, as they have to feed when they can. But, I see dogs everyday where I live, go without food or water. It is vital that outside dogs have plenty of food and their water checked everyday. The food provides the body with fuel to burn, and the water keeps the body hydrated. Bring in your dog(s) this week-end, as it is to be in the single digits.
