The temperature here this morning is about two or three degrees below zero.  Too cold for the puppies.  Last night, when it was only about zero degrees outside, I noticed that it took only a few seconds out on the pavement before Brea was limping, holding one foot or another off the cold ground.  She looked so miserable that I picked her up and carried her back inside.  Neither of them has figured out that the sooner they go to the bathroom, the sooner we go back inside.  And neither Brea nor Siri seems to have learned that "Hurry Up!" means "go to the bathroom right now".

So I got out Molly's old footies and coat, which she used only a few times, and Brea let me put them on her without a struggle.  Siri was the one who was difficult, constantly getting her nose in the way while I was trying to put the booties on Brea.  Finally we were ready.  I think they helped.

Siri doesn't seem to be bothered by the cold as much, but she has a heavier coat, and supposedly, she's part husky.
