Funny thing about Ellie B, aka Dogamous Pyle.
Every day, no matter the season, she wakes up with sunny-and-70 in her doggie brain.
A trip out the back door and out the porch should always bring her greener pastures, right? Or at least, her grassy backyard in our Syracuse city neighborhood of Eastwood.
Then she sees the snow and feels the cold. It doesn’t stop her from her morning business, mind you, but it surely does send her back up the few steps to the outside of that back door, awaiting the human to let her back in.
This morning it is 9 degrees.
She lasted, perhaps, one minute out back before that cute face popped back up in the door window. The lure of playing in yesterday’s foot of snow apparently was behind her. Last night, I could hardly coax her back inside. She wanted to lay out on the freezing porch futon one more minute, please. Only the word “cheese” would bring her in with the folks.
Unique, this dog is.
Smile, Ellie B, aka Dogamous Pyle. The world wants to see you.
You will wake up to warm in a season or two, good girl.
Does your pet like to go out in the winter? Or is your pet a homebody in the cold?
