5 Wonders of Winter with a Pet

The joys of cold days and warm hearts

Whether you love the invigorating temperatures and the snow-covered wonderland or not, pets make this time of the year better. Here are some reasons why it’s great to have a pet in the winter!

1. Winter Coat
My dog Kelly has the perfect winter coat: flowing, luxurious auburn fur that gets beautifully full during the long, cold months. Boy, am I envious! If your dog has short fur, she might appreciate a store-bought sweater or coat, giving you a fun excuse to nurture your fashionista!

2. Entertainment
Are you missing dates with friends and other outings because it’s not as easy (or compelling) to get out in the cold, messy weather? Luckily, your pet is the perfect form of entertainment. Watching your cat swat at a string, your dog chase its tail, or your hamster spin on its wheel will put a smile on your face.

3. Motivation
Sometimes when it’s really cold, practically nothing can entice me outside. But seeing Kelly staring at the door, begging for a walk, is the push I need. Taking your dog for a stroll is healthy for both of you!   

4. Body Heat
This one is my favorite. Kelly is known for perching on the back of the couch and wrapping around my neck like a scarf. So snuggle up with your dog or cat to stay warm. Pure winter bliss!

5. Snowflakes
There’s no better time to celebrate your pet’s individuality. Like snowflakes, each pet is unique!

Stay warm, have fun and enjoy your special pet this winter!
