The days are getting shorter. The weather is getting colder. How will I ever make it through another winter?
Oh, yeah, I forgot. I have a dog. I’ll be fine.
Winter Survival – Doggy Style
If you have a dog, you’ll have everything you need to get through a long, cold winter:
Foot Warmer – No need to worry about frostbite while watching television. Just slip your tootsies under the Newf. Ahhhhh, instant warmth.
Personal Coach – You don’t have to gain weight over the holidays. One hyper dog barking her head off is all the motivation you’ll need to get your outdoor exercise, no matter what the weather.
Bed Warmer – Assuming you can find room in the bed at all, there’s nothing that will chase the chill away faster than a pile of puppies on your pillows.
Dryer – What cools you down when your skin is wet? Evaporation. But a rough, dry tongue licking you dry as you leave the shower makes sure you’ll never feel the chill.
Humidifier – The only thing worse than the cold is feeling parched by dry air. Luckily, dogs are natural humidifiers. Need a little extra moisture? Get a drooler.
Hand Warmers – Carry plastic bags in your pocket to conveniently carry the “hand warmers” your dog produces on a walk. Just remember to hold them away from your nose.
Pre-rinsed Dishes – Holiday baking and entertaining is exhausting. Luckily you have someone to make dishwashing go faster by offering pre-rinse services to get rid of stubborn, dried on food.
Dog Wool – One good grooming session should offer up enough wool to make a small pair of mittens. Or, for a more eclectic material, just empty your vacuum bag.
Indoor exerciser – Trimming the fur growing between the pads of a Golden Retriever will make anyone break a sweat. Especially if you have to catch her first.
Lantern – Because no matter what, they always bring light to the darkest days.
How does your dog help you survive the winter?

It’s free. It’s fun. And I promise it will be the best gift you give and get this holiday season.
