Sweater Weather


For me, "sweater weather" refers to temperatures below 70 degrees - and if there's a drop from 100 to low 70's in any 24-hour-period that will probably feel chilly too.



Toby, being mostly a retriever, loves cold weather. He'd much prefer to walk when it's 40 degrees than when it's warm outside. I never worry about leaving him out for a couple of hours in our big fenced yard on a day when it's sunny and in the 40's. 


Today is sunny and clear, too nice to crate Toby while I get my hair done. But the temperatures will start dropping this afternoon to the mid-30's.


It's sweater weather for Toby today. He'll find a sunny spot and be cozy on yard patrol. The sweater is mostly for my peace of mind, honestly. 


And also because he looks darn cute in it.

  2. My Poodles love sweaters and don't need them. My dogs hate sweaters and do need them. Go figure.

    1. Oh ugh. 10 degrees is just so hostile. Like the surface of Venus or something. This is why we can never live north of Virginia ever.

  8. So cute! Since Rita hates wearing stuff, she is happy to live somewhere where it pretty much never gets cold enough for sweater weather. (At least, not for her, with her thick coat!) (For instance... tomorrow will be the coldest day we've had in AGES - and the high will be 57. That's "freezing" to me, but Rita will love it. Like Toby, she prefers the cool weather to the hot!)

  9. The sweater should keep him warm. We have had freezing temperatures in the single digits but the brown dawgs want to be out in it anyway. They are just getting winter coats because we had a warm fall. They don't care. The idiots will stand out there in snow and lift their legs because their paws are so cold. lol
