Springtime in Oregon can be unpredictable--and if you're a dog--it can be a little heartbreaking. Just ask Sinead the Boston terrier here. She may look awfully cute in her little sweater, but deep down, her little soul is crushed.
Very small dogs--and Boston terriers in general--are most comfortable when the weather is warm. Sinead is happiest when it's about 82 outside and about 82 inside. That's when she stretches out on the floor or in the grass with a smile on her face. And when she gets up from those comfy spots, she has a little spring in her step. You can see her come alive when it's warm.
We had a few days last week when the temperature moved up into the 60s. The sun was shining, the grass was waving in the breeze and Sinead got a little excited. She spent some time sleeping in sun puddles in the morning, and in the afternoon, she hopped out into Popoki's catio for some fresh air. She felt like spring was here.
But by Saturday, that warm weather disappeared. We were back into the 40s and 50s with rain falling in sheets from a black sky. Sinead was absolutely heartbroken about that, and she started sighing dramatically before she'd head out to the yard for her potty breaks.
So for now, she's back in her little sweaters all day long. And I've pulled her bed in front of the heater, so she can soak up the warmth. I keep telling her that spring is really, really coming. But until it arrives for good, she's prepared to brave the cold.
Has spring sprung where you are? And what do your pets think of it? Drop me a note in the comments and let me know, okay?
