  • Don't Forget To Protect Your Pets From The Cold

    While some animals may bask in a bitter winter day, others would tell their owners how cold they are, if they could.

    Canine Advocates of Newtown President Virginia Jess agrees that some dogs may love the cold, “but not all,” she said. She has noticed her own dog’s discomfort. Of her 40-pound sheltie-collie mix, she said, “I know that when we walk our dog in the snow, she would pick up her feet and I would wipe them off, the salt gets in there.” She also warns, “Animals can get frostbite, too.”
