To Walk Or Not To Walk

DSCN1323Well, my little guys Mike and Chaps have been experiencing cabin fever lately but with the single-digit temps. we here in the midwest have been experiencing, we’ve been reluctant to take them for their walk.

After Mikes’ continual running to the door as soon as we are anywhere near it, my husband thought “okay” I’ll try them just around the block” and the temps. did reach a balmy 15 degrees today.

So I put their sweaters on and off they all went….and then back they all came!!!!

Halfway around the block my little chihuahuas’ feet froze up, they wouldn’t/couldn’t move – so he swept them up and carried them home. They may be little, 13 & 9 lbs. but he was huffing & puffing when he walked in the door. I wrapped all 3 in blankets (husband included) and they’re all snuggly and warm now.


………….guess the walks will have to wait until spring with these 3 babies!!!


  1. Very cute! That is how we cuddle up with Macho lately because we are also in the midwest! Yesterday the high was 7 degrees with a wind chill of negative 12! Definitely too cold out there for little chihuahuas :)

  2. You have the cutest dogs! I have two chihuahuas too - Shiver and Chico.

    Hope it warms up there soon so the dogs can get back to regular walks.

  3. Hello, thank you for following our blog.
    This is such awful weather isn't it, our dogs didn't go out for over 2 weeks when the snow was bad here in England.
    Chihuahuas and cold weather just don't go together.
    Glad you are all snuggly warm now.
