Blizzard conditions started here a few hours ago, and are scheduled to last through noon tomorrow.
This makes it a perfect time to talk about the weatherproof nature of the Cardigan Welsh Corgi coat. As the AKC breed standard states, the Cardigan coat: "Lies relatively smooth and is weather resistant."
After a mere 10 minutes outside, Ziggy was thankful for this feature:
What is this thing lurking by the back door?
Should we let it in?
It's me, mom: Ziggy!
Thank you for letting me in - it's snowy out there.
Maybe I'll just go in my crate.
Do I have to come out to be dried off?
Ok. Just don't put me back out into the snow.
P.S.: In case you're wondering, Rip was outside for the same amount of time, but came back in with almost no snow on him. The advantage of perpetual motion.
