Monday Mentions: Yellow Dogs, Cold Weather Tips & Writerly Predictions


Is it cold and snowy where you live? NOT ME! Well, it’s colder’n a froe but no snow in North Texas so we’ve escaped the worst of it. But those in the HOLY HELL HECK snow line have my sympathies. Please remember the animals, too. Just because they’ve got fur does NOT mean they’re immune from frostbite or deadly hypothermia (see first aid tips, below). Also, remember that drifting snow against fences can make the enclosed back yard easy to escape…this is NOT the time for pets to be out lost.

Monday Mentions is the mash-up-day of all the neato-torpedo writer links and videos, pet schtuff and bling and writer-icity crappiocca collected over the past week.  For new followers to the blog, welcome! and you can expect more cat and dog specific schtuff later in the week on Wednesday and Friday. For now…enjoy the YouTube cute-icity at the end!

Monday Mentions: Yellow Dogs, Cold Weather Tips & Writerly Predictions — 4 Comments

  1. Thanks for the Yellow Dog info. I have dogs that are very reactive around other dogs. I’m going to add a yellow ribbon to their leashes. Most people probably won’t know about it but if enough people ask I can spread the word!

    • Great! Yes, just getting folks to ask will go a long way toward educating people. Thanks for the comment–and glad your dogs are in a home that recognizes what they need. 🙂

  2. Heck, we had rain yesterday!

    Rain in January never, ever, happens where I live. Average temperature is Minus 40C for the month. About a half hour north of us, they had Minus 62C a week ago. And now rain.


    As to having pets outside, well, my old buddy Mark used to love Minus 40C. But he was half German Shepherd and half Husky (there was supposed to be Wolf in the bloodline too). Mark had the most incredible undercoat, and we had to keep him inside as much as possible in summer, where the air conditioning kept him comfortable.

    But most dogs and cats aren’t like him. Frostbite is a common problem for pets up here.
