Just wondering. The early part of the week looks to be abnormally cold and windy, so it might be one of the few times in his life Fasb doesn't get out at least once a day. Kinda wondering how I'm going to handle it. Fasb can stay in. We taught him to go to the basement and go on a pee pad when we're not home or can't take him out for whatever reason. Problem is, he's used to going outside after meals, so he often waits for me to take care of him and whines/begs/hangs around acting odd when I don't take the hint and get him ready to go. I kinda think he's going to be upset and disruptive if I can't get him outside. Note: usually, he'll hang around "begging" for a bit, and if we don't take the hint or can't take him out that time, he'll eventually go to the pad and do his business. Cold doesn't seem to bother him, but I worry about taking him out when it's really frigid. Generally, I walk him late mornings and early evenings to avoid the coldest weather around here, so it's usually in the 20's when we go out. Maybe teens some during January. Last night it was 9 degrees when we went out for the evening walk. He didn't seem at all bothered by the temp. His previous owners walked him at 6 AM regardless of weather, so I imagine he's had a fair number of walks in single digits/sub zero temps (I take him with me when I get up and get the newspaper, but when it's really cold early in the morning, I either leave him in or just go out to the paper box with him and don't walk him). I vaguely remember waiting around on a sunny Sunday when we first got him for the temp to rise above zero so I could take him out. I've heard various things about walking him in the cold, but he's never seemed to have a problem either keeping warm or with his paws. I worry most about the paw pads getting cold since they aren't covered in fur and the ground is often snowy/icy when it is this cold. Anyway, just curious how people who live in colder climates deal with walking during the winter months. Any tips for keeping him calm and normal if he has to stay in some on Monday and Tues (he should get out Monday morning at a minimum).
