Some not only exist but thrive! I LOVE a good Canadian winter. I'm fascinated
with the beauty it brings. And even in -30 Celsius, if you are properly dressed,
with layering, you will be just fine. It's important to know how to properly layer
in order to stay warm and protected. To me, there is nothing like shoveling snow
for an hour than coming inside and having a cup of hot chocolate, or going for
a walk through the hills of snow in a forest and then sitting by a fire...

There is no such thing as proper layering!

I swear I look like the Michelin man going to winter football games here in VA. I have hot hands stuffed in places you would never think and at the tailgates I bounce heater to heater. My southern blood has never adapted to the cold. LOL When it snows I like to see it and play in it but I swear I can surf or drive in a hurricane but when I try to walk in the snow I just fall face first! My husband even takes my car keys as I can not drive in it no matter what! LOL I have no idea how you deal with it in Canada

I agree with you and I AM Canadian and was born here! I really do love winter and I don't think that I could live somewhere that had nice weather year round, but my body is just not adapted to the really cold. I had a job that required me to go outside quite often so I would wear full snowboarding layered clothes and outerwear and still if the temperature was really cold, parts of my body would go numb every time. Love snow and cold temperatures to a certain point, but not a fan of having my skin sting when I come indoors! I know a few people who have had animals whose ear tips fell off after only being exposed for not very long at all. Poor things.

You girls need to come spend a winter with me, I'll change your mind, we'll have fun.

I admit though, I've been taught to deal with cold since a young age. I mean in
the Russian country we used to bathe outside with freezing well water, just pour
it down on yourself from a bucket! But the walk from the well carrying buckets
of water kept me warm, lol. Also in winter we would bathe in the oh so ghetto
Russian sauna, and then once we come out all nice and hot we'd either jump
into the pond or roll in the snow, naked! Haha! So yes well layered I feel great.
But seriously my hubby is a bushcrafter and is hardcore into nature, he taught
me how to properly layer, and it makes a huge difference. It's not about bulk,
it's about the fabrics you use.

For the dogs, get them running, get their blood pumping and you won't need to
worry about frost bite. Of course the super tiny guys don't need to stay out
long, so short but frequent walks will do. The thing that pisses me off about
winter is not the cold, but the darn salt they put down, THAT is your dog's
worse enemy, that is the reason I put protection on their paws. Because that
nasty stuff literally eats through their poor paw pads.

My lil girl is a baby about the rain..... she hasn't yet been with me thru a snow, so we'll see what this winter holds! She bundles up to go outside.... at most I have concerns about her paws this winter.

She's pad trained, so when it's pouring too hard or too cold she can use the pads. She prefers the outdoors for doing her business though and asks to go outside when I'm home. I work 8-9 hrs a day and she is faithful about using her pads when she is alone.

75 fahrenheit equals what 23 celsius?! Woman, that is practically summer!
And you say I'm nuts! LOL ...ok ok I'm nuts that's true, but nuts are good for you.
