You poor people,I can't imagine -17 here in UK if it's - 5 at night everybody moans and hibernates,your heating bills must be enormous
....

Let us not confuse Fahrenheit (which we Americans employ for temperature measurement) with Celsius, which you Brits and Canadians use. -5 Celsius equals 23 Fahrenheit. -17 Fahrenheit, which is what was quoted as the windchill factor for the quaint Hamlet of Dexter's Furrybutt, New York, is equivalent to -27 Celsius. The actual temperature was probably closer to 0 Fahrenheit, or about -18 Celsius. That is why some of our Chihuahuas wear those delightful winter coats. Here in Hilton Head, South Carolina, which is near Savannah, Georgia, the coldest recent temperatures experienced by Simcha's furry butt have been 25 degrees Fahrenheit, which is a relatively temperate -4 degrees Celsius. With his warm little coat in place, he takes it all in stride.

hahahaha u like my location name huh lmao! ;) thank u for the xplanation! i never know hot to convert those measurements. and wow u are so lucky to only get that temp! when i was takin the kids out to do their business the snow/ice made it reall difficult to walk and was tough on dexter's paws as when he came in he was like walking with his legs more up than usual for a little bit until his fee warmed up. KC was fine though, she just ran in :laughing5:

Aww what a great action shot and the one of them sleeping is just too cute! As for -17F (-27C), poor you. I don't even think my chis would function in that weather. lol Being from Quebec, I'm very familiar with temperatures like that and wow I really don't miss it. It's inhumane. :laughing5:

I am at an age (old)when i was brought up with Fahrenheit,before we went over to Celsius.But they still use both on weather forecasts here in UK.

You have two of the most adorable Chihuahuas!

It's been really cold here, too. I've been trying to get Cuddles to use a puppy pad for now, till the weather warms up, but I don't think she quite understands that it's not a toy. I haven't even been comfortable with letting her out in such frigid temperatures, but maybe I'm just overprotective of my little girl. The wind chill was -15 to -20 last night, probably worse, since the actually temperature was -5 by 10 pm.

How do you keep their feet from freezing? We had the same temps here in TN. I had a few scares with Midgie. I put her out to pee and she would act like she found a spot to go, but I guess her feet would start freezing and she'd go to the other side of the yard and back and forth. She never got to go and tried to make it back to the house when she collapsed in the yard wimpering. I ran out in my socks and grabbed her and warmed her feet up. She had her thundershirt on and a winter coat. I tried to make little booties out of a glove, but they just fell off her feet. I'll be so glad when all this cold weather is over.
