I Have no Need for Winter Accessories

Many of the humans have been complaining about the weather, but I personally think it is delightful.  I did see an article on the Internet suggesting that dogs be dressed in coats and booties in this kind of weather.   I have to tell you that I disagree vehemently with that conclusion.  I'm sure there are dogs that can benefit from the extra warmth, but I'm a Siberian Husky, and I don't need a coat.  I have my own coat that works very well at keeping me warm.  I guess the booties might be good particularly for protecting paws from the chemicals and salt that many of the humans use to melt the snow and ice.  However, this dog does not like to wear booties and does not allow the humans to touch my paws  except in extreme circumstances--mainly if I'm unconscious.  Some dogs don't mind booties, but I'm not among that group.  Therefore, coats and booties are acceptable only if the dog approves which is the same thing that applies to baths.  A few dogs enjoy baths, but most do not. This is why the humans must have the dog's paw signed permission which allows the humans to perform said procedure.   That document had better be approved by a notary also.

Demon Flash Bandit (Dog Who Doesn't Wear a Coat or Booties)


  1. As always, I agree with ya Big Dog. I don't need no stinkin clothes. Well, I do wear a coat sumtimes, but only when it's really cold. Otherwise, I jus' stay inside.

  2. Hmmm, I like baths and clothes. Not at da same time though.
