I shared this before but we gotta get these signed into law BEFORE NEXT WINTER. OR SUMMER... NO MORE DOGS FREEZING TO DEATH OR DOING OF HEAT EXHAUSTION.

The vet guideline is if YOU CAN'T STAND more than five seconds on concrete, ice, the ground with your bare hand, then it's too hot or cold for them. If you need a heavy coat, they need at least a sweater. If you need a sweater, they need a light windbreaker or Doggie tee-shirt.

These animals we NOT PUT ON THIS EARTH TO GUARD YOUR HOUSE AND YARD. They are family, indoor pets. If you don't have the means to keep a pet warm or cool INSIDE WITH YOU then you DO NOT have the means to have a pet at all!!!!
