We had a bit of snow in Seoul the other day, not a blizzard by any means but enough that a good inch or so was still in the garden when we woke the next morning. How could I possibly resist the temptation to deck the dogs in their finest winter coats and drag them outside?
I had to use a bucket of dog treats to lure them out. Perhaps not surprisingly Elfi (she's the short hair for you new comers) seemed to quite enjoy herself once she got over the initial shock. On the other hand, Ferdi (the long hair) spent most of the time glued to one spot - apparently unable to move - with a look that said 'you have got to be kidding'.
Ostensibly I am 'training' them so that they get used to the cold and ice and snow and continue to go outside to 'do their business'. But you and I both know I'm really just using them for my own amusement. Those outfits! Ferdi's tentative steps! Elfi's romping! That's what pets are for, right?
