I have finally gotten to a place that I can stand to have another dog. It's been two years and my loneliness for a canine companion has overcome my grief for the best dog I have ever had; except this time I do not have a cold weather dog. TJ is a boxer/wiener dog mix and let me tell you that getting a puppy (little, little puppy) in the winter is hard. She is cold all the time, she is fearless all the time and for the first time in my life I am on the verge of spoiling a dog.
Speaking of spoiling, I need to get her a new coat that covers her tummy, fits close on her butt and has a collar. I have bought and discarded many coats that have some but now all of these traits and as she grows I need to be able to buy the same coat more then once until about April cause I live where it's winter six months out of the year.
We have started training so I don't want to be distracted by her shivering. She is now almost four months old
