Let’s Check In At The C.O. Weather Center (Updated!)

We asked y’all to send in a photo of your little critter dealing with the snowy frigid weather. Let’s take a look! (Several from Illinois, BTW.)

First up is Meridith The Corgi, who we first saw getting snow-stuck here. Meri has been bizzy. (Bounding through snow must be hard when you’re so stubby!)

And now to our submitters!

“This is Barkley, enjoying his first snow. He is originally from California but is doing quite well in Montana (with the help of some fashionable cold-weather gear.) -Jamie I.


Logan is a sweetheart that is waiting for his furr-ever home at Save-A-Pet in Grayslake, IL. where the temp right now is a chilling -12 degrees (real feel -42 degrees.) I was out in the snow with him yesterday for some playtime and photos.” -Sandra P. [More photos here. -Ed]

“This is Bisco, our Pembroke Corgi named. We live in Indiana and are experiencing the “Polar Vortex.” We don’t typically put Bisco in clothes, but felt we had to for his safety in this windchill of -30 degrees. Video by Ryan K. Photo by me, Alyssa L.”


“Here’s The Notorious FIG again…she’s a little chilly in the -8 temps. Wind chill here in St. Louis is -33!” -Greer B.

“This is how my sister protects her sweetheart rotty, Bandit, from the -17 wind chills this morning in Deerfield, IL. (Hey, it’s warming up in the Chicago area.) Bandit sports socks to the utmost Cute Degree!” -Jeanne R.

“This is a photo of my two dogs Nina (L) and Tito, before our morning walk in the NYC Polar Vortex. Tito spent 3/4 of the walk inside my coat, despite his hoodie sweatshirt, 3-legged fleece jammies, camo coat, pompom hat, and booties. Nina didn’t want to come inside and she only had on a hoodie & a coat.” -Katherine N.

“I am an avid fan of your site and would love to submit this video of Kima, my Corgi romping in snow that was way too deep for her little body! She loves the snow and we have a hard time telling her she can’t stay out and play in when the temperatures were so far below zero here in the Chicago area. BTW, it gets PERFECT around 0:37.” -Kerri M.



  1. I LOVE how Bisco walks in his widdle boots. BOOTS!

    Those pups look doggone cute in their outfits! So glad their owners are bundling them up. Hope people are taking in any strays that they see. That’s how my mom got her first cat – a kitten turned up on her porch during a Montana blizzard. She was five months pregnant with me, and Brenda the cat lived to be 24 years old! .

  3. I read this at first that the 5 month old kitten was pregnant with you! 🙂

  4. Me too, haha!!

  5. Peeps, do you notice which creature is missing from every single one of these photos? Cats! No cat pictures. They’re all at home cozying up to a cheerful fire while the doggehs are romping in the cold white stuff. Gives new vitality to “cat’s rule, dogs drool”.

  6. What cute pictures and videos. That little Meridith for sure loves snow we giggled when she was walking with her nose being used like a shovel to make the path for her. Little Bisco walking in his little snow booties made us laugh out loud. Loved all of these, thank you for sharing them.

  7. and me!

  8. Pro Tip: Shovel a little area in the yard for your pooch to make poopcicles. And remember…It’s not a real squat unless your derriere is in the open air!

    moi, aussi.

  10. phred's mom says:

    Thanks for the reminder, jnyjny, I’ll
    keep this in mind.

  11. I absolutely love Kima swimming through the snow! ADORABLE!

  12. Apparently some people need something to do on snow days.

    Seriously though, those are adorable, Bisco looks like a giant sock.
