This may not be the prettiest picture, but it means a lot to me because is really shows the love a dog can bring into your life Unfortunately countless dogs are stuck in shelters, just longing for someone to love. Luckily in Norway we don’t have a problem with homeless dogs like many other places, but we still want to help.
That’s why I want to let you all know about the amazing fund raiser @the_blueboys is hosting until the end of tomorrow. They want to raise money for some selected shelters and get it to them before Christmas. I have donated some money and I hope that some of you will too. It doesn’t have to be much. Even $1 dollar will bring them closer to their goal. Check out their page or my story to find a link to their go fund me. They will be giving away @darrenandphillip things tomorrow to some of the people who donate so follow their story tomorrow.
Please consider helping and sharing! Let’s help some dogs find their forever homes in time for Christmas
After I wrote about Arnold’s @hurttacollection rain coat, a lot of people asked me what type of coat I recommended for them. So I thought I would make a post about the different types of coats we have tested
This post is not sponsored
Why coats: Staffies don’t have an undercoat so they don’t always handle cold very well. In addition to this Arnold doesn’t have the best hips. Even though he isn’t bothered now and might never have an issue with them, we have (among other things) been recommended to make sure he is warm and dry as a form of preventing problems in the future
Here we go! Description in the same order as the photos:
1. Hurtta frost jacket: A soft shell jacket that helps protect against wind and cold. We like to use this if there is a lot of snow, but not too cold. Since the zip is on the back, snow can’t get into the chest area like it sometimes does when arnold jumps into deep snow with his other jackets.
2. Hurtta torrent coat: We use this when it is raining or windy, but not too cold. If your dog isn’t bothered by cold, but you want to help them stay dry, this coat is great. It is light, durable and helps protect them from the elements.
3. Hurtta summit parka: Same design as the torrent coat, but with a thin layer of padding for colder days. We used this last year when we lived on the west coast where the weather is milder. We recently sold this coat because Arnold needed something warmer for the freezing winters in Oslo.
4. Hurtta ultimate warmer: Similar to the summit parka, but with a thicker layer of padding. We use this when it is really cold outside and we are going to be outdoors for while.
5. Back on track fleece: Not waterproof and we intend to use this while warming up/down, in cold indoor places like a cold car or on cold clear days. Back on track coats have a ceramic infused fabric that is supposed to increase blood circulation and help reduce joint pain among other things. I don’t know how much science is behind it, but I have heard good things and since I wanted a fleece for Arnold I thought I would give this one a go. • I hope some of you found this helpful. Let me know if you have any questions
