No matter what I have to take my dog out a couple times throughout the day. Even if it's just for a few minutes I bundle up as though I am walking to work-slush pants, coat, hat, boots, scarf etc. My husband will throw on flip flops and walk out into the snow to take the dog out. :/
It is also likely that I will go out the check the mail, which is located on another part of the building I live in. The area it is in, and with how slippery it is, I am not likely to go there the same time I take my dog out.
