Dog prefers the gas fireplace

I have a fourteen-year-old miniature poodle named Oscar, and oscar has been area of our family since she was just a puppy, however as he’s grown older, he’s become difficult of hearing, doesn’t see as well & has difficulty going up & down the stairs.

  • The Winter time weather is especially problematic, and she only weighs twelve-pounds & is a entirely tiny dog.

Our local area gets around many to multiple feet of snow per year. The snow can accumulate by multiple feet in a single day! Unless I shovel a path for the dog, she can’t walk around outside. It’s occasionally necessary to shovel multiple times per day. I clear the snow from the front door & create an intricate walking path that winds through the trees. Because of the sub zero hot & cold temperatures outside, Oscar usually wears a knitted jacket. She prefers her jackets & does not prefer to take them off. She tends to shiver, even inside the house. I set the temperature control a little higher for the sake of the dog’s comfort. All of us have a gas fireplace to supplement heat in the kitchen. I’ve sited Oscar’s bed directly in front of the fireplace. She prefers to sleep on her little dog bed with the heat from the fireplace blasting on him. Her fur becomes entirely warm to the touch. When she comes in from the outside with snow clinging to her paws & settles in front of the heater, the whole kitchen aromas of wet dog. I am just cheerful that our dog is comfortable. The Winter time weather tends to last for more than half of the year & is downright brutal… Keeping a warm loft is honestly a challenge.
