5 B's of Below Zero Weather paw


Brrrrrrrr! After the wonderful spring-like 40-degree weekend, it is hard to get used to these negative temperatures! This kind of day makes me glad I can stay inside most of the time (you know I can't resist chasing any rabbit I see through the snow!)



It is nice that my people take extra precautions in keeping me safe in these cold winter conditions. The 5 B's of Below Zero Weather (or any colder weather) may be good guidelines to follow to keep your pet safe too.


Building - Good shelter is important, especially for a dog that likes to spend time outside. Although a doghouse may be okay in the warmer months, it may be a good idea to let outside dogs or cats inside a barn, insulated building, or maybe even the house when the temperatures dip really low.


Bedding - Dogs like me always know how to give you that "I'll love you if you let me sleep in your bed tonight" kind of look. And cats...well, they just make room in the bed for themselves! Take extra care in bedding your pet in soft, warm bedding that is off the cold floor to keep them extra cozy.


Booties (and other pet clothing) - Sometimes pets, especially the hairless and short hair breeds, may need an extra layer when going outside. Bundle up sensitive paws for extra warmth, to protect against salt, or to keep hair between pads from collecting chunks of ice.


(Extra) Bites of Food - I get pretty hungry after a romp outside. Not only am I exercising, but I'm also trying harder to keep my body warm. I may need a little bit of extra food to keep me going. But watch food intake for those pets that stay indoors more and exercise less during the winter months. Their diet may be fine just the way it is.


Belly rub - Sure I'll take a good belly rub anytime! I always feel especially warm inside when I get a little extra attention.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. <a href="">Seo Plugin</a>
