You may have missed this on the news recently.. a dog, left outside in a dog house in Hartford, CT, froze to death.
A horrific thing to even think about for those of us who love and cherish our pets..
But, believe it or not, there ARE people who think it's perfectly OK to chain a dog up in the backyard, and let them stay there, 24/7. With just a dog house for shelter.
This vet tried to stay out in a dog house, in the winter, for just ONE night, to prove that dogs should be brought into the house.
He was bundled up in the best of cold weather gear.. but could only stay out there for 4 hours.
Animal control officers in Michigan are planning on spending a frigid night outside too, hoping to bring awareness of pets that are left out in the cold..
