I’m a child of the Midwest, so I’m familiar with the joys (and sometimes miseries) of growing up in a snow white winter. From snow days to ice skating on our frozen front lawn (yep, the entire lawn froze over), I’ve gotten to experience all of the wonders that come with a beautiful snowfall. So while we may not be getting any flurries here in LA, I thought I’d daydream a bit and collect some wonderful snowy white items for me, my home and my pup!

HUMAN – I feel as though, every year, my search for the perfect set of headphones continues. From the get-go, I’ve been in search of a pair that is both functional and sleek. I’m really digging these crisp white ones from Urbanears, and also love that they come in a bunch of other vibrant colors too.
HOUSE – To find a decorative display piece that I wouldn’t mind adorning a shelf or table with in my home is like happening upon the holy grail. It rarely happens. But there’s something captivating about this simple, white antelope sculpture that it might just be making it’s way to a tabletop near me sometime soon.
If you do live in a region that gets really frigid in the winter months, there are definitely a few things you can do to ensure that your pups stay just as warm, cozy and safe as you do.
- Bundle up. If your dog has a short coat or is sensitive to the cold weather, have them sport a sweater or jacket to keep them comfortable throughout the season.
- Keep your eye on the ground. The winter season brings a new array of toxins to keep an eye out for, particularly antifreeze and ice salt pellets. Make sure you keep an eye on where your dog is sniffing around and wipe their paws after every walk.
- Paw-tection. The cold pavement and ice can be harsh on your pup’s paws, so consider covering them up with anti-slip booties. They may not enjoy them while on, but they’ll appreciate having protected paws.
- Get cozy indoors. The winter was made for warm blankets and roaring fires, so when at all possible, avoid the outdoors and find activities to keep you and the pup busy inside. Disclaimer: When pups remain inactive for too long, weight gain is imminent. So don’t forget to exercise your dogs both indoors and out.
