Helllp-My dog is Anti-Cold weather!!

Okay, I'm in the middle of potty/house training a 14 week old French Bulldog, & so far he's been amazing. This morning, the temperature was in the low 30's, and the windchill of 28. Rainy, foggy and wet! I set him at the door twice, and he ran back inside. Then two minutes later left me a GIANT present on the floor. WTH. The colder weather is new to us as well, having just moved from Texas, but seriously, if this is any indication of the future of our winter, we have to figure out something else. This is NOTHING compared to the extreme cold temps we will be experiencing by December-January.  Maybe I should be picking him up & setting him in the grass, versus giving him the option of going out if he feels like it.???? Ideas?

Living in Montana-and cooking up a STORM

Montana has been such a SURPRISE! First of all, I am a CITY girl through & through! I never thought that Montana would be so beautiful, or that I could be content living in a small town (by my standards). We visited Galcier this summer (amazing), and even just driving outside the city and seeing the Rocky mountains all around you, with snow covered peaks, will never get old.

Our goal is to see as much on this state as we can in the next 4 & a half years, and not to get stuck in the house all winter. The weather is starting to change now, & I can't wait to see the temperature difference & get out and experience some winter sports. Don't miss the Dallas heat-yet-but I probably will later.

I am getting ready to "hunker" (sp?) down and start doing some cooking!
