Me: Man, it is really cold outside.
Selby: Did you say “OUTSIDE”? I like to go outside! Can I please go outside?
Me: Okay but it’s 16 degrees below zero. That’s very cold.
Selby: Don’t be such a weenie Mama. We’re Swiss mountain dogs. We’re built for cold weather.
Me: Okay but don’t say I didn’t warn you. Do you need to go outside Emerson?
Emerson: Heck yeah! I TOTALLY need to be outside right now.
Me: *opens door*
Selby: Yay! I love outsi- HOLY FUZZBALLS IT IS COLD OUT HERE! Let me back in!
Emerson: Yeah, I totally need to be inside right now.
Me: I told you it was really cold out there. It’s 33 below with the windchill.
Emerson: Mama you know I’m not that good with numbers. But I think maybe my whiskers are frozen.
Selby: It’s so cold I can’t even wag my tail properly.
Me: I thought you guys were “built for cold weather”.
Selby: Mama that’s not ordinary cold out there. It’s brutal.
