Mardi Gras, A Photo Shoot and I Need Your Advice

Hi everyone! Happy Mardi Gras! A holiday I, NOLA, am famous for! Finally, the recognition I deserve!
Here are some of my photo shoot pictures from yesterday.
Now, I need your advice. The family is seriously considering moving to New Hampshire in late May or early June of this year! So what I need to know is how you up north pups stay warm. Do you know of any good Doxie jackets and do you wear booties? Please keep in mind I'm an 8lb Dachshund with a bald neck, chest and belly.
Kisses and Tail Wags,
Dachshund Nola

  5. Happy Mardi Gras, Nola. Beautiful photos of you today.

    Talk to Frankie Furter's wives - they live in Canada and have beautiful coats to keep them warm.

  6. What a great photo shoot! Sounds like an adventure moving to New Hampshire. I guess you'll just have to get a new warmer wardrobe! ;)

  7. What pretty pictures! We have a doxie friend at the dog park named Zori and she double layers a fleece jacket and another jacket when there is snow on the ground, so her tummy doesn't get cold! Not sure where she got them from, but I bet Etsy.com would have some great handmade items if you search there.

    Indiana gets cold very easily too. The solution is many short trips outside instead of a couple long ones. :/

  10. You and the rest of the herd can definitely survive in NH! Meadow looks just like you and loves living in MA. We don't do booties, but we do have lots of sweaters and coats!

  11. Those are such lovely photos. We hope our furriends can help you with your question! If you move here, you won't ever need sweaters or coats or booties. :)

  14. Lola, you rock! We love your photos. Lady ordered my jacket from Dachshund Delights. They made it to my measurements. It fits me the best. Forget the booties. Just be sure to dry off your paws when you come inside. And I usually wear a tee shirt under my jackets cuz they get wet -I am so low to the ground you know. Moving will be an adventure, and I am sure they have heaters. I have a double thick blankie to curl up in.

  17. I'm not sure what doxies wear in the Northeast, but here in the Northwest, we wear lots of stylish sweaters and jackets. Our friend over at www.youdidwhatwithyourweiner.com uses Musher's Secret for her doxies' feets!

  19. Afraid I can't help you with this one Nola, even though Mom's heart is in the North we live in the deep south where it is warm most of the time.

  20. Happy Mardi Gras! I lived in Boston for three years while my momma went to law school and I had all kinds of jackets and coats. I had booties too. They are weird to get used to at first, but they help you not slip on the ice and get that nasty salt stuff in your feet, so after a while, I learned to be good about getting them on.

  21. Wow...New Hampshire! A beautiful state with lots of mountains! Mom and Dad love it!
    I have to deal with a lot of cold weather in Switzerland and Idaho, and Mom bought me a CoverUp coat from Dachshund Delights. There are lots of pictures on my blog; to get all the related posts, you can just use this URL: http://bicontinental-dachshund.blogspot.com/search?q=dachshund+delights.

    Keep on wagging in FL and NH!

    Love,

  24. Hi Miss Nola!

    I live in the snowy mountains of West Virginia, and it's cold here! On my walkies, I wear 2 t-shirts that cover my chest/belly real good, a fleece coat, and a heavier coat that is water-resistant. I don't wear booties though - cuz my dad said no to my mom! You hafta make sure to wipe your paws when you come in - my mommy says that the salt they use to de-ice the roads is bad for us doxies!

  25. Happy Mardi Gras! Party with abandon! A move to NH will be a BIG change for a little girl, but you are spunky and adventurous. The wardrobe might be fun to assemble.

    As always, your photos are marvelous.

  26. Girl, you'll need to learn what the Cavaliers do...tuck 'n roll! That's the only way they can make it out the door on windy, cold winter days! Best of luck!

  27. I could send you one of my snoods and you could use it as a full body warmer Hehe! Deccy x

  28. Nola, there are lots of winter coats, windbreakers, rain slickers, you name it to keep doggies like you warm. That being said, I hate the snow pawsonally!

  29. I love your eyes, Nola, especially in that first photo. They melt me...

    It's very cold and snowy where I live, and my friend has 5 miniature doxies. They do great in the snow and cold even without jackets, as long as they keep moving. When we recently got 3.5' of snow, they were out hiking the next day. They follow behind their mom's snowshoes.

    They have jackets for when they are just hanging around the horse barn with their mom, but I don't know the brand or anything. Hopefully, some of your doxie friends can help with that!

  30. Beautiful pics! Check out noodleandfriends.com, they have beautiful choices made just for doxies for all kinds of cold and wet! We have two and hope to get their new parka for next winter!
