It’s been mild weather in Chicago for our Weekly Walks, but winter is finally here with steady, below-freezing temps in the forecast. If you’re curious about the typical attires people don around these parts for the season, we did a short post about just that some time ago. Click here to read it.

Article of the Week: Communal Companion
Buddy loves people. He loves people so much that he has separation anxiety when he is left alone. So the Sunrise Senior Living facility adopted the Jack Russell Terrier mix and gave him people to spend time with 24/7. He roams the halls and eases residents’ stress and loneliness by letting them pet him, teach him tricks, and walk him. He sounds like he would be a wonderful member of any community, and we are glad he found a home where he can love many people and many people can love him. Click here to read a write-up about him.

Friday Fun: The Stairs! The Horror!
Some days the stairs look steeper than they actually are, and a little help and encouragement is necessary to get you down them and on your way — like this video of Wilma the pup and Simon the big dog shared on Facebook. It’s just under two minutes long and we agree with the caveat about viewing it: “Your heart will melt.” Click here to watch the video.
