She went on to say that while the response to the pics has been overwhelmingly positive, a lot of people informed her that it's illegal to bring non-service dogs into stores, and her presence might expose service dogs and their owners to potential risk.

Please Keep Your Pets Inside In The Cold Weather

If it’s too cold for you, its too cold for them.

Your pets, you love them.

And in the winter months, it's easy to think that they're having a great ol' time outdoors.

The cold affects pets much in the same way it affects people, explained Cathy Meeks, an internist with Blue Pearl Veterinary Clinic in Tampa, Florida.

"A common misconception is that because of their fur they can tolerate colder temperatures," she told BuzzFeed. In reality, Meeks said, you should think of a dog or cat's fur as about as warm as a light fleece jacket.

And that's not particularly warm on a day when temperatures drop into the teens or single digits.

A dog or cat's weight and age can also impact how long they can and should stay out in the cold.

"Thinner people get colder faster, and it’s the same way with dogs," said Meeks. "They have less tolerance than dogs that are heavier." And, she adds, "middle age dogs that are healthy are going to be much better at dealing with the cold than puppies or geriatric dogs that have diseases."

Meeks' rules definitely apply to animals you might otherwise think of as "outside" pets.

Just because a pet might ~normally~ live primarily outside, says Meeks, doesn't mean you shouldn't bring them inside during cold weather streaks.

Cat owners should be especially careful about their outdoor cats in cold months. "One of the things we see with cats is that they try and find the warmest place outdoors — and that's often under the hood of a car. People will then start their cars and that'll cause a lot of damage," said Meeks.

Tim Flach is a world-renowned photographer who's been in the field for decades. For several years a lot of his work has centered around animals, and as his photography has taken him to various places around the globe, he's seen a need to focus on species that are under threat. The result of this body of work is a book titled Endangered.

He said after having worked with animals for so long, he found he naturally started to focus on conservation. In fact, the subjects of Endangered largely came from discussions he had with conservationists.

17 Times Fiona The Hippo Was The Best Part Of 2017

by Sam Stryker

2017 was a time to feel HIP.

Everyone knows 2017 has been, um... How do I put this? QUITE THE YEAR. But it hasn't been ALL bad. Sassy, gassy, classy social media sensation Fiona the Hippo has been the one thing that has united us ALL, and reminded us that there is SOME good left in the world.

Like when she was basically every person who is single when she photobombed this couple's engagement photo...

Instagram: @hayley_roll

...and when she gave cute kisses through the glass to this young visitor to the Cincinnati Zoo.

Instagram: @cincinnatizoo

When someone photoshopped her to be the Time Person of the Year...and we actually kind of wished that it were true.

Instagram: @cincinnatizoo

When she made sassy side-eye look this cute.

Instagram: @cincinnatizoo

And when we caught her checking herself out in the mirror (but TBH, who could blame her?!).

Instagram: @cincinnatizoo

When she was ALWAYS camera-ready.

Instagram: @cincinnatizoo

And when she was just TOO damn adorable.

Instagram: @cincinnatizoo

When she exhibited perfect balance surfing on her mom's back.

Instagram: @cincinnatizoo

And when she even made farting look graceful.

Instagram: @cincinnatizoo

When she made yawning iconic.

Instagram: @cincinnatizoo

And when she bellowed like this:

Instagram: @cincinnatizoo

When she played with bubbles (I could watch this on loop for hours):

Instagram: @cincinnatizoo

And when she celebrated Halloween.

Instagram: @cincinnatizoo

When she proudly showed off her chubby chin.

Instagram: @cincinnatizoo

And when she was as graceful as a ballerina.

Instagram: @cincinnatizoo

When it was nap time.

Instagram: @cincinnatizoo

And finally, when she celebrated her first Christmas (obviously she made the Good List).
