The winter doldrums are officially over. There, we said it, and we don’t care about jinxes.

However, as much as you want to get out of the house, your pets possibly want to get out even more. They’ve been sitting inside all winter and sometimes braving the cold snow to go outside to do their “business.” It’s time to get them out and about as well!
