Blue Monday – Dog Days of Winter

Today is Blue Monday, considered the most depressing day of the year, but I have to wonder if our dogs get the winter blues as well? Dog Days of Winter I’m no expert, nor do I have any scientific facts, but I personally believe it’s possible for dogs to get the winter blues.
