Tiny dog owner here, if my Yorkie is out in the cold for a minute or even less he starts shaking and is completely frozen...he needs his jacket. It's not cold here all the time, I need a jacket so does my dog.
Also working at PetSmart, this idea that fish are disposable breaks my heart. So many people come in with the attitude that "its only a fish", "if it dies I'll just buy another one, "Oh well it will probably die anyways"...I could go on for hours. Meanwhile I would be devastated if one of my clowns died. I've become very attached to them.
