Fighting Over That Dachshund Bed Warmer



Meet black and tan smooth 'Poochie,' and human Laura Nichols, who hail from Maplewood, New Jersey.  Poochie is a hot commodity in the household because the humans have entered a "furnace abstinence" contest (What, are you joking us?) where bragging rights and an iceberg-shaped trophy are at stake for those who can go the longest without turning on their furnaces. According to USA Today: Nichols and her four teenage children vie for the use of the 30-pound dog as an overnight leg warmer to stave off the 50-degree chill in their home.
We would normally tell you to read more about this green activity at USA Today, but we're hoping this trend doesn't catch on.  Seriously.

I hate to be the debbie downer here, but all I can think of with this furnance abstinence nonsense is frozen pipes. Not cool.

The dog I'm sure is loving the attention.
