Quotes about winter? Summer gets much of the love. Case in point: “Shall I compare thee to a WINTER’S day? Though art lovely and more temperate!” Said not Shakespeare nor any human ever!
But Happy-Go-Doodle Chloe has an appreciation for the white wintry stuff. Frankly, it befuddles me. I love the warmer seasons. (And if you do too, please check out these quotes about dogs and fall and dogs and sunny days.)

I hope you’ll cuddle up with your dog and enjoy a little respite from the winter weather as you read this collection of classic literary quotes about winter paired with pics of a doodle dog’s love for snowy, wintry days.
