Share the Buffalove with your dog by outfitting them in a standing Buffalo collar, leash or harness — which you can order online and ship across the country (for those pet-owning expats). Or grab a Foggy Mountain plaid fleece-lined dog coat, so those lake-effect storms never get in the way of good walk.
