How cold is too cold?

I am just curious as to how many of you pitbull enthusiasts out there keep your dogs outside in the winter months, and those who do, how cold is too cold? Ive always kept my dogs inside at night, however sometimes I let my pup sleep in my car at night when on trips where I cannot bring my dog inside at night. This weekend I am planning a trip up to boston, and I expect it to be below freezing at night, what do you guys think? probably fine with a few blankets? ....I dont want to wake up with a frozen bulldog!

I'm a bit concerned about the lack of air inside a car.

my only dog now is almost eight months, he seems to be doing fine for the most part... but this is the coldest he has ever seen it get and he expresses some serious distaste! In the mornings he steps out, his eyes get big, he arches his back, and walks like a ballerina. Its actually pretty hilarious, but if yours can stand 10 some degree's I imagine he should be fine with mid-low thirties in a car with blankets...
anyone disagree? Do you think the humane society would disagree? Anyone ever had a frozen dog? (I hope not!)

good point about air ericschevy, being cold I would probably want to keep them rolled up, but with them cracked it couldn't be much different temperature-wise than a dog house with a door....

yea eric gave a good point on the air, but i've seen a guy keep his dog in his car b/c it was to cold down here (which it was in it's 20's i know it's nothing to you northern peeps, but to the south that's super cold!!) and well, over the next few nites he had less and less of the inside of his car ..i guess the dog got bored. so that might be sumfin to think about too.
now kolby is an inside dog, it's just starting to get in the 60's here during the moring and nites, so it's great weather, kolby loves the cool air, makes him really frisky (which is always funny to watch) but he's so spoiled i dont think he would make it a nite in any weather outside! *laughs*

I have more than one dog per cage so they warm each other in the dog house.
When it gets down to freezing I bring them in at night but its more of a comfort thing.
I feel bad if my dogs are out in freezing weather. A good sized dog house (not too big) with plenty of straw or hay and a heated water bowl are enough to keep a good rustic dog happy. 8 months is a bit young but I don't think it wil kill him with straw and something in front of the door way to break the wind from coming in to the dog house.

I will typically bring them in if Its going to get below 15. Some winters here don't get below 30 and some get into the minus degrees just depends.
