How do your pups keep warm during the cold winter months? Dosia has a little red sweater he wears outside if it's really cold. The last week it's been freezing over at night so we had to get his sweater out of the closet :) When he's inside he usually lays by the fireplace but at bed time he likes to be tucked in :) He has his little blanket that he loves. If we don't tuck him in he will shove his planket off his bed onto the floor and make little crybaby noises under his breath it's the cutest thing ever lol.

Here he is all tucked in for the night

LMAO he has you wrapped around that lil paw of his for sure. Crush just crawls in bed along with either calior luna depending if the boyfriend put them up for the night or not. Mine are all indoor dogs so they stay warm . We do have a couple sweaters if they need them , Zeke was wearing one of my older boys sweaters when he 1st got her since he was so skinny.

My dogs want to come live with you! lol He look so comfy ;)
I put straw in the dog houses and fatten them up for the cold outside. If it is in the teens during the day I just put them out to go potty then they stay inside all day. They just spent the last few days in the house because it was only 8 degrees!! I also have a heater in the dog room and my dogs come in during the night.

I use to do sweaters when I was at working events but it keeps them warm but when you take it off to work them them it is a shock to the muscles because they are not acclimated. So no sweaters at working events now because of that.

How ever General McNasty has lots of clothes to wear to keep him warm ;)

That's a good tip Lisa I never thought of how a sweater would affect the dogs work ability. OMG the General is super awesome, I'd love to see him modeling his outfits ;)

They deal with it.. Neither one are affected by the cold so don't do anything different aside running the heat inside the house. If rotated outside/inside haven't had an issue, if its really cold will set up a spot outside to keep warm but rarely used even when i feel they could use it.

Guess i'm just a lousy dad.. lol Don't get cakes, don't get treats, don't get anything except what they need and lots of attention from Ashley and I. The most they get spoiled is occasionally allowing to sleep in the bed with us.

My mom just knitted Gargamel a wool sweater, I didnt use anything last year but he was shaved from the tumor removal and his hair has not grown back yet, I told my mom I was worried about the cold on our walks and she sent me his sweater. I need to get a pic. Its super cute! In the summer he sleeps at my feet so I can tell when it gets colder the closer he gets to try and share my pillow. I have my heat down to 56 at night and I always wake up half way through when Mel trying to get under my covers, lol. That's not allowed!

Each pup gets about half a cup of whisky in their water bowl at night;)
BTW, does anyone know why my pups keep walking into the walls?

If it isn't warm soft and cuddly Bella will bug the crap out of me to come lay on my lap
LOL! She is my 48 lb lap dog LOL! She is a rough rugged girl outdoors but is a total DIVA inside when it comes to being comfy. Girl don't know what its like to lay on a bare floor. She has big warm fleece blankets and a orthopedic bed from BJ's. I also had to buy her a coat for the cold New England weather. I never had a dog that had to wear a coat but I guess I can suck it up since she's a girl LOL!

Ecko has a hoodie and I bought him a fleece jacket for Christmas, shhh don't tell him.
He also has a bed in every room and a blanket or 3 in the bedroom. We live in FL so it isn't nearly as bad as up north, and not even as bad as it was last year. He's only needed a jacket once so far this year. The chihuahua has a cat cave bed and a comforter over the top of that. If either of them get too cold they come to my side of the bed and tell me and I pull them up and stuff them under the blankets. Dawn doesn't like it but I'm too lazy to get up and put blankets on them again. LOL!

Dosia is crazy cute all snuggled up. Ecko prefers to be under blankets too. :)

LOL! Thanks :) That was taken right after those blankets came out of the dryer so they were really warm! I heard that coats on these dogs are a must because of lack of fur and length of coat (Duh) LOL! I'm just used to having GSD's that don't need anything ;) Massachusetts gets pretty cold somedays so this little princess will be fleecing it :D
