couple of years ago my GSP started digging and barking in his kennel/dog house. He only does this when the weather is cold (25 degrees or lower) I have no problem during the Spring/Summer/Fall seasons, just during the winter. I have a dog heater for his house but it does not help.
late year I did not have a heater and he was doing it, so I bought the heater this year. He did cold and wet a couple of years ago during a hunt in heavy,wet snow. another forum thought that hypothermai may have set in. Kinda like frost bite, you ever get your fingers or ears frostbitten, they are never the same when it gets really cold.
leave it to a women to come up with an idiot response...shouldn't you be cooking your family some food or something?
