I have never seen Hans react to the cold like he's the least bit uncomfortable, no matter how cold or how long we stay out. I don't think he needs a jacket, but if I put him in his kennel, I will put a pad down for him so he doesn't have to be directly on the ground. However, I've seen him plop down in the snow and just lay there like it's no big deal. Makes me shiver to think about it!

Our Cowdog, OTOH, has a really short, slick coat and appears to be freezing nearly to death at 50 degrees. I do have a jacket for her. Poor girl. She has a heated pad in her kennel, a heated pad in her box on the porch and spends every night in our basement.

Nobody spoiled around here.
