AKIRA3 Sleet, and ice here.
We can't tell whether or not she likes the cold.
She fractured her paw last wed. And is hopping around on 3 legs now, and for the next 6 weeks.
She doesn't like going outside now because of the plastic boot
She has to wear to keep out the moisture.

spidermilk Mine loves cold weather and is crazy about snow as well. A few weeks ago it was chilly and misting and when we ran past our house he tried to drag me inside so I took him home and finished my run alone.

I don't do coats or shoes and we will spend hours hiking in the winter or playing in the snow. When we are playing in snow I will occasionally (after an hour of snow hiking/play) check his feet to make sure snow isn't getting packed in there. I have dog boots that I got thinking I could use to protect his feet from the salt on sidewalks or give him traction when we get a few inches of ice. I have used them for the ice but usually for the salt I just wash/wipe his feet off when we get home.

BahCan My dog loves the snow, we had a blizzard earlier this week so there are some huge snow drifts.

However, the current temperature is Minus -25 C with a wind chill in the Minus -40's so she only wants to go out and right back

gsdlover91 Ha....I *wish* my dog pulled to come in! Its a brisk 14 degrees right now, and he gets all hyper and could stay out there forever (me on the other hand, I don't last 5 minutes.) No jacket, no boots!

Last years fun, outside of a couple light snow days, we are frigid cold and pretty much snowless.

argonne Here is a pic of the field next to our house last year where we walk the boyz. That drift is about 4 1/2 feet deep. Seems every dog turns into a schutzhund when you have a heavy coat on and there's a snowdrift to knock you into.

I have several people in Canada who I would love to visit!
I have fond memories of renting a cottage near where you are. We spent a week at White Lake and had a blast catching pike!
