Oo Orillia is not far at all! My inlaws lived in Barrie and it was soooo cold compared to here, I always blamed it on the lack of buildings to break the wind
Sidenote, would love to meet up if you ever find yourself at woofstock or a dog show. I'm still miffed they cancelled winter woofstock lol

|ShenzisMom||I don't think my end of Ontario ever gets to be -28c. I think they would bring the dogs in if it were that cold. If your bare skin is cold, then they are too. (Lack of fur on ears)|

Gets very cold here too, so on those days where it is over the top cold my dog isn't out for long periods. Mostly because I don't want to be outside.
Police dogs here are kenneled outside all year round and have no issues with their ears freezing.

Wolves and huskies have substantially more furred ears than a german shepherd. As you can see from my avatar, there are places in his ears where there is bare skin that would not do well with -39C windchill.
Also, since it's only early december, his winter coat isn't as thick as it could be yet, although his coat never gets even close to the thickness of a husky or a wolf to begin with.
