How does your dog act in cold/snowy weather?

Mine is even more lazy that normal haha. What is your dog's behavior in the winter time?

She can't wait to get out in it and play. She will play in it for hours if I let her.

Our dogs love the snow. They can't wait to get outside and play in it.
Cold doesn't seem to bother them too much, but we keep a close eye on them when it's this cold. We're about 25 miles SW of Minneapolis and when I got up at 5:30 this morning, it was -28.
They didn't seem to mind.

Haha mine loves the snow too. But with her (and for me haha) it just wipes her out. My dog is never cold, she usually is so warm she can't lay in one place for too long, so in the winter, she'll sit there sleeping in the snow all day haha.

The colder and the wetter, the better they like it.

Sinister loves the snow. He loves catching snowballs and he likes to dig in it.

My dogs goes absolutely nuts when it's cold and snowy. I have to trick them into the house so they can warm up and take a break.

Brewski loves the snow he actually drives me insane with his come and play in it "mommy"!

He comes in barks runs back out stares at the door and barks all day long till I go out. Problem is a couple of hours of me being out there is not good enough, he wants me out all day!

Haha wow, I guess it's the thick fur that keeps them nice and warm. All GSD (here and other places I've asked) seem to LOVE the winter.
