Hello and welcome to you and gorgeous Gauge. We lost our last golden. Sophie on Oct. 12. She would have turned 13 on the 8th of this month. HOWEVER we do have a Great Pyrenees, Sir Moose and he LOVES< LOVES the cold. Now we do not get much cold down here on the Texas coast (we live just out of Corpus Christi), but last week we had a cold snap like we had not had in years. It got down to to 22 two nights in a row. It destroyed my hibiscus plants--which were `12 feet tall, my poinsettia which was over 6 feet tall and 6 feet wide, plus my ferns, etc. We4 do not think all are dead, but will have to be cut back.
But the thing is Moose LOVES the cold. My husband walks him every morning and Sir Moose could not understand why he was not getting his morning walks. Hubby did take him when it warmed up to upper or mid 30's. But he is almost 73 and I am almost 72 and neither of us need to be sick again. So Sir Moose had to be satisfied for the most part just laying out on the patio.
