cold weather?

Hey all! Haven't posted in forever, but I'm now engaged! Getting married June 27th!

My (dumb) question is: Will a golden who has been "furminated" be OK outside in 40 degree weather? I'm taking him up to Chattanooga this weekend and staying with a friend. She keeps her husky outside during the day. Holden's not used to being outside for long periods of time in the colder weather. I know that normally he'd be fine (are you kidding? he wouldn't think twice before jumping in the lake in 40 degree weather!), but since the furminator takes out most of the undercoat I wasn't sure.

I'd say so. I groom the heck out of Tucker and it's almost zero up here and he stays outside on the deck a lot and just naps. I'm sure he'll be fun.

Congrats!

I am sure he is going to be fine going up to Chattanooga and mine love the colder weather.
