No heat


Last night we were lucky(?) to get 8.5" of snow. But before that we had rain.
during the night we Lost Electricty.

My question: How cold in the house does it have to be - before its COLD for the dog sleeping on the floor etc.

You won't be able to tolerate it long before it will bother the dog.

Lucky likes to roll up in a ball and take a nap outside in the snow. So I don't worry about him getting to cold. I do worry about him getting too warm.

Bogey has spent all winter sleeping in the window sill at the coldest part of our house. I think he likes it. I hate that room - it's drafty and way too cold. But he seems to love it. I wouldn't worry about your pups. When/if they get cold they'll come snuggle with you.

My two love to lie like a draft stopper against my 100 year old front door. They also go swimming in January and come out and roll in the snow.
