When I wake up every morning, the first thing I do is to say goodmorning to Wade and then I feed him and walk him.
When saying goodmorning I'll naturally pet Wade and it feels like his body and ears are cold. I'm in the nyc area and we generally do not turn on the heat unless absolutely necessary but my wife and I are usually cold in the house unless under some warm blankets or wearing a fleece of some sort.
If we are cold, is the dog cold?
Additionally, when I wake up and jump from under the covers I feel that the house is freezing. If I feel like this in the mornings then has my dog also been cold all night?
For some reason I assumed that dogs can handle cold better than we humans but upon touching Wade the last few mornings, I'm starting to question that.
Wade's around 52 - 55 lbs and his fur is pretty short (like a lab's). The house thermostat is telling me its 63 degrees in here right now but I think it's actually colder.
So what do you guys think? Is my dog cold at night?
ok, I'm off to walk the dog now!
