I'd freeze at your house. I keep my house at 76 all year and right now I'm a bit cold, getting ready to put my pjs on and warm bathrobe. My dogs all seem comfortable. I agree, if a dog is cold, it'll shiver.

You mean I wasted hundreds of dollars on sweaters because their noses were my gauge?! LOL

Haha, Linda! That makes me think of my mom insisting that I wore a sweater when I was young, even though I didn't want to. You know, "A sweater is what you wear when your mother is cold."

But.... if a dog is in a crate at night and shivering - I can't see it. Will they whimper or cry?

When you talk about your dog curling up when they are cold, is this what you mean?

yep, generally it 's an indicator but not always. Sled dogs curl up into a "C" in a snowbank. If they're stetched out they're usually not cold.

Tyler lays curled up in his bed in the winter, all snuggled up, and stretched out on his tummy on the wood floors in the summer. I've never seen him shiver though and in the summer we refer to his position as "cooling his jets".

Django is either always curled up or stretched out but i have never seen him shake. I sometimes throw the blanket on him and he manages to get out from under it. I always thought his C was the cat in him.

Aw, c'mon. You know you'd keep buying those gorgeous garbs for your little fashion plates. I was thinking about you the past few days and thinking I should get in touch with the custom sweater/coat lady. Looks like a cold winter coming.

My second dog Cosmo, all white, LOVED to sun bath. every day at about 11am (roommate told me), he'd walk out to the deck and lay out in the sun. He taught my other female anatolian, Kara how to sun bath. She still does it to this day.

I wouldn't take a nose temp as a sole indicator of anything.
