How do I know if my hav is cold or not.

With the freezing below zero temps, I always worry that my dog might be cold inside the house or at night when we sleep. He always curls up like a cat on his pillow when he sleeps. I have blankets everywhere but he has never buried himself under anything. Does this mean he's just fine?

I feel my guys noses and paws. If they feel ice cold I put a sweater orhousecoat on them. If they're not panting I assume they are ok. My house is 62 degrees when I'm not home...

You know they're cold when:

1. Their pee freezes before it hits the ground
2. "Smoke" rises from their poop
3. Their tongue sticks to the lamp post
4. When they jump on a sled and expect you to pull them.

If he's not shivering, he's fine. Unless he's clipped VERY short, (like shaved) and I've never seen a picture of you guy where he looked that short, he should be FINE at household temperatures.
