Pets and cold

It is getting cold - - - how are your pets?
My dogs that are out have a double housing unit - - - My grandkids call them "Igloos" where last year when it was 0 F it was +40 F in the "living room" and +60 F in the "bedrooms". This is with 2 dogs relegated to each Igloo. If you cannot provide something like this please take your dogs inside a warm environment. Ice in a bowl does not cut it! If you need TSC has heated water bowls at a reasonable price!

Many of you can probably find a local farmer with a split water transport tank to start with.

These are quite roomy for 2 dogs.

Don't forget the bedding.

My boys get put in the heated tack room in the barn at night. When I let them out of their kennels at night them beat me to the tack room door and scoot right in the boxes.We get quite a bit colder than you I'm guessing but not as damp.
