|Kato doesn't have what I'd call a thick coat, but he went swimming the other day. It was like 20-something degrees out, and there was snow on the ground.
He went in on his own. The water was super cold. He did not mind it one bit. In fact, he took multiple dips in the creek.
Granted, he was moving around and not laying still, but still, I couldn't believe it.
Sanka on the other hand, when he accidentally stepped on the ice and broke through and got his paws wet, he looked like he stepped on hot coals. That water was too cold for even his paws.
I am really always amazed at how warm dogs really can be. I get cold easily, so I always think they're cold too lol. But they really aren't. They are much more comfortable in it than we are. And snow tends to make it warmer, not colder. And usually when it is snowing, it's warmer out too.
