    DefaultIt has been soooooooooo cold

    that the dogs don't even want to stay outside very long probably in the single digits by the time I get home from work and lows have been in the negative numbers...they canceled all of our classes since last saturday and this saturday is still pending tho it suppose to warm up to freezing..*G*..and then we get a 20-40% chance of snow so who knows if we'll have class...The doggies and I are going stir crazy..tho they've been better than I thought they would be..even Flyer has just been curling up on my lap or the heat vent.. after one good chase and wrestle seesion usually with Cedar....LOL.. it wouldn't be so bad but the days have been blue sky and sunny and it looks wonderful outside you just can't stand to be out in it very long.

    It was very cold here for a few days. The dogs loved playing in the snow but this morning 2 of them were holding up their paws....freezing feet.

    Mostly Labradors dont get it cold with those tempratures. But, the can get it cold if they dont stay on the move

    Other dogs with mostly a single coat, often getting it verry cold, and can get sick of it

    Hershey has never hesitated with the cold before this year. Never indicated issues with her paws, and we have been out at the DP when it was -20 F.

    For whatever reason this recent cold snap came on quick, with the snow. single digits to a few degrees below 0 F. She was lifting paws and licking, sitting and not moving. Today, it got up to 20 F and she was out there running around having a great time. Maybe it was just the sudden drop without any conditioning. Maybe there is a limit to what she can take around +10 F. I wil be watching her closely now, and ordering a set of those booties for $10 just in case.

    It has been really cold here also, its gotten down to almost freezing at night and barely in the mid 60's during the day. We are having a series of rain storms coming thru this weekend which is really a bummer for the AKC Invitational. Agility is going to be outside in a tent, obedience is inside at least as is conformation. And most importantly Meet the Breeds is inside so I will be out of the rain this weekend (I am working the Lab Booth) Potty breaks for Amber might be a bit wet though.

    Light, "weedy" individuals are definitely incorrect; equally objectionable are cloddy lumbering specimens. Labrador Retrievers shall be shown in working condition well-muscled and without excess fat. Females should weigh between 55 and 70lbs and Males between 65 and 80lbs. Height females 21.5 to 23.5 inches males 22.5 to 24.5 inches at the withers.

    It has been colder here too but it has been the wind that kept us in. Kept me and my dog in for a few days. Not because of him, because of me. I hate the wind.

    I take him out running every morning 3-5 miles 4 -5 times per week. Didn't go this week and he was getting antsy. Yesterday, we finally went. We meet a friend and her chocolate lab. We got there first and Miles was crying while we were waiting. He was so anxious to go! As for the cold bothering him, I've not noticed that until the mercury drops beow 0. I do put mushers wax on his feet when it drops into single digits or if we have to run on the road where there is salt and cinders.
