Most nights this week the tempurature has hit minus 15 in the night. My BIL's lab is an outdoor dog has a shed and a run. I know she hasnt even got a bed because she eats them. Im just sat wondering if she is cold. Wouldnt hurt him to let her in the wash room in this weather.

Any suggestions on what I should do, chucking him naked in the cold has crossed my mind...see how he likes it. Or should I just butt out?

At the least call him and ask him please to bring her in and out of this extreme cold. In the washroom if need be. How harsh do you want to be with him? Tell him you'll turn him in to the authorities if anything happens to that dog.

Well his mouth speaks over everyone so will be tough to get a word in edgeways but I will definately say I think she needs to be brought in. Ill make a sneaky phonecall if he doesnt.

If he doesn't bring the poor dog in, I would make an phone call to the proper authorities. He doesn't have to know it was you.

No way. You should do everything you can to SAVE that dog. I think only Alaskan sled dogs can endure that kind of cold and certainly not a Lab.
Does you sister have anything to say? She should put him out.
This morning as I was getting ready for work Duke was lounging on the king size bed after having his warm breakfast. It's only in the 30's here but I was telling him about all of the poor pups who didn't have a nice breakfast and a warm bed to lounge on. Now I am thinking about that poor dog. horrible.

No animal should stay out in those conditions. Call him and demand she be inside, he sounds bullheaded to me.

Sadie is a gundog too and there is NO way she would ever stay outside.
