Default Shivering

It has been cold here the past week mainly staying in the minus figures sometimes reaching highs of 0degrees!!

We have stopped going out for walks as its not enjoyable for either of us when its this cold but we still go places in the car. I always put her jumper on her to go out in this weather but maizy has been shivering like mad when we go out in the car.... it takes a bit to warm the car up but i was just wondering do any of yours do this?? She is good in the car and is used to it some im certain its the weather but not sure what else i can do????

I really have not seen this with Chrissy or Snuggles when they go outdoors. However, Chrissy wears a nice warm coat or sweater so the cold does not seem to bother her at all. I am not quite sure what your refer to as a "jumper"??

This morning I took Ollie to the groomer and when we got in the car he was shivering a little. Turned on the seat warmer and snuggled him up in a big towel. I think he enjoyed it!!

I put a coat over their harness and sweaters..... And then I bring a blanket out and wrap them in that until things warm up.

Stay warm Miss Maizy!

Lacey has to wear a sweater now even in our house! We have the heat set at 71 degrees but she just shivers if she isn't wearing something! She is only 3 1/2# so she gets cold easily!

She has just been out in the garden for a wee and was absolutly fine and went for a little roam around too!!

It seems to be just in the car think its because its always cold when you first get in the car as she settles after 10 minutes!! I always have a blanket in her bed in the car for her to snuggle up to but will have to try putting her coat over her jumper!! Im always cold so i feel her pain!!!
