Apparently Dobermans are weenies when it comes to cold weather. Well, Cruella anyway. When the temperature drops to the 20's and below, she shivers. Inside the house and outside. All the time.
She listens for the click of the heater (when she is upstairs) and when she hears it, she stands directly in front of it. Her collar gets so warm I am scared her neck will burst into flames yet she still hovers directly over it.
Tonight I couldn't take it anymore. Most of her heat loss seems to be from her feet so, voila, presto fixo!
She still loves the heater but at least she is not shivering now!
