So, it is coming into our first winter with a dog. She is only fairly little and I am worried about her being too cold at night. I actually think she is already getting cold as she starts to whine at about 5am and its about 12 degrees. She comes inside on and off but sleeps outside. She cant be an inside dog full time (DH wont allow it, mainly because we have a new baby!) So I have a question - how do you keep your pets warm if they sleep outside or do you let them in overnight? We don't have a doggy door so I would need to let her sleep in the laundry and let her in and out to wee.... It gets close to zero in the dead of winter.... Help?! What is the best option besides a coat?
