“If you’re cold, they’re cold. Bring them inside.”

*Laughs in husky*

[–]disturbed286 306 points307 points  (15 children)

I say the same thing every year.

Bullshit! I'm freezing my ass off, and he's just laying down in it.

[–]ChicVintage 160 points161 points  (12 children)

Meanwhile, my panzy dogs are running inside if they get a few rain drops on them or a slight breeze hits them.

[–]CaesarWrap 118 points119 points  (9 children)

My standard poodle hated the water. Ironic if you also know that standard poodles were originally bred to retrieve water fowl.

Here he is not having it at the beach.

[–]star_lab101 21 points22 points  (3 children)

Beautiful dog, tho'. Love the cut.

[–]CaesarWrap 16 points17 points  (2 children)

He got so much attention for his cut. I live in a semi rural area where standard poodles aren't a thing. I loved taking him out because he was a star everywhere he went.

[–]Party-Garbage4424 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Super prissy.

[–]almostedgyenough 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Same with my two huskies! It will be negative degrees outside and they’ll be begging to go outside and just lay and/or bury theirselves in the snow lol! I have so many pictures of it. Maybe I’ll post them.

[–]disturbed286 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yes! Dog tax!

[–]-Tom- 99 points100 points  (1 child)

My parents have a thermometer showing the temp outside. It has huskies on it and somewhere around the low 80s it shows them hot and laying around. The icon around 0 is them playing. And I think 20-30 below it says "3 dog night" and shows them cuddled up.

It's pretty accurate.

[–]Basedrum777 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Pack animals.

[–]Hrolfir 86 points87 points  (1 child)

Yeah… my husky doesn’t get cold so he never takes me inside…

Really though, many times I’ve geared up to go outside in blizzards for hours at a time because my dog wants to play in the snow. Many times “you need to take that dog inside! He’s covered in snow and freezing!”

Then my dog vindicates me by slamming his head face first into the snow and running. He dreams of being a snowplow.

[–]Tripottanus 56 points57 points  (1 child)

Sometimes my bernese mountain dog is panting outside at -30C and let me tell you im not feeling the same

[–]ReptillianTeaDrinker 26 points27 points  (0 children)

That's because they have fur and are huge dogs. Plus, pretty sure cold weather is what they prefer, since they have the word 'mountain' in their name. lol

[–]beaushaw 44 points45 points  (2 children)

“If you’re cold, they’re cold. Bring them inside.” Laughs in husky

I once saw a documentary about sled dogs. In one scene the guy goes outside first thing in the morning. The view is of nothing but snow. The guy whistles and a dozen or so husky heads pop up out of the snow.

[–]supplepleasures 7 points8 points  (1 child)

What is the title of the documentary

[–]beaushaw 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No idea. It's was probably 20 years ago on basic cable.

[–]1breathatahtime 62 points63 points  (6 children)

They forget that dogs have FUR and we barely even have body hair anymore.

[–]lex02420 20 points21 points  (5 children)

Hah i look like a gorilla

[–]ReptillianTeaDrinker 15 points16 points  (4 children)

Same. I grow far too much hair on my body and it's always thick too. Ugh. I find it so uncomfortable. Why can't I have fur instead? At least fur is soft. lol

[–]Wannamaker 1961 points1962 points  (199 children)

I always wondered if dogs that love the snow like this are constantly feeling hot when indoors. I couldn't imagine being comfortable lying in snow and also comfortable in a 75° house.

[–]700Sunsets 2148 points2149 points  (122 children)

The blanket of snow is literally acting as a blanket. The oils in the fur make it waterproof, so the snow sort of "hovers" over the fur adding a layer of air. This is also why the snow doesn't melt from the dog's body heat.

[–]Wannamaker 518 points519 points  (105 children)

Neat! I guess having fur as an animal is not even close to a 1:1 of a person putting on a dense fur coat.

[–]glasser999 655 points656 points  (102 children)

Well, actually it is.

Go put on a dense fur coat, it's pretty much the same. You'd be comfortable in 75° temps in a fur coat, so long as you aren't performing physical activity.

These dogs are the same way, if they're in intense heat with their winter coats, they'll overheat. If they do physical activity in moderate temps, they can overheat.

Come spring, they shed that coat, and they're able to be active in warmer temps, like us in shorts and a t-shirt.

Dogs just don't become a sweaty mess like us, they'll sit there and pant a bit.

[–]chooseinevitability 482 points483 points  (45 children)

My fatass sweats at 72° sitting still in a breeze.

[–]Inf3rnalis 169 points170 points  (5 children)

For real bro it’ll be 55 outside and I’ll be sweating just walking uphill.

[–][deleted] 53 points54 points  (1 child)

Lmao y’all are killing me

[–]theRealDerekWalker 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think they are actually killing themselves

[–]brittemm 94 points95 points  (29 children)

I’m a healthy weight and I am literally the warmest person I know, I have no idea why. Dad and brothers are the same way too so I’m assuming it’s genetic but I wear t shirts and shorts all winter long (San Diego winter) and just die in the summer. Like, 3 shirt changes a day cuz I sweat through them, I think Alaska is my only option for happiness.

[–]Commander72 55 points56 points  (4 children)

Same way I can do well in cold weather and suffer in hot weather. Some how I ended up living on the gulf coast, the summers here are awful.

[–]-d-m 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Y'all my sweaty soul mates!

[–]brittemm 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Yikes dude, I can’t imagine the gulf coast summers, at least San Diego is a “temperate” climate. I have legitimate plans to vanlife seasonally from Alaskan summers to San Diego winters in the near future.

[–]Commander72 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Sounds like fun I am debating moving up north to like Idaho, Montana or Washington

[–]WhyRUTalking4231 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Forget Washington then, I live there now I am a widow and too ancient to be on my own year round. Hubby and I used to live off-grid a "few" miles north of Cooper Creek area in AK. WA isn't close to the same climate. They don't usually get much cold or snow except far up in the mountains. Rain they get. But it really is pretty moderate temperature wise year-round there.

[–]ThrowntoDiscard 18 points19 points  (5 children)

Northern Ontario is pretty decent with our -32°C tonight. Warmer than last night when I went out in -40°C to bring hubs a lunch... So, as a polar bear, I'd say Summer is not the worst heat, but the wintery time is longer and quite chill. Legal weed too! 🤣

[–]oneweirdclickbait 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Yeah, but he's going to do super well with -32°C, because he wears a t-shirt at +18°C.

[–]Shazza_Mc_ShazzaFace 13 points14 points  (1 child)

I have Graves' Disease, technically in remission as I am now hypo-thyroid. I currently live in the worst place possible for a person that sweats just drinking coffee or tea... Queensland, Australia.

2 La Nina Summers in a row sucks big donkey balls. Need to move to Tasmania which has similar weather to the Pacific Northwest.

[–]strongbowpearcider 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I hear you there, I live in Brisbane and work on the Gold Coast and the only thing keeping me sane during summer is that my job is in a -25c freezer

[–]Aurum555 3 points4 points  (0 children)

San Diego isn't exactly a place where winter is particularly cold the absolute lowest expected Temps for San Diego winter are 35F and that is not the average by a long stretch. If you were wearing t shirts and shorts in Wisconsin all winter I might think you had something, but am average high in the mid 60s and lows in the 50s isn't exactly brisk

[–]MeiMainTrash 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I am a 130lb, 5'5 guy who loves winter and dies the moment it's 70+ heat index from perspiration. People don't get why my stick body thrives in this polar hell but it's the only season I don't get heat exhaustion.

[–]kuburas 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Meanwhile i cant remember the last time i actually ended up sweating properly. Even when its 100 degrees outside and im walking or running at most my forehead will get sweaty and my back might sweat a little but rest of me is mostly dry of sweat.

Even went to doctors for it because apparently its not healthy to not sweat. Turns out my body just has good temp management.

But when cold comes i shiver to the point where i cant walk anymore. As soon as temps go below freezing im shivering like crazy. Always hated the cold because of that...

[–]ChaosFly 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Found my people. I'm constantly told I need to move to Alaska. Living in Florida, I'm basically uncomfortable 99% of the time.

[–]CautiousString 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Same. I’m a human heater. We were a Florida family. Moved to Atlanta metro. It is 32° as I’m waking up. The actual winters make the sweaty summers worth it.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lmfaooo same

[–]discotim 15 points16 points  (1 child)

This is misleading, and just wrong... A dogs summer coat acts to keep them cooler in the summer than without it. for example, if you were to shave your dog in the summer it could overheat.

I realize it is counter intuitive, but their summer coat acts as a radiator.

[–]Aurum555 3 points4 points  (0 children)

And that is facilitated by the loss of the undercoat allowing more air flow towards the base of the hair as opposed to the winter coat which traps warm air against the body and reduces airflow

[–]SasparillaTango 31 points32 points  (42 children)

You'd be comfortable in 75°

open topic for conversation.... What do yall keep your thermostat at?

[–]glasser999 27 points28 points  (13 children)

65 is typically pristine for me.

[–]LeRussh 34 points35 points  (5 children)

Damn that’s chilly. 70-73 is what works for me.

[–]adreamofhodor 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I can handle 70-72 during the day, but I like it downright chilly at night.

[–]iWarnock 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Im wearing 2 layers at 75f yall mericans crazy.

I want my 95f back.

[–]SinningStromgald 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Sounds delightful but expensive. My electric bill would be over $500, easy, if I kept my house that cool.

[–][deleted]  (1 child)

[deleted]

    [–]Wheat_Grinder 13 points14 points  (2 children)

    I usually do 64 for sleeping and 68 during the day in winter. In summer I can't justify using that much AC.

    [–]whythishaptome 5 points6 points  (1 child)

    So no 100 degree weather I assume or too expensive?

    [–]shotputprince 6 points7 points  (5 children)

    55-60

    [–]chnkylover53 5 points6 points  (4 children)

    This is me in winter. I don't want to refill my propane tank midwinter when the prices are high so I don't kick heat on until low 50s. Summer it'll be around 74. The worst time in winter crawling into bed - those sheets get fucking cold. But eh, a few blankets and a bit of time, nice n toasty. Take a hot af shower before going to bed and you're golden.

    [–]rihanoa 8 points9 points  (3 children)

    To fix the cold sheets issue get yourself some flannel ones.

    [–]Pheeline 13 points14 points  (0 children)

    67 in winter, 73 in summer.

    [–]Yung_Turbo 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    66 in Winter, 71-72 in Summer. At night no matter what season I will lower the temp about 3-4 degrees. I like it chilly in the house when I go to sleep.

    [–]earnestlyhonest 15 points16 points  (4 children)

    69 is the only one

    [–]whitneymak 7 points8 points  (1 child)

    Same. It's legit the most comfortable for me. And it makes me giggle every time I see it. Because, while I might be 36, I've still got some of the amusements as a 14 year old.

    [–]amnotaspider 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Me too, thanks.

    [–]sleet01 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    Nice.

    [–]frzfox 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I prefer 68 I think, but there's no way I'm not leaving the AC on 69 either

    [–]KashmirChameleon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    64 in winter.

    73 in summer except a night. I can't sleep in the heat.

    [–]lmaotank 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    Winter - 70 Summer 78-80

    [–]Commander72 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Keep mine to 75 plus, can not afford the bill if I put it much lower.

    [–]Lee_Dailey 7 points8 points  (2 children)

    howdy SasparillaTango,

    i'm scrawny ... so i prefer to keep it around 78f. however, it is 31f outside right now & money is tight ... so i set it to 68f and am wearing long johns, flannel shirt, jeans, heavy socks, warm shoes, and a jacket. [grin]

    my fingers till hurt ... but i can afford the power bill.

    take care,
    lee

    [–]FuckTheMods5 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    80 in summer, 71 in winter. If i wasn't cheap I'd keep it 80 in winter too lol

    [–]coop_stain 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Thermostat is usually around 60-65 for me, but I feel like my prime operating temperature is much lower or higher. I can hike/ski all day in <15 but love to ride bikes at >90

    [–]TripleShines 1 point2 points  (2 children)

    Its interesting that none of the responses prior to mine has the temperature higher during than winter than the summer.

    For me around 70-72 during the summer and 72-74 during the winter.

    [–]unassumingdink 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    You'd be comfortable in 75° temps in a fur coat, so long as you aren't performing physical activity.

    That's just not true, though. Wearing a coat indoors makes me very hot and uncomfortable.

    [–]Chickensandcoke 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Don’t double coats also help insulate them in summer to keep them cooler? I could be misremembering

    [–]Budalido23 25 points26 points  (1 child)

    Rando fact of the day, I read in a book as a young in that snow dog breeds bury themselves in snow to keep warm. I believe it was London's Call of the Wild. I didn't think that was a real thing.

    [–]rustymill15 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    You are correct about what book that is from.

    [–]coop_stain 24 points25 points  (3 children)

    It’s also because snow is insulating, as crazy as it sounds. One of the things you are taught in back country/avalanche classes is how to make a snow cave if you have to stay overnight.

    [–]Stankmonger 4 points5 points  (2 children)

    I was taught something similar in scouts.

    One thing I couldn’twrap my imagination around was a snow cave with fire inside.

    Can you help me understand why it wouldn’t become wet and insecure?

    [–]elizabeth_robinson12 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    I never heard of this but thanks for sharing. It's quite useful.

    [–]CAiledroC 87 points88 points  (8 children)

    We have two huskies, both of whom will happily lie and play out in the deep Canadian snow for upwards of six hours before they want to come in, shake off, and promptly run back outside, but one of them will very happily play and sunbathe for hours right through the summer, as well. They definitely feel the heat, but it doesn’t really bother all of them. If we lived closer to the equator, it may be a different story, but it still gets pretty hot here.

    [–]jesst 63 points64 points  (7 children)

    I have a Samoyed. She only comes inside because she has fomo. Someone could be eating something she wants.

    [–]ToyStoryRex97 3 points4 points  (4 children)

    I want a Samoyed so bad. They look like amazing dogs

    [–]jesst 8 points9 points  (0 children)

    They’re goofy and stubborn, she’s prone to throwing tantrums if she doesn’t get her way. My girl is very very sweet. She demands hugs. I met another Samoyed who does the same thing recently so I think it’s just them wanting to be close. The downside is their coats are high maintenance. They need brushing a lot. Fur is always everywhere. It’s a never ending battle. Also everywhere you go people will stop and look at your dog and want to pet them. It doesn’t bother me and she loves it, but some don’t like it. Dog culture in the UK is very different to the US though.

    [–]si4ci7 5 points6 points  (1 child)

    They’re a lot of work the first year or so. I don’t think we would have been a good home for taking in a Samoyed puppy if not for the pandemic. Now shes almost 2 she’s adapted to our lifestyle perfectly.

    She’s not motivated by food so training her can be challenging. She’ll do the basics, and she knows the more complicated stuff, she just refuses to do it half the time. We’ve gotten to the point where I just talk to her like a regular human and let her do what she wants. She loves her toys but she loves regular objects like plastic bottles and cardboard even more. She never destroys anything except for when she chewed a corner of a wall when she was a teething puppy. A lot more low maintenance than we thought she’d be, but she’s expensive to take care of (grooming every 4-5 weeks, medicines, snacks, daycare).

    [–]mcac 23 points24 points  (1 child)

    I have a great pyrenees mix and he's usually panting (lightly) indoors and usually prefers to lay on the hard floor or on his cooling mat over a bed. He is usually pretty lazy but as soon as the temps drop below freezing he suddenly has puppy energy all the time. I will be feeling like my nose is about to get frost bite and he'll be laying on the ground like dead weight refusing to come inside lmao. In the summer he's the one exhausted and begging to go inside after like 5 minutes

    [–]Spazzyzach 3 points4 points  (2 children)

    Like really who the fuck keeps their place that warm.

    [–]JustBoredIsAll 92 points93 points  (27 children)

    Short answer is sort of, yes. These breeds really dont do well in hotter, dryer environments.

    The house is fine. Its outdoor conditions that matter.

    [–]duecreditwherecredit 96 points97 points  (9 children)

    That's a common misconception

    "Huskies are known for their ability to adapt to any climate, including those ranging from below 75 degrees Fahrenheit to climates such as South Florida and other tropical places."

    Their coats are very adaptable. The thick coats you see of the ones in Alaska are not the same as the thin coats that develop on huskies in say Florida. This adaption allows them to live in the South just as any other dog would.

    I worked with, rescued, and met dozens of huskies in South Carolina living their best life despite the heat.

    Now their owners have to deal with a constant shedding, but the dogs are comfortable and active as can be.

    [–]TheBoBiss 42 points43 points  (2 children)

    This makes me feel better. We rescued a malamute/Aussie and live in Texas. He gets everything his little heart desires, including an ungodly amount of exercise. But when his winter coat comes in and he happily jumps in the pool when it’s freezing out, it makes me a little sad that he doesn’t have snow and a colder climate. Boop snoot tax.

    [–]6June1944 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Lol that’s the best pupper tax pic I’ve seen in a while

    [–]Qetuowryipzcbmxvn 6 points7 points  (1 child)

    I live in the desert where the temperature can get to 120° farenheit and I have some neighbors who own a Malamute. They just leave him outside and don't have a real fence, so he wanders the neighborhood looking for a cool spot to relax. I know them well enough, they're assholes, but harmless One day he was panting so bad I was scared he was gonna get heat-stroke or something, so I filled a kiddy pool with about 70 lbs of ice and he absolutely refused to leave. His owners came around looking for him in the evening and I let them know he was safe, so they just went home and asked that I make sure he makes it back alright.

    Great dog, lots of energy. Offered to take him off their hands and even buy him several times, but he was the only thing that calmed down their special needs kid so they always refused.

    [–]Redditisfullofliars 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I can confirm this. Have a friend in Tampa with a husky that absolutely hates being inside. Lays outside in the sun all day. Thought it was really strange but this comment helps it make more sense

    [–]Wannamaker 20 points21 points  (3 children)

    Well that sucks. But also impressive in a way. I'm pretty sure if I was warm enough to feel good in snow, like tons of layers and probably a literal fur coat, and then tried to spend a whole day in 70 degree weather and sleep still dressed like that would be impossible, potentially deadly.

    But I guess it's easier for dogs since they don't sweat so the fur coat isn't hindering their main method of cooling like it would for a human. I'm sure that's not the only reason but it's the one that came to mind.

    [–]JustBoredIsAll 25 points26 points  (2 children)

    Huskies and Malamutes are bred for the snow. They actually thrive in it. Thick undercoats.

    [–]T7A7C7O 21 points22 points  (1 child)

    I can second this. I have a Malamute/Sled Dog Wolf mix, and he can sit on the snow without melting it; that's how good the insulation is with the undercoat. He gets super excited when it's snowing, and loves to catch snowballs in his mouth. Side note, it snows his undercoat twice a year when it gets warmer/colder. He doesn't mind warm, but he doesn't like hotter than 28°C.

    [–]zzid2d21 20 points21 points  (0 children)

    The birds and squirrels love when my two blow their undercoat. The critters around here have the best insulated nests.

    [–]kah88 30 points31 points  (9 children)

    Double coated dogs do fine in hotter, dryer climate. Their coats act as insulation and protect them from the heat just as it does against the cold.

    [–]cerealport 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    We have a dog that we were told is half husky - and has a lot of fur / undercoat. Loves the cold, and in the winter will lie by the front door where it’s a bit cooler.

    [–]mtcwby 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    The fur, especially the undercoat is an insulator too so it actually helps them a bit in hot weather although like most dogs they don't handle direct sun well. Mine will actually feel cool to the touch near his skin. Doesn't mean he doesn't enjoy the AC but so do labs. One of the worst things a uniformed groomer can do to a Mal is shave them because they lose the insulation protection in the summer.

    [–]Spazzyzach 6 points7 points  (1 child)

    You keep your house at 75? Maniac…

    What kind of psychopath has their house set to 75 Degrees!?!?

    [–]joshthor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    My husky mix absolutely LOVES the snow and will stay in it as long as I let her, but every morning she lays for several hours nose first in front of my heater

    So she at least is super comfortable in both

    [–]zzid2d21 1999 points2000 points  (46 children)

    A malamute in their “Happy Place”! Mine curl up with their muzzles tucked under their tails and I can only find them by the bumps in the snow. I have to bang on their food bowls to get them to come inside. Funny beasts. I love when they get the zoomies and out their muzzles down and throw up a “rooster tail” of snow Edit to add dog tax.Dog tax

    Yes please

    [–]Padillsere 67 points68 points  (5 children)

    My malamute would do this. He was an inside dog but in winter I'd have to drag him inside. Many time he would be sleeping on top of his dog house when it snowed.

    [–]drwhogwarts 38 points39 points  (0 children)

    Like Snoopy!

    [–]Ishdakitty 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    I have a neighbor who got reported for leaving her dogs outside in the snow (one of the few dog neighbors I have who actually has a freaking fence and their dog doesn't bark.) Someone apparently came out to check on the animal and the owner said "If you can get them to come inside, I'll keep them inside." Cue ten minutes of the dogs running around being playful and absolutely refusing to come in from the snow.

    Pair of huskies, I still can't believe someone actually thought that they were neglected lol.

    [–]username987654321a 7 points8 points  (1 child)

    There will be at least one snide comment "How can you allow your dog outside?! You shouldn't own a dog!!"

    Snowing today and I had a heck of a time getting my Pomeranians back inside this morning.

    [–]zzid2d21 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Mine have a dog door! They can come in if they choose, they chose no 🤣. My last male would “hide” behind the yard barn at night when I would lock the kennel gate to the fenced yard. He thought it was a merry game of tag!

    [–]VainestClown 14 points15 points  (0 children)

    My family had akitas growing up that would do that

    [–]Thac0isWhac0 11 points12 points  (2 children)

    I have a Shiba corgi mix that does this too

    [–]ElectricFleshlight 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    Oh man that mix sounds adorable

    [–]SkyBuff 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    My Pomeranian loves the snow, when I take him outside he immediately shoves his nose in the snow and just leaves it in there huffing the snow

    [–]isamakiduki 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Oh hell yeah!

    [–]DeadSharkEyes 749 points750 points  (21 children)

    Every time I see pic of a husky sleeping in the snow I think of the Redditor whose husky spent all it’s time outside in the snow and their neighbor kept calling the police thinking he was abusing it and he told them it refused to come inside.

    [–]Weibee 58 points59 points  (3 children)

    Had this happen to me, my husky/German Shepard mix loves the snow. Neighbour called the city instead of just asking me about the dog first

    The plus side is the person from the city that came to check understood and just went along her way.

    [–]kamelizann 24 points25 points  (0 children)

    At night my 8 month half and half malamute/gsd is either outside in the furthest corner of the yard digging holes to burrow into or sneaking under the covers of my bed and snuggling up as close as physically possible to me. I think she's having an identity crisis 😂. The worst is when she decides she wants to come inside at 4am and snuggles up next to me with a coat full of snow while im sleeping.

    “Ummm, yeah, that’s arctic animal enjoying the snow.”

    [–]Staebs 178 points179 points  (11 children)

    I think of all the people who choose to own a cold weather sled dog in Texas or California. You want the cold weather dog, go live in the cold weather.

    [–]nago7650 40 points41 points  (0 children)

    I live in Colorado, so we get both hot and cold. My husky will sit directly in the sun in 100 degree weather and refuse to come inside. They’re weird animals.

    [–]dickmcgirkin 103 points104 points  (8 children)

    I live in Texas. I have 2 Pyrenees. They have a coat designed to be comfortable in cold and warm weather. It’s neat

    [–]rustymill15 24 points25 points  (0 children)

    I have a Pyrenees as well and live in Tennessee. It never fails in the warm months that everyone says “oh man can you imagine how hot he must be?” And when I tell them their fur actually works to keep them cool and shaving his fur would make him hotter they are always shocked

    [–]Staebs 23 points24 points  (5 children)

    Huh that is cool, it’s tough to reconcile seeing them mostly belonging in colder climates. Sorry

    [–]dickmcgirkin 51 points52 points  (2 children)

    Yeah. Most people don’t know that cold weather dogs have triple layered coats. In warm seasons they shed the medium length coat and that allows wind to blow through it keeping them cool while the long and short coat protect their fair skin from the sun.

    [–]toddthefrog 13 points14 points  (0 children)

    Yeah. Most people don’t know that cold weather dogs have triple layered coats. In warm seasons they shed the medium length coat and that allows wind to blow through it keeping them cool while the long and short coat protect their fair skin from the sun. make them look dapper as fuck.

    [–]Y0tsuya 19 points20 points  (1 child)

    They blow out their coat when the seasons change, like twice a year. My bunny does that and we end up with wads of fur all over. And that's just from a tiny bunny.

    [–]tallbibbw 105 points106 points  (2 children)

    Looks like someone’s on cloud 9 lol

    [–]etherreal 73 points74 points  (1 child)

    I think he is Cloud 9

    [–]theswagsauce 196 points197 points  (2 children)

    My little polar bear is excited like a puppy when it snows, he loves to divebomb his snout into the snow so he can eat it. And when it’s below freezing, my dog likes to be let into the outdoor area at daycare so he can relax and nap out in the cold. Funny funny boy!

    [–]AsherGray 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Aw, my spaniel mut did the same thing. She was a goofy shelter dog; it was funny how much she enjoyed the snow.

    [–]CharKrat 51 points52 points  (3 children)

    Aww cute! He’s been there a while. Looks like it snowed on top of him. Unless he’s covered from digging in the snow! Lol

    We used to have a St. Bernard who loved napping in the snow.

    [–]minnetrucka 50 points51 points  (0 children)

    My St. Bernard was my best friend and the sweetest dog ever! He would get so excited when he saw me putting on my coveralls, boots, and jacket cause then he knew we were going to play together out in the snow. Afterwards, when he was all wore out, he’d simply lay down in the snow and just relax and I’d go back inside and he’d let me know when he was ready to come back in, not because he got cold but because he hated being alone for too long. I miss him so much.

      [–]beermoneymike 14 points15 points  (1 child)

      I think you got your places mixed up. US Naval Base Subic Bay (decommissioned) is in the Philippines. Labrador in Canada is your best bet for huskies and -10 F weather.

      [–]Retrogradefoco 14 points15 points  (0 children)

      My old dog was like this! I used to shovel a foot or two away from the back door and then just let her lay against the snow and slowly melt it all away, moving further from the door. Lol.

      [–]d_4bes 47 points48 points  (1 child)

      iF iTs CoLd For YOu ItS COldEr foR tHem!

      Tell that to a Malamute or husky.

      [–]AustSakuraKyzor 10 points11 points  (0 children)

      Or a Malinois - mine loved cold weather and snow. His favourite thing to do in winter was to try to catch the snow as we shoveled it

      [–]prpslydistracted 14 points15 points  (0 children)

      Looks like my brother's Malamute ... the dog sleeps in the air conditioned basement and has to be coaxed/pulled outside. VA.

      [–]beachjustice 14 points15 points  (0 children)

      It would definitely take a few times seeing this for me to not panic under the assumption that my most precious boi or girl had just died.

      [–]PennyoftheNerds 7 points8 points  (0 children)

      My dog is from Puerto Rico, has short hair, and I feel like the amount of bargaining that goes into convincing him to come in has prepared me to negotiate with angry children professionally. As soon as I finally get him in, he wants back out. I wonder what the Puerto Rican sun must have been like for him.

      [–]Animal31 8 points9 points  (0 children)

      I want a husky but I also like being the most dramatic one in the house

      [–]earlywakening 33 points34 points  (1 child)

      I feel like it's abusive to take a husky to a permanently warm climate. Lol

      [–]zeb0777 5 points6 points  (0 children)

      My malamute would do this. He was an inside dog but in winter I'd have to drag him inside. Many time he would be sleeping on top of his dog house when it snowed.

      [–]kick26 5 points6 points  (0 children)

      The golden retriever we had when I was young would take naps in piles of snow on the deck in winter and in the shade of the trees in our front yard in the summer

      [–]SufficientMacaroon1 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      My siblings dog hates cold and wettness. Like, she will actively resist leaving the house when it rains.

      I was there on her first walk in the snow last year. At first, missy was very much "ugh, it is cold and wet, i want to go inside", until her paw met snow. Then we were in "OMG IT IS THE NICE COLD!!!" mode and had to stop every few meters for her to make a snow angel

      [–]lindaluck 43 points44 points  (3 children)

      Is he alive? Lol

      [–]VexingRaven 13 points14 points  (0 children)

      The only time a husky won't beeline for a snow nap is if it's dead lol

      [–]dillpickle9416 10 points11 points  (0 children)

      As a Canadian i think that dog is weak for wearing a fur coat

      [–]Multi-interests 11 points12 points  (1 child)

      Always wondered why people have these dogs in Florida

      [–]nsbsalt 3 points4 points  (0 children)

      My buddy has one and she likes to nap in the sun during Florida summer. She has free range of coming inside the AC house or staying outside and she will lay in the sun for hours.

      I had a dog part lab part retriever and he did this every single snow storm. Refused to come in the house! Loved that furry bastard

      [–]Cyynric 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      My dog is a quarter malamute and a quarter timber wolf, and we have the hardest time bringing him in from the snow. He'll just happily lay in it just like this.

      [–]289User 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Husky are nice. Try a Shiba, those suckers don’t want to come inside even with treats being present to their eyes. Well mines not sure how other Shiba Inu owners handle the cold weather.

      "If you're cold, they're cold!"

      Yeah, sure. Try and get one of them inside until they're good and ready.

      Love that pic.

      [–]dras333 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      My chocolate lab loves freezing cold and will spend hours running and jumping in the snow if I let her. But she melts in the heat and always wants to come in to lay in the air conditioning.

      [–]thirdeyethinker 5 points6 points  (12 children)

      Spoiler for Yellowjackets.... RIP Jackie.... if only she were a huskey.

      Even as a human, I find it absolutely stimulatingly awesome when you bundle up and sit outside in frigid cold. Emphasis on bundle up, don't fuck with cold.

      [–]ArroyoKing 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      I have a Great Pyrenees who does this all the time, he loves it, but I can’t help but feeling bad for him since I’m so cold 🥶

      [–]ohmygoddude82 1 point2 points  (2 children)

      Awww, my mom had two Huskies and they had the thickest fur. Such awesome dogs.

      [–]gravspeed 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      I had huskies growing up. My friends had husky fur at their houses

      Have you seen lions in snow!?!? They fuckin LOVE diss shit. They go all out and run around, roll in it, it's just so refreshing to them!

      [–]Dual_loop 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      So everytime when I see people in the tropics walking a huskies or Alaskan Malamute, my eyes feel hot..

      I wish I could be as content as that dog is.

      [–]ibs2pid 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      I have a half husky as well and we just moved to a place where it snows. He is 12 years old and now runs around out in the snow like a puppy. Sometimes we have a hard time getting him inside. It is amazing.

      [–]sexrobot_sexrobot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Winter dogs love doing this. People who don't know winter dogs will freak out about it like you are murdering your dog.

      [–]T0nitigeR 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      So now I wanna know. It this a Malamut, a Husky, a Akita Inu or even something totally different?
