So Smudge is from NC. I'm in Ontario.. He's got enough fur to be a wooly mammoth.. but it's puppy coat still. We have 1/2 foot of snow on the ground, isn't as cold as it will get by any means.. Took them to the park last week no issues, they go out to potty and romp no issues.. Take them out yesterday to romp, they both have fun, I go to put the leashes on, and Smudge's knees are knocking.. Not just a little, h's full out shaking. He had issues walking the 50 feet home. If Cider hadn't felt the need to poop 2 more times I would have just carried him.. Cider is like bald. But she's grown up here, she has fur, but it's thinner and more sparse than any other badly bred cocker I've ever seen. Doesn't need a jacket though. How long do you think it will take for him to adjust to our climate? I feel bad for him, I don't think a coat would do much for him though.
