My babies despise the cold. They are thinned haired dogs with slim limbs, so cold and heat affects them quickly. Finn will go out, inspect the snow, and then do his business before coming back in. Echo won’t even approach the door emitting a cool breeze. However they ADORE the heat! They will stand over a floor heat vent until their skin turns pinkish, then jump onto the bed to curl up in a blanket.

Puddy seems to like the cold, though our cold is hardly cold compared to what you guys call cold. I have no idea what 7 below feels like, but since I hate it when the temps drop to the 30's and even the 40's, I believe that I am spoiled. Puddy will go out on cold days here and lay outside and I am inside with the heater on and loving it.
Normally I would say Jack does not like the cold, but this AM when it was 7 below with the wind chill he was laying out on the back steps. Then, when I came home from the gym he was laying next to the pool in a sunny spot, so who knows? He tries to make a liar of me whenever he can!

I don't really think either of them like it because they don't want to go out as much, and when they do they don't stay long. Of course, it could have something to do with me making them put their sweatshirts on.
