    Default How or what did we do different for this massive Artic Blast?????

    Well where I am from this was very cold for us.Dangerous cold,we are just not use to this type of cold down here.I would like to hear from the men and woemen and let them tell how they delt with this and changes they made ?I think it may be a good topic for people to exchange ideas.Did u bring some dogs inside? I mean tell anything u did outside of your normal routine.

    Personally I brought 2 dogs inside at night.I also doubled all thier feed ,with the idea I could get more water down them..Fed all them once in the evening and once again early in the morning.I just mixed hot water ,dog food and a little bacon grease and mixed it up really good.I have always done the straw so that wasnt a issue..Also i had to chip ice ,lots of ice out of the water bowls which I dont normally do..But all in all the dogs did very well with what i did for the region I live in.Now I know some of you had it alot worse than me.And sometimes no matter what we do we still loose 1 here and there.But good luck to all and hope some warm weather comes your way soon.

    I don't have alot to compare to since this is my first winter down here since getting back into the dogs. I am getting the dogs used to staying outside in the cold weather but the last couple nights have been too cold for me to leave them outside because of their age so they were inside. I've switched one dog over to hay to try to keep her warm but not irritated like the straw does to her. I give them homemade broth to keep em hydrated and warm and I make them a oatmeal/lard "slop" as well. They haven't been outside overnight below 32 yet but they have been outside all day even when it was in the teens and they've done fine so far.

    Yes, blue, all 50 states at some spot was 32 or below yesterday. Bama, I hope this isn't a sign of how the winter will be this year. We usually don't get really cold until Feb. so this winter has started out cold early.
