I live in Renton & my 2 actually enjoy the snow…. in small increments and only to go out in the yard and scare the birds off the birdfeeder. They more enjoy sitting in front of the fire.
Hunter (with the red jacket) weighs only 20lbs and shivers when it goes below 70! Bandit was wearing a bandana as a fashion statement because she recently impaled herself on a stick down by the Cedar River.
We can't wait for all this to melt in 2 days!
We are just getting hit today with that very cold air coming down from the Northwest. It's interesting the way the different Basenjis, like people tolerate hot and cold. Now Buddy, 28 lbs will get very hot on hikes when temps are in the low 70s and has to stop here and there in the shade to cool off. He likes the cold. Wet weather is no problem either.
My previous 2 did not like the cold, had thinner fur and would shiver in the house at temps of 65. My first tri Basenji had no problem with the cold like Buddy I think because of the thicker fur. Hot weather just does Buddy in.
