With highs only in the single digits & lows near 10 below, we made the decision last night to let Bogey sleep in the house on our bedroom floor. He actually spent basically the entire evening inside. He is a dog and while I have full confidence that he would probably be just fine outside, he is our furry son and I just hate for him to have to suffer through such frigid weather. This is not the first time for him to stay in our house (see this post from January 2009); however it's also not a frequent occurrence.
See how calm he is when he's in the house!

So...for now as the temps are forecast to be below zero for the next 3 nights...he'll be sleeping inside, with us, on a floor covered in blankets & towels to collect all the dog hair. And for those of you who might suggest a crate in the garage or keeping him in the garage...trust me, it's just not worth it for all the prep we would have to do to puppy proof the garage & I'm positive he won't step even a paw towards any kind of crate. Oh the things we do for our pets...
