We have potential for snow in the UK in the coming days, which has set me off thinking.
If I were to go out with no shoes in snow, I would be hopping around within seconds, complaining about the cold on my feet, and worrying about what nasty things would happen to me as a result.
But, we let our pets out in the cold, they walk in the snow, and indeed sometimes appear to enjoy it.
Now our dogs come inside and love to lay in front of a warm fire or radiator, but still don't seem to worry about walking on cold or frozen ground, and never seem to suffer ill effects.
So my question is, do they not feel the cold like us?
