We have yet to experience winter in New England with our basset, but she already seems to be having problems with being chilly (she lost a lot of hair since she was constantly scratching for years before we got her. Her previous owners never treated her or the cats in their house for fleas!). She tends to start shivering, her whole body shaking. We tuck her in with a blanket at night now, but she's still shaking. I asked the vet and she seemed to feel it was that she had so little hair on her underside, but I'm wondering if anyone else has a chilly basset. I never thought I would get my dog a jacket but I Bailey might need one since it's not even that cold yet!
