and her friends
I always wonder if they feel it on their paws. The rest of them is covered in insulating fur, but it would seem that the pads of their paws would allow sufficient heat transfer to occur to make it painful after a while.
I've seen no evidence of them feeling much temperature through their feet. They do react when they get ice in their paws, but that is all.
I had a golden retriever that pushed her nose under the snow and then ran at top speed around the yard. Looked like a frickin' snow blower.
The nerves in their feet must start right about where the cold gradient stops.
I'll have to ask the vet next time we go.
