I Was Worried about Kobe, for a Couple Days

This week, our weather is very wet and chilly, around 30 degrees F. Instead of sleeping inside his out-door building, Kobe decided to spend his night camping out beneath our back porch! During the summer months, I never made a big deal out of this choice he made. Kobe liked to sleep where he could stay nice and cool. When the colder weather set in, I was convinced this would definitely change. Being a creature of routine and habit, Kobe made up his mind to remain sleeping underneath the porch! This morning, I was pleasantly surprised! I spotted Kobe walking out of his comfortable back building, stretching and yawning as he normally does:) What a relief!

I am sure he sleeps where he feels comfortable, you should not be concerned.

My husband says the exact same thing! When Kobe is uncomfortable, he will go inside his little building for a good night's sleep:)

If Kobe think I want him to do something, he won't do it!:( When it's his own good idea, Kobe is all for it!

That is good to hear. Maybe as the nights get colder he will sleep in his bed instead of underneath the porch.

Kobe is smart, if it's too cold for him he'll go into his house but if it's comfortable why not stay on the porch. He just wants to be as close to you as he can.

Is that Kobe in the picture? Is he a Labrador? You must be happy that Kobe is fine now.

He must have finally gotten cold enough to switch things up. Animals are so funny. My cat will lay out on our balcony in the pouring rain.

We have a shelf with a space heater plugged in when the weather gets very cold. Kobe doesn't like it real warm, just comfortable. If his ears feel warm, he's fine. His building is well insulated, there's dry straw on the floor and his dog-pad is about eight inches thick, with 3 warm blankets piled on top.

@TheHorse Kobe has a house built in the back yard. Here's the picture:) The front porch is a tunnel for entering the flap door.

@kobesbuddy good for him, my dog odie, just only have one spot, and if he's not comfortable, he's going to get some dirty clothes and put it in to his spot, to make him feel better, I wonder if I able to upload videos here, while he doing that.

I worry about him, but my husband says that's needless. Because if Kobe gets cold, he will go inside. If he gets too warm, he will come outdoors.
