Sorry! You sounded extremely upset that they were out in the cold, and I assumed from what you had said so far, that you really were afraid for their lives. You said, "Pray they don't freeze to death!", and that you were "extremely worried". I took that literally, and figured if they were in danger of freezing to death, they should be rehomed. Now from what you say it doesn't sound like they are in danger of dying. I, personally, would never keep dogs outside, but it sounds like you'd rather have it that way than not at all. Please don't blame me for taking seriously what you said so dramatically...

Good luck with the situation.

For those of you who have kept up with this situation, I thought that after our vet visit about an hour ago I would tell you all the results. She has glaucoma in one eye and possibly a deep ear infection. The vet gave her an antibiotic shot, a steroid shot, and a 10 days worth of antibiotic capsules. If she is still tilting her head in 7-10 days, she will go back for an additional shot.

Thanks for everyone's support.

Thanks for letting us know . I think if you had posted about their house , before your comment that you hoped they didn't freeze to death , you wouldn't have gotten any slack here . I personally saw them in a penned area out in the cold .

I apologise, I should have made that more clear and not so dramatic.

I'm glad to hear that it's nothing more serious. I know how worried a person can be when they know the pet they love so much is ill and they don't know what to do to help it. A lot of pets in the Kansas-Oklahoma area are outside dogs, especially in rural areas and they don't seem to suffer from the extremes. I'm sure there are exceptions but it sounds like you have prepared a very good outdoor home for your pets and that you love them a lot. Just keep loving them.
