Often, it's common to see dogs with thick fur playing in the snow. Nordic breeds like huskies and retrievers, which were bred to thrive in cold, snowy conditions, tend to like snow much more than those with thin coats like greyhounds and chihuahuas, which will get cold quickly.

So...wait a minute. Hold on. They're saying that dogs who have heavy coats of fur, who were bred to do well in the snow, like the snow MORE than dogs who are comparatively fur-less and were NOT bred to be snow dogs.

Sounds suspicious, I think they're hiding something.
