Since our dog has minimal bodyfat he is sensitive to the cold. When he's warm he spreads out to the size of a pony. When he's cold he curls up to the size of a large cat.

This makes him analogous to one of those round thermostats whose bi-metal coil contracts and expands with temperature. We refer to his sleeping configuration as a dogmomenter since you can tell the ambient temp by it.

In the illustrated configuration he was in full tuck prior to the application of blanket, then his head came out as he warmed up. The legs are still in semi-tuck so he's not fully up to operating temperature yet.
