Experience description:  

My dog was barking in his crate as I was sleeping on the couch, I woke up and sat up and yelled at my dog to stop it, then at the foot of the couch I saw him and I could tell it was him , his hair, his clothing ..I closed my eyes and reopened them several times to make sure I was really seeing this. The thing that bothered me about it was he appeared to be freezing cold, he had his hands in his pockets he was bent over and rocking in motion up and down like he was literally freezing. The reason why I am filling this out is because I would like some feedback on why he was so cold. This really bothered me
