    Thanks for this post Matt. I had never experienced cold weather hypothermia until a couple of years ago. Similar story shortly after I had read this post in 2011. Dog went lethargic on me and then I remembered this post. Dragged his ass into the blind and was fortunate enough too have a heater in there. He was fine after about 20 minutes. Always use a vest on my dogs now and pay attention to the little signs.

    I hope Ace recovered without any serious organ (internal) damage. Neoprene vests help in this situation somewhat.

    Thanks for this post.

    Having read this, I was able to see the beginning signs in my dog in training last weekend and get him out of the water. Very thankful I was able to ID what was starting to happen and get him out and warmed up before I too was headed to the vet.

    One more person grateful for your story. This was a lesson I could have easily learned the hard way had it not been for now reading this. Thank you brother and God bless!
