    Steven you have over-looked an option here........ What you need is a pet CAT to take every where & i happen to know where to "score" one at:eek:oooh::wink::tounge_out:

    Beagles are pretty hearty little dogs, i had one when i was a kid, he would play with me out in the snow for hours at a time, during the hottest months of the summer, same thing, wouldnt go in till i did.

    I've got a rat terrier that's pretty tough. He loves the snow and cold.

    Patterdale terrier, Check out a kennel in Tn, called Masons. These dogs are tough as they come bar none. Might be Lb. for Lb. the toughest little dogs around today(breed as a whole). They come smooth coat, or a long coarse coat.

    Jack Russel TERROR! Toughest most fearless SOB I've ever had. They come in a variety of sizes and coats. You won't have a rat, mouse, chipmunk or squirrel within a 1/4 mile. Mine jumped out of a moving truck window at 30 MPH to chase a big dog. She rolled and didn't miss a step. But do not try to keep with another dog around especially 2 females. Only 1 will survive. If you have a barn it will never have rodents.
