    great topic - I have a Chocolate Lab, when we walk to the beach she starts panting and whining when we get close; if we get stopped by a red light on Ocean she gets hysterical having to wait 1-3 minutes in sight of the water. What happens is is they get an extra layer of fat right under their fur during the winter and combined with the thick coat which gets denser & more waterproof in the winter so its like us swimming in a dry suit, basically. I get yelled at by the cops in my town at least once a month during the spring and summer for having my dog illegally being at the beach but I don't really give a ****.It would even be worth it I got a ticket but that won't happen - being local has its priviliges
