This is a short one. 
It started with me reading an article about how some lame owner left her dogs in freezing weather with no place to get warm.  One of her dogs died and was frozen solid.  I don’t want to go any further because it sickens me and I have nothing left to say except curse words.

If you have an outdoor dog make sure he or she has proper shelter in cold weather,  actually in any weather.

I do not need to give my typical hints.  Do a Web search and you will find many articles on how to make sure your dog  has proper shelter.
