Default honey - couple questions

Honey came home yesterday. She hasn't eaten much but she's still playing for 5-10min bursts and sleeping the rest of the time. How do I know if she gets low blood sugar?
And she shakes constantly, she has a little microwavable toy and lots of blankets but how can I tell if she's shivering with cold or just in general? I can't really find anything to fit her at the moment.

Thanks x

Chis shake, period. Both mine shake when they're cold. But they also shake when they're happy, nervous, excited, worried, expectant.......you get the idea. So the shaking isn't any indication that she's cold. What you can do is get a fluffy, fleecy, stretchy sock, (the kind I wear to bed when it's cold) and cut a hole for the head and a couple for the front legs. It won't be pretty, but it will keep her toasty warm till she grows enough that regular dog clothes will fit better.
