We’ve had more snow over the last few days. Currently we have about 2 feet of snow in the yard. The best part of having all of this snow? Watching the dogs play around in it. Now of my four furry friends, who do you suppose likes the snow the best?
Yes, Anneliese. The smallest of my dogs, is the one with the biggest love of the snow. She literally stays out until she is frozen and then comes in to warm up.
She loves to run and jump in it, tunnel and roll her very own snowballs!
Then there is Mr. Fritz. He likes it too, but then, Fritz loves being outside in general.
Fritz is a big helper. If you are out shoveling, he will play around you, or sit and watch and keep you company. If I could only figure out how to get him to shovel snow with me, I’d be all set!
If he hears the snow blower turns on, Fritz heads inside the house. He is a big boy who is a real chicken!!!
Now Greta will go out int he snow, take three or four steps from the door and do her thing.
Then she turns around and heads back in. Greta would be much happier if we lived in a warmer climate.
Arnie, will go out and play like a crazy man, but as soon as he gets covered with those teeny, tiny snowballs, it’s in the house he goes. I always laugh at the way he looks. None of the other dogs get them, but poor Arnie gets those little snowballs all over his legs, tail and tummy. We’re talking, adorable!
Now you can see a little bit why I don’t really mind the snow. Watching the dogs play, in their own ways, makes it worth all the work that each storm brings.
