Our chow chows love the cold winter season. They love playing in the snow and can spend hours out door even when temperature is –20deg C.
My only fear is their pawls getting frost bite. They dislike wearing doggie boots. Santa’s favourite action is to immersed this head into piles of snow.
Yesterday was this year 1st snow fall and it continued for morning the next day lasting more than 12 hrs. Clearing the drive way is a tough job but full of fun specially with our 2 crazy dogs trying to stop the the snow board.
The moment I had pushed the snow into a pile they will jump on top of it. Normally when I command “ Go home” they will walk back into the house. However when there is snow around, commanding them into the house takes some shouting before they obey.
I can see their displeasure when they walk slow back towards the door with their heads down and constantly turning their heads back to look at me as if to say—“ I want to play, can I stay” . Once I see their sad expression, I have to reverse by command. The word “come” will see 2 rushing bodies galloping into the snow pile.
For the past 2 years I have not been able to create a snowman, The moment I built the body , Santa will jump on to the snow pile. I had given up making a snow man thereafter.
