A puppy’s first snow is the best! We have had a dusting of snow twice this fall, but yesterday we got almost three inches overnight. Olivia was fascinated, and the rest of us were quite pleased too.
Everyone loves to get out and make the first foot/paw prints in fresh snow. Mom and Bailie started the day going for a run. Mom has her IceBug running shoes to keep her from slipping. It was the first time she has ran with a dog in the snow since she broke her ankle slipping on ice in 2017. They came home and said it was a great run.
Olivia had to go to obedience class, so we had to get out in the yard quickly after our walk for some fun. Somehow, Olivia felt like she was the snow expert and should lay down some rules for us to play by.
Of course, I won’t settle for that. I’m pretty much the smallest, but the pack leader in our house. I dug out my fangs and reminded her of who the boss is around here. She got back in line quickly.
We did some good racing here and there, and around the fun pine trees. The snow was coming down from above nicely, and we were kicking it up from the ground too.
Olivia was looking for all the leaves and her toys in the snow. She has never had stuff disappear under a white coat before.
After Olivia got home from class, she went out for a bit with Bailie. Bailie isn’t very interested in hanging out with a puppy. I guess when you are six, puppies are beneath you or something.
Since Bailie didn’t want to play with her, Olivia did her best to pester her in the hope of getting a game of chase me going. No, it didn’t happen.
I came out again a bit later. Olivia and I discussed what games we should play in the fresh snow. Most likely it will all melt, so we need to make good use of it while we have it. She seems to be shocked that all the white stuff will disappear.
The only thing Olivia doesn’t like about snow is the snowballs in her paws. You know her paws are huge, which means she has a lot of snow between her jumbo toes! It is a lot of work for her to get rid of the snowballs. We are off to a good start for winter, let’s hope it keeps on going!
We’re thankful for snow, so we’re joining the Brian’s Home Blog Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
