My Heart Melts at This Snow Dog Creation

I can't say enough great things about Planet Dog [1] — not only does it have adorably awesome pet gear, it has a whole foundation [2] to help working dogs, too. What's more, company staffers shared this crafty canine creation on their Facebook fan page [3] and, while we're short on the white stuff in most of CA, next time I make it up to Tahoe, I'm ready to re-create it. Get inspired and get started on this slideshow now.

Make the Shape

With good packing snow, start with a large ball for the body and a smaller one on top for the head. Use hands or a small hand shovel to carve out a snout (and neck, if desired).

Details, Details, Details

Using more snow, add on to the base to form front and back paws. It's easiest to make the dog in sitting position than standing on all fours.

Improvise the Features

Look for dead leaves, sticks, and rocks to make features. This pooch has rocky eye and nose accents, leaf ears, and whiskers made from twigs.

Good Boy

He's mastered his sit-stay . . . until the snow melts, anyway.
