Is Your Pet a Snow Bunny?

Even though having pets outside in freezing temps can be dangerous for long periods of times, many pooches enjoy a good pounce in the snow. North didn't make it to Tahoe this holiday weekend, but we hope to get up there soon. He's a tad undecided about the cold stuff; he likes to stay on stomped, semi-solid ground to sniff around the snowbank – unfortunately, he makes it his business to smell it, not to do his business in it. How about your pets?

My dog goes crazy after the first big snowfall of the season - it's like Christmas morning to him! He loves to run around in it and he'll even put his head down (while running) and eat some :P As long as it isn't yellow, we don't mind.

Kona is 3 months old and today was his first real snow experience. He loved it on our walk this morning. I kept telling him that he is part Husky (really he's a schnoodle.)

We just adopted Io so I'm not sure if she's had experience with snow. Most likely not, since she was neglected by her former family in Central Valley California (no snow there) so I doubt they took her on any snow trips. She gets fearful of new experiences (busses, elevators) so she might get frightened, but she might not! She is quite unpredictable that way.

B-Bop isn't too sure about it. We live in the California desert, so it's not like he gets a chance to see it very often. But the few times we've visited, it's more like "What the heck????" confusion than fun times. I think he hates being cold mostly, so then he gets grumpy haha

My cat-Big-LOVES the snow. We live in an apartment, but whenever it snows he jumps and rolls and lays down in the snow on the sisters cat chandler hates it. He joins Big for a few minutes outside, just to check things out, then comes back inside and snuggles up on the couch.

Raja's DEF. a snowdog- being a Siberian Husky, she would stay outside 24/7 if we let her!

As I shovel the snow, my kitty sits and watchs outside my door. Just to satisfy kitty curiosity, I put her little kitty paws in the a snow drift. Let's just say she hasn't been so fascinated with snow since then. :)

My dog hates it. Unless I shovel snow from a little section of the backyard, he won't even go outside to go potty. He'll just hold it forever.

My dog is afraid of so many things that I was worried when we got our first snowfall last week (I'm in SC) our surprise, she loved it! She was unsure at first, and then had sooo much fun playing in was so cute!

this was my dog's first winter and he was a little scared the first time he saw snow and didnt want to go outside and ran back in after he peed (LOL) but now he loves it and i have trouble getting him back inside... the snow could be higher than him and he still loves galloping through it. it's so cute.
