Another Winter Dog

I don’t think we had our first snow until the end of December but it was definitely feeling like winter at least a few weeks before that. Allie seemed to thrive in the colder temperatures but it wasn’t until she experienced her first snow that I knew we had ourselves another winter dog.

Her first day experiencing snow seemed like the moment she’d been waiting all her short life for – her enthusiasm for burying her head and rolling around in snow banks was definitely an indication that winter was her preferred season. Unfortunately we had another La Nina year which meant less frequent storms and less quantities of snow but we made the most of each snow day, spending extra hours outside so Allie could play around as well as hike.
