    :hide Not trying to make anyone crazy who is sick of snow, but here's a shot of one of the spots we take the dogs to on a Sunday walk. Overlooks the coastline. It was while Meadow was on rest-mode due to her spay, last Sunday.

    We are supposed to get a major winter storm next Wed/Thurs - up to 6 inches of rain in two days.... :eek2: hopefully no flooding. Should be loads of fun getting the dogs to potty in a downpour..... :rolleyes2: I think snow would be a lot better to cope with than that!

    What a beautiful shot...must be a blast to let them play off lead to run full out!
    I am with you, snow is so much more fun for dogs! Yesterday we got several inches and the dogs just love it!

    Lovely pictures! The sun and water and palm trees setting is gorgeous!

    Beau is so calm in the snow - Brodie goes absolutely nuts at the slightest flakes that fall. He runs around jumping in the air eating them. He LOVES snow and has that joy of young kids let out in it. We've only had one real snow storm so far this year - he was in heaven! We have had a few days of flakes falling and potentially some tonight or tomorrow. Been sort of a blah, gray winter so far with not much activity.

    mine love the snow- at the holidays, they actually got to play in some this year:yes:
    luckily, if they have to go, they will go out in the rain. if they don't have to, frequently they will look out the door and turn around if it's pouring.......

    wow love the photo Sharon! I would be walking that everyday haha.
    That's making me miss our summer, we're stuck in limbo at the minute, it's freezing cold but no snow, just ice everywhere.

    Beautiful picture Sharon! I’m very very envious...overnight low of -35 C with windchill of -45 C. High tomorrow of -26 and windchill again -45 C. You can have the snow (and cold) and I’ll gladly take the rest!
    Puppy’s first day here will be spent indoors with plenty of pee pads

    sometimes when we have tropical weather it rains all day for more than one day. I remember one time, I had to put the rain coat on Callie, put my rain coat on and take her out on leash with an umbrella in the back yard. she was not going out on her own and I told her, it wasn't going to get any better any time soon. she did eventually go when I made sure she could stay as dry as possible:rolleyes2::uhoh:

    It's a snow day here. We walked very early to get our steps in prior to the snowfall making things difficult on the pathways. We got home just as the snow was starting to really fall heavily. Half a foot is coming our way.

    Eating her way back home:

    Hey dad, that snow is getting in my eyes:

    Willow likes to go out frequently when it is snowing. I think she does it to get towelled off when she comes back in.
