    Willow loves the snow, loves to run in it but loves to eat it more. When we walk she constantly grabs mouthfuls of freshly fallen snow. She eats so much of it that, no matter how much she squats on the walk, the first thing she has to do when we get back is to be let out into the back garden to pee. :)

    Here are a couple of shots of the princess on patrol:

    We cannot do walks without booties due to the stuff on the roads - you have SUCH a beautiful area for walking Willow. Jealous!!!

    Yes, we began the 'eat snow, have to pee' routine last night. Brodie was SOOOO very over stimulated by the stuff falling from the sky yesterday afternoon - barked out the back door, insisted on going out what seemed like 5,000,000 times. Today we scraped off the deck which means barking like mad at the shovel which should know that it's job is to throw snow for Brodie to chase! We just got in from a rousing game of frisbee - he is not fizzed by the cold, I am not a fan. We only got a coating of icy mix out of the 8 - 12" forecast, but there is more supposedly on its way this afternoon and evening. I'd much rather have snow than ice ANY day!!!!

    Nice jacket Willow!
    Piper is absolutely addicted to eating snow...2 years ago he needed a cortisone shot for a sore shoulder, ever since he can't get enough of it! Fortunately for us we have almost no snow, it's crazy...since October (just before Thanksgiving) we've gotten lots of snow but every time we've gotten a mild spell and it's all melted. You guys have tons of snow compared to us Glenn, I can see grass still lol. I like it better this way lol.
