Lucy's First Real Snowfall...

I couldn't wait to see Lucy's reaction to her first real snowfall. When we woke up yesterday morning the deck was covered, and the yard was starting to show little signs of green grass. Initially, I didn't think she was even going to go outside, but once she got out there, I couldn't get her back in.

When her "delicate" little paws hit that ice cold snow for the first time, there was a lot of hesitation. She turned right back around and came in the house. Of course, that wasn't going to work and I had to shoo her right back out in the cold.

But, like anything else with Lucy, after the initial greeting of anything new, the hesitation disappears once she's had a chance to give it a good "once over", and Lucy becomes her usual silly self.

Lucy was thrilled to find out how slippery the deck was covered in snow, and wasted no time tearing up the snow on the deck, running, jumping and sliding all over the place.

She seemed shocked to find out that the smelly old shoe she's been playing with in the yard, still smells just the same even covered in snow.

And when her Mama was totally frozen, Lucy was happy to come back in the house and settle down for a nice nap right under a heat vent. Good Lucy!


  1. Snow!

    Isn't it pawesome!?!


  2. Aww...that is SO cute! It brings back Boxer memories. Our Boxer LOVED, LOVED the snow!! Today was little Jane's first day in the snow. She went out in the yard and tore off towards the other end! It was so funny. Then she decided for the rest of the time to EAT the snow. And I would say "gimme that snow!!", and boy that just made her run faster with snow in mouth!! She truly thought she was getting away with something!
    Have a fun day.

  10. Calhoun does that thing with his front paws. It's kind of a play bow with psycho eyes and sudden movements. So funny!

  11. I wish my pups were as excited about the snow. We've got piles of it everywhere. They refuse to go out and pee in my garage instead. Ugh! My garage is gonna start smelling like pee pretty soon.
