All of the dogs enjoy time in the snow, and even Dixie at 11 years old played around a bit. With her heavy coat, she wasn't bothered much by the cold and gave me the 'what?' stare when I called her to come inside from the pen.
Ben romps in the snow like a bunny- bounding from spot to spot, and roots through the snow with his nose. He must enjoy the sensation, 'cause he does it over and over again.
Playing ball in the snow is lots of fun, even though the ball doesn't bounce. But it does kick up puffs of snow, and that is crazy fun by GSD standards!
Overnight, the snow got a thick coating of ice. Freki enjoyed it, the others, including me, not so much. Two days later, the snow was gone, and the yard became a muddy morass. And it looks like another winter front will sweep through later today.
