I love doggies. Our poodle didn't appreciate the snow much. The snow got caught in his little paws and he always wanted to get back in the house ASAP. And would then lick his paws until they were snow-free and warm again.<quoted text>
Speaking of showers, I FINALLY managed to dig out a dog path in my yard. Pooch will be happy.
The shepherd OTOH loved it. He could bounce around in it all day.
I take it your dog is of the small variety hence the path.
Our driveway is still icy in parts and treacherous. Need to spread some more salt.
