After 50 inches of snow so far this January I think old Fran has given up. All the poopie paths in the world won't take him where he wants to go. He wants to spend his time just boodling along the ground sniffing out new excitements but right now the little guy is severely restricted by the depth of the stuff.
I asked him if he wanted to go outside, normally it gets Fran all worked up but this morning he poked his nose outside, smelled nothing but snow, and just sauntered back onto the warmth and comfort of his couch.
C'mon Spring!!!

My Porter feels the same way! But then again, thats always how he feels about going out when the weather is anything less than optimal. We are located in boston as well, and we are tired of the snow and cold and all the salt on the roads.

Anabelle does this anytime it's even raining or below 40 degrees. I have to wait until she sticks her head out the dog door and then push the rest of her out or else she'll come right back in and go on the carpet.

I would imagine several inches of snow must be very strange to a blind dog. The area he thought he knew is now foreign. Even with a good sniffer, it must be weird. And like Francis, I too am sick to death of all this snow! And I don't have to go outside to pee.

Porter hates going outside to do his 'business'. He doesn't like snow getting on his private parts. And since he is a very short but long dog, and we just had 12+ inches of snow, it was just unavoidable...

I started to sweep our deck off to allow my wife and I to take the garbage out without breaking our necks. Layla decided that was a much more convenient place to relieve herself than walking down a flight of stairs and pushing her way through 10 inches of snow. Although she loves the snow, as soon as she realizes there is new stuff on the ground she goes tearing around the yard like a maniac.

We don't get a lot of snow so when mine see it they tear around in it and eat it. I think the most we ever had was maybe MAYBE two inches at any one time. But for poor Virga that was almost touching her tummy and when she's crouch to pee it would touch. Her tummy was always cold. And her ears.

Mine love the snow, Ella especially, she would LOVE to spend hours outside digging her nose in the snow.

I miss not having to put on 8 million layers of clothes just to take them on a walk, spring can't come soon enough!
