Cookie’s First Snowstorm

As if Sandy wasn’t enough drama, this Wednesday a snowstorm came to our area…putting seven inches on the ground for us!

Luckily, I had managed to pick up a doggie-puffer parka at Target (which, by the way, I am happy with – it’s their Boots & Barkley brand. Water-resistant, easy to put on, and nicely lines. )I wasn’t sure what Cookie would think about snow.  As you know, she really hates the rain.  But she does love to crunch on ice cubes at home.   Well, we were happy to discover that she LOVES the snow.  This little video captures some of her earliest snow moments.  Since the snowfall has ended she has been having fun discovering all the properties of snow: that it’s soft and fluffy and fun to plow through when it first falls, and then it gets hard and “crunchy” underfoot later.  Just like a kid, she loves to lick and eat the snow as well.  She has extra fun digging up and burying her bones now. She doesn’t seem to mind the cold at all, and if anything has been spending more time outside.   Her paw prints in the snow look like little daisies, and I now have to be careful when I walk her that she doesn’t pull, so I don’t wipe out on the black ice.  Definitely new territory we are (literally) walking into here!

I am still blogging from the road, (today we are at Cosi) as my home internet remains down from Sandy.   Cookie and I thank you for all of your support!  We hope you have recovered from Sandy and will keep the posts coming.  Warm and Fuzzies, Diana
