There is no better combination. We got a nice coating on the ground yesterday... maybe 1/4" of snow. I live above a huge park with a big, open grassy area and a few people brought their pups out to play. Of course, Kaleb saw them from the window and started barking and crying, alerting me that he was not among the group of dogs playing in the snow. So I took him out and boy did he have a ball. First he kept running around in the snow, then he kept jumping to catch snowflakes falling from the sky with his tongue and then he started a triple threat wrestling match with a shepherd mix and a lab mix. By the time the match was over (Kaleb declared himself the victor), his tongue was hanging down halfway and the other dogs were full of mud, grass and snow. There is no better joy than playing with your dog in the snow and watching him happily gallop about in the cold, crisp elements.
