I'm so jealous, I want to get out of California too but I think I need money and a job first to do that. Sparkey never seen snow so I don't know what to tell you but he hates rain. if it rains he doesn't even go on his pad which is on the porch but under the roof.

Scooby is not that keen on snow, but he also is an outside potty trained boy so after the first dump of snow and the initial shock he just goes out and does his thing. We do sort of make an area for him by shoveling the snow aside, but this also kills the lawn and in spring when it's growing we have to reseed the area.

We ordered on of those doggy poop houses that I think were shown on here some time ago, well long story short they couldn't fill the order because according to them the people who make them couldn't get it right, but of course they took our money, but we did get it back. It's a shame though because it would have been ideal for Scooby in the winter to just go in there. Anyway here's a picture of Scooby out in the snow, and how we scooped out an area so he could go potty.

Yes otherwise he just won't go out there, even with it scooped he is still sort of stand offish about the white cold fluffy stuff in his yard The last two winters haven't really been that bad though so we didn't have to worry all that much

We live in Manitoba, Canada where we have tons of snow all winter and -35 temperatures. Lizzie actually prefers to go outside........silly girl! Sophie used to think she was a bunny and loved hopping in the snow.

Default Was Researching Why My Maltese Loves The Snow

I was just researching why my Maltese, Gigi, loves the snow so much since I believe they originated in Malta which is the Mediterranean, correct? But she just LOVES the snow!

I have to bring her in and give her a warm shower to get the ice balls out of her fur. She just pounces in it no matter how tall the drifts are. I'm so afraid she'll get stuck so I watch her closely.

Here are some pics after one of her rumps in the snow.

We're lucky that we normally don't get a lot of snow here, but we do have a couple of good snowfalls 3-4 times a year. We used to get a lot more.

Anyway -- Lacie (who was raised in Southern California and is a true beach bunny) hates the snow or rain or any type of bad weather. She refuses to go out in it, and that's when I'm really glad that I potty pad trained her as a puppy (in addition to going outside).

Tilly, on the other hand, loves snow. It's hard to get her to come in when we have snow in the yard.

Secret (who grew up in South Florida) seems fasinated by snow. She likes to sit on the covered patio and watch the snowflakes fall. She seems mesmerized by snow.

Mine love it unfortunately.. they will run and play in it like wild snowbunnies instead of doing their poo and pee... It's funny to watch them though, just not fun freezing my bum off outside or cleaning off giant snow clumps off their fur inside...

Oh well it's so much fun to watch them I just let them do it and deal with the mess afterwards...

Should be easier since I clipped them short this year...these are last year, in full coat...

I can't wait to see what Bella does "IF" we get snow this year If she acts anything like if its raining then we have a problem because she hates rain! It rained here yesterday and my dad said she wouldn't go off the mat on the porch to go potty. So he picked her up and took her out to the pine straw just like her daddy does
