    Talking A puppy's first snow...

    We finally got our first accumulation of snow tonight and I felt the new puppy needed to experience it. Do you know how hard it is to hold a leash and follow a puppy around with a flashlight and camera at the same time?

    I do... now.









    This still doesn't beat the time that we let the other dog (also a chihuahua) out into her first New Hampshire winter... it was like watching Bugs Bunny tunneling through a field. All I could see was a trail and the very tip of a black tail sticking out.

    Erm... that's as "full sized" as she's gonna get. She's half min-pin and half chi.

    Sweet! My old German Shepherd used to love the snow more than anything from a pup. I guess my excitement with a good snow rubbed off on him. Min-Pins are pretty high strung, and easily excited....best be watchful with that one! Congrats on the puppy and the first snow. The pets are priceless and give us way more than we could expect out of life alone.

    Oh, she's not high strung at all. She has a lot of lazy chihuahua in her. Although, it's funny... her dad (chihuahua) is VERY high strung and was really a wuss, but her mom (min-pin) is calm and gets along with everyone.

    Snow...Oh man come visit us. We just got another foot. It has barely stopped in the last 4 days....I feel like I live in a snowglobe.

    Chooie, pets are so much fun, especially young ones. Enjoy your young friend.

    Our new puppy just seen his first snow the other day - ran out the door like usual and stopped dead in his tracks. Usually he just ran around in circles, but not this time.

    First sign of snow and mine refuses to go out. It takes about a week of kicking her out the door before she goes on her own.
