What happened??? Up until now, Daisy has always LOVED playing in the snow as much as we do. Now, suddenly, she doesn’t like it at all! Doesn’t that go completely against the Doggy Handbook??
We’ve been anxiously waiting for a good snowfall this winter. We had a lot of little teasers – little dustings of flurries – but a couple of weeks ago we were finally braced for a full-blown snowstorm.
And we got it. A wonderful, sparkling, frosty 8 inches of it.
We couldn’t wait to take Daisy out into the snow to play. We got all our gear ready….
She seemed mesmerized by the deep white stuff lying outside the door, and she got all excited when her harness and leash made their appearance.
But once DD carried her outside and put her down in the snow, she just stood there in her little winter coat, frozen in place. Then, to our surprise, she turned around and pulled toward the door.
Weird. So DD picked her up and brought her further into the yard, then put her down and started running with her.
Daisy went part way out, then stopped abruptly, turned, and raced back toward the door. She wanted no part of that icy winter wonderland.
So where’s the mischief? Well, I guess there really isn’t any on Daisy’s part, but if I had to point a finger, I’d say it’s those mischievous little ice balls that collect all over Daisy’s tummy and between her pads. Because this…..
….inevitably leads to this….
….which led to this….
….and then this….
So maybe it’s not such a mystery after all as to why Daisy no longer wants to romp in the snow.
