Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven

The Good, Crazy, & Adorable Life of One Havachon Puppy

Monday Mischief: Snow Shocker!!

on February 25, 2013

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. πŸ™‚

We couldn’t wait to take Daisy out into the snow to play. We got all our gear ready….

Big bear, medium bear, and baby bear gloves ;)

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.

The harness is one thing, but this is going too far!

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.

Hey, it's cold out here! Someone let me IN!!

Maybe if I face this way, they'll open that 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.

I've had enough of this! I wanna sit by the fire!

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….

....and now I had to suffer through a bath AND a brushing....

I refuse to show my face in this thing.

….and then this….

I blame YOU for all this!!

I blame YOU for all this!!

So maybe it’s not such a mystery after all as to why Daisy no longer wants to romp in the snow. πŸ˜‰

    Oh poor Daisy. I guess I can understand why snow doesn’t seem that charming to her! πŸ™‚

  2. Clowie says:

    Maybe there was a little bit too much snow for Daisy!

  3. Oh Daisy I quite agree with you – 8 inches is just too much. But your baby bear gloves are supercute ;o)

  4. Ha! Daisy, you look very cute in all those pictures. We don’t blame you for not wanting to play in the snow. Sometimes it’s just too cold!

    Oink oink,

    Oh Daisy,

    Have you become wise to what comes AFTER the fun in the snow? Love your robe buddy πŸ™‚

    Your pal Snoopy πŸ™‚

  6. If I were as tiny as Daisy, I’d probably also not want to go into the snow, dragging my poor tummy over all that cold stuff. And then, to be humiliated with baths and wraps and all – well, definitely your mischief – not hers πŸ™‚

  7. That happens to Torrey too. But I just hate being cold. Brrrrr

    I have small dogs too, and they like a small snow. But we got 12″ of snow yesterday, and it’s deeper than they are tall. They aren’t having any fun, either. My guess is that they don’t like the snow up against their … underbelly. Even in a coat, their private parts are exposed — and cold! They have chosen to be terrific snugglers inside, instead. They’ll play outside another day!

    • raisingdaisy says:

      I always wondered how dogs of any size could stand having cold snow on their tummies, but they all seem to enjoy playing in it anyway. Daisy LOVED it last year, we couldn’t get her to come inside, and it was deeper than this! She was romping up, over and through it. I guess she’s becoming an old lady a little be early. πŸ˜‰

    Imagine that as a medium-bear-gloves-owner, you have a wonderful, sparkling, frosty 45 inches of snow and you are forced to run in it by the large-bear-gloves-owner. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm?

  10. Will and Eko says:

    That pouty face kills me! Guess Daisy is just a summer-time girl.

    • raisingdaisy says:

      Early summer, fall and spring are Daisy’s outdoor times. She hates temperature extremes – she’s disliked July and August temps since she was a puppy and absolutely refused to go outside!

  11. The photos are just great! Bless her heart…she was COLD! I think it’s a sign of maturity to know when you’ve just had enough. πŸ™‚ That is a lot of snow and it looks very cold to me, but I must admit, it also looks really beautiful! I hope the roof is repaired? It also looks heavy!

    • raisingdaisy says:

      Fortunately it was a light snow here, but much heavier farther north. Nope, the roof still hasn’t been repaired, but the roofer said we’re on his schedule for this Wednesday and Thursday. Of course, they’re now predicting a major storm for Wednesday…. 😦

  12. FleaByte says:

    Oh poor Daisy! I’m jealous of your snow, but my dogs certainly wouldn’t be jealous of the bath!

  13. Awww – sorry you didn’t enjoy the snow! Maybe next time, right?

  14. Woof! Woof! But it was FUN. Happy Monday. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  15. thatjenk says:

    Ha! It must be tough when the show is as deep as she is tall!
    We use Musher’s Secret on our dogs’ feet to prevent the snow and ice from balling up between their pads – it works great!

  16. Oh, ice balls on the tummy doesn’t sound like fun at all! Cute pics though!

    Happy MM!

    • raisingdaisy says:

      Thank you Jackie! Our last dog had it much worse – she had very long hair and long icicles plus rows of heavy ice balls would hang from her poor tummy. But she LOVED playing in the snow and nothing deterred her!

  17. Zena says:

    Never seen it – don’t want to go in it!

  18. Novroz says:

    wow…look at that snow!!! so white but looks so freezing!

    I can understang how Daisy feels about it.

    I love her outfits…dogs sure have cute clothing. I wish they make one for turtles too πŸ˜‰

  19. Daisy looks SO cute in her robe!

  20. The Hook says:

    Daisy’s adventures never disappoint, that’s for sure!

  21. Chris says:

    I don’t know what all the fuss is about with the snow. Our Lucy simply loves the snow and somehow the remains of it will go away …

  22. barkandchatter says:

    What a LOT of snow! That looks like hard work for a little dog!
