Dogs in the snow

Spot does not seem bothered by the snow. His former owners told us they have seen him sleep outside in a blizzard. So we weren't too concerned about him. There is room in the barn for him, as on rainy days I have seen him in there with the alpacas.

Well, since the cold winter weather hit, Spot found a place he likes to snuggle in:

If you look close, you can see his head poking out of the top of the hay bin. That stinker!

He does still get up to greet me when I arrive :)

I also got pictures of Dottie enjoying the snow. I have never met a dog who loves snow more than Dottie. Whenever there is freshly fallen snow, Dottie will run and roll in the snow. She'll dive down, making sure to fall on her ears first to dig into the snow. Here are pictures of her doing her fresh snow dive:

Dottie is our beloved house dog, who was J's dog before I even met him. She's been apart of this family since before we were a family. The kids know no life before Dottie. She's getting old now, which is hard to see. She was hit by a car when she was 2 years old, and while she was fixed up at the time, we knew as she aged her hips would show signs of the accident. Despite her older age, she still dives into the snow with the same viggor she ever had.
