Unless you have a “Winter” Dog you might not know how hard it is to get them to come inside when it is cold and snowy out. Josie was born for the snow, ice, cold. The second the temperature drops, she is beaming, hides in the yard – as well as a 100lb dog can in hopes that we will not see her and make her come inside. Tomorrow’s storm will mean, she sits at the window and whines until some one lets her out… then she runs back to the door in hope you too will go out and play with her. One of my favorite memes (what a stupid word) is the “reminder” about not letting your dogs stay out in the cold, then underneath is a picture of a Berner that says “Bitch, please”. Snow is her element. If only I could get her to shovel while she was out there. There is not an inch of my back yard that will not have a happy paw prints on it by the end of the day tomorrow.
