Dusty Dog Likes Snow

After a winter of region-wide dry, warm, sunny high pressure (that trapped Boise in an icy, gloomy, cold inversion) we had snow last week. My friend Mollie’s dog, Dusty, couldn’t resist dragging his nose in the powdery fun stuff as he galloped around on our walk. He looked like an over-eager hot chocolate drinker with whipped cream on his nose.
When I stopped to take some photos in the off leash area, Dusty came back to get me.
Then he told me to keep up, so he wouldn't have to come look for me again.

    You can read his lips!

    Yes, Dusty Dog's walking companion can get sidetracked by other things...


  2. It's so great when dogs get so excited about the snow - reminds me of childhood. My dog Nimba loves to make snow angels - and eat the snow, which of course makes her get sick... - Justine Shaffner

    1. Justine,

      Dogs really do have fun in the snow! I think Dusty likes winter because he wears that fur coat all year. I'm trying to get him to swim in the river to cool off, but he's not a fan...maybe this summer he'll "take the plunge."
