Snow Dogs

IMG_0624Scottish Terriers Misha and Grisha love the snow.  It wasn’t always like this.  Once upon a time, simply dressing the little guys in their sweaters or jackets would render them frozen, immobile statues.

Now they’ve grown with the years and enjoy a good romp through the fluffy stuff:  piles of snow heaped on their noses, and icicle-like dreadlocks resulting if their long locks are left outside for too long, making their own paths and trails, creating a patch of yellow snow wherever their hearts desired.

Here they are at a snowy dog park that they have all to themselves….IMG_0622

The other day, Misha’s paws grew frozen after only a few minutes.  The pads must have gone numb, and suddenly, he wasn’t moving.  Benedetto rescued the little fellow before frostbite set in.

Inside they came for their rubdown with towels.  I think they might be of the IMG_0625Scottish-Russian persuasion, since they seem to relish the hot-cold-hot, banya-like experience. No beating with birch branches, but the towel massage sufficed well enough as a substitute in their minds.

They told me so.  Then they curled up in front of a roaring fire and dreamt of hot cocoa and  adventures yet to come.
