What IS this stuff?!

Bourbon, who is 16 months old, has just experienced his first snow.  Yes, it's "only" about 3 inches, but it's been awhile since we've seen any.  Nice thing about southern snow is that it's here today, shuts everything down for 24 hours, then it's gone.  But the Boy's reaction to it this morning was hysterical.

First he took off, literally running circles around me.  
I think he was laughing.

Then he started farther away and made a beeline for me.
Glad he has good brakes and I didn't end up in the snow.

Seems he feels the same way about cameras that I do.  What a look!

His conclusion?
Snow tastes like....nothing!
But he kept checking, just in case.

I love his side eye!!! Most dogs love snow as long as it isn't -20!! (Or zero, in your case.) Did you make snow balls and throw them for Bourbon? My bullmastiff absolutely loved snow (again, as long it wasn't so cold she had to wear boots) and would always eat it when we went outside. Icicles were a great treat!

I'm glad the storm has passed for you. It has gotten more intense as it's moved north, with flooding and freezing at the same time.

Pon: I tried snowballs but it was simply too dry to stick. But since Bourbon was kicking up tsunamis of snow with every pass around me, I think he got the same effect. What's unusual for us is our high temps aren't getting much above freezing and it's going lower at night, so we have half melted snow turned to ice. Glad I don't have to be back to work until Monday!
