Snow!

After much waiting, checking forecasts, and potential school closures, Suffolk eventually had a decent amount of snowfall- just in time for the weekend. This was just as exciting for Milo as it was for us- it was his first experience of the frozen white stuff- and he loved it!

After spending a great deal of time in the garden sniffing it out, we went on a super long walk to get him accustomed to the snow before it melted and life returned to normal (whatever normal is!).

His coat seemed to keep him warm, and even though he built a few clumps of ice up around his paws and beard, he trotted on regardless. With the snow covering up the ground, it was almost like a different landscape, and other dogs we met were sniffing the forest out like it sprung up yesterday. The paw prints and pee patches made it really fun to guess which animals had wandered through the forest throughout the night.

So how long will it last? Probably not long, but unless we're planning on moving to Alaska, we will have to enjoy it while it lasts. Milo's verdict on the snow? A big paws up!
