    Default snow troubles

    As we live in Finland we have quite a lot of snow during winter.
    It is usually nice but occasionally it´s a bit troublesome...

    Boy that gives new meaning to cleaning them up after a walk! Amazing picture -- do those 'bobbles' just gather on their coat? Does it happen only when the snow is a certain type (eg fresh snow) or every time you have them out in deep snow?

    That's just hilarious! We have had the snowballs on our dogs in the past, but nothing like that. Bet that took a while to melt off.

    Abbey gets snow clumps on her when it's the wet, sticky snow, but she's never had that many!!

    That would be a awesome Calendar picture for Winter months.
    I can't believe how many snowballs he got. Just needs a Black Top Hat,
    and a carrot and he will look like Frosty The Snowman.
    Adorable.

    karlin: you´re on the right track; it´s only fresh snow that gathers into balls when the temperature is near zero. Usually he wears a dress when the snow is like that, but this time I forgot. Eventually he had to be carried home because he was unable to walk and, boy, he was heavy. I had to rest quite a few times
