Here is a recent photo of our snow dog. She absolutely loves the cold weather. She rings her door bell (we trained her to ring a bell to go outside, or rather she trained us to get up when she rings the bell by the door) goes out side and plops down on the nearest snow pile. Her coat is so thick and well insulating that if it is snowing, it will accumulate on her. I have to say winter is the best time of the year to own this kind of dog because there is no mud and even though the snow does melt and makes things a little wet around the house, it is nothing like after she has been swimming. Plus, she is at her happiest.
