Up her in WV we have about 4 inches of snow...

If I take Boom out to potty (God I wish I would have potty trained him on pads) he has this need to play in in for 20 mins before he poos....

Am I the only one that suffers this?

The snows up to his shoulders... and he lays in it.. and rolls in it.. and sticks his head down into it and is a wet mess when he comes back in.

Lexi loved the snow the first time we went out.

For the past week or so she has been really bad about going to the bathroom outside. She just sniffs around and eats the snow. We could be outside for 20 minutes and she won't go. Within 10 minutes of going in she will have a accident. This morning when I was getting ready she peed an inch from my foot!

Flurry loves the snow he loves to run in it hop in and roll around making snow angels. He eats it, sniffs it and sneezes, he has so much fun in it. He has a doggie door so he runs in and out of it all day long. He never tires of it. I just make sure I keep his blankies dry and the house warm for him. He's a happy puppy! My litlle snow bunny hoping along making me laugh, the only one who may pee is me from laughing so hard watching him. He goes to the corner of the yard to take care of his business, even with the snow, I make a little clearing in his favorite spot. Although I think he'd go in it if it were up to his ears.

Is she shivering, maybe it is too cold for her. I put a jacket on Flurry if it is really cold. Maybe if you clear a little area where she likes to go. Or try training her to go on the wee wee pads, I used to put them where Flurry had an accident, lol he had a lot of accidents in the beginning we had wee wee pads everywhere.His wee wee box he used to sleep in even though we bought him a gorgeous bed. I actually made a pillow to fit his wee wee box for his bed. We had to put off getting the new carpet until we could trust him not to pee or poop on the rug. He got the idea with a lot of patience and love. The doggie door was the best investment he goes outside all the time now.

No the cold doesn't seem to bother her. I have a coat I put on her when it is really cold. There are a couple areas that have been cleaned for the dogs in my building to go in. Before this problem started she was fine with going out. Not sure what changed.

Last night she kept trying to get me to take her outside but when we did go outside she wouldn't do anything.

I'm so ready for spring!

Me too, I love to garden. I love the comfortable weather and the smell of flowers just starting to bloom. The first butterfly and lady bug.
I love your photo album, Flurry's album is on yahoo I like it because it is free and my relatives can order prints of whatever they like right there online. I can order prints and send them to a relative or to my home. And it's free, lol. I just pay for photo's if I order.
