Snowy Savvy

After a few very cold and windy days we finally got more snow, and lots of it: about 18 inches as of this morning. After being cooped up in the house during the really low temperatures, Savvy was ecstatic to take a walk with me today during the 20 degree "heat wave". He adores deep snow, and we both wallowed around in it like puppies.
I've decided to buy him a set of dog booties because the past below zero days have been rough on him. He can only spend about 10 minutes in these temps before he starts holding up his poor freezing feet. Therefore we can't exercise properly and end up driving eachother crazy indoors. Last November I tried to solve this problem by buying a huge treadmill for him to run on, but that idea didn't take into account my puppy's eccentricities, namely the fact that he's become scared to death of the thing. We're both just going to have to put on more clothes and brave the cold...

    Hi Paula,

    I'm very jealous of the snow...again! We just got our first snowfall of the year, but only got about 6 inches. I just need to get the sleds fired up and hit the trails. Savage looks good in the snow! When will he be snowmobiling this year!

    He looks really cute!!
    Shame we don´t have snow around us. I bet my Weims would love it. Perhaps not so much Gucci, but surelly Calvin would!

    Please, send same snow to Portugal!!

    We love the snow too, we just do not get any. That is supposed to change tonight hopefully.

    Of all Savy's adult pics I think this one is the best! The classic dignity of the Great Dane personified! :)

    Hi Savage! I saw you on the Dogs with Blogs blog list... and had to come say HI! I am a little naked boy, but my girl LOVES LOVES LOVES big doggins and wants to one day have a Dane of her own, so she's sitting here drooling at your handsomeness. :-) Nice to meet you! (I'll probably visit frequently... as I mentioned, my girl thinks you're *almost* more handsome that ME!)
