Cordelia loves being out in the snow. I think it taps into some deep, ancestral urges or something. She would stay outside forever (or at least until she got hungry, sooo, 5 mintues?) if we didn’t call her in. Even when we do call her in, it takes her a minute to decide if she wants to listen. On Christmas day it snowed all day and she went outside as often as possible.
And here, I am calling her in after the other dogs have already gone inside, she pauses for a several seconds, listening and then shows off her snow skills by running up hill, in fairly deep snow, on some pretty short legs. She was bounding like a bunny and you can see the happiness on her face.
Finally, Grandma let her in and she settled into a nap until the door opened again.
