Growing up in Pittsburgh, PA and the Hubbs growing up in Monument Valley, AZ, we're not strangers to cold. We know how to shovel, bundle up, and drive in it. Annie and Paul, as far as we know, were born in Virginia and have only seen bits and pieces of the white fluffy stuff. Just enough to be a pain, but not enough to do stuff with.
We got about an inch and a half of snow yesterday, and below freezing temps today. Grand total, our morning walk went for about 30 yards before Paul decided he had had enough. The turn around came when he started refusing to put his front right paw in the snow. In the 20 yards back to the front door, Paul alternated the "paw too cold to put on the ground" move with his front left before limping with both paws (interesting to watch, good for background knowledge) into the house.
