Cowart's Common Room
There's something very interesting under there...

I'd love to know what it is! Probably voles or shrews - this picture is in the copse we've planted in the wet bit of the field. It's full of little tunnels and holes. The dogs go mad in the snow and then get their heads down and snuffle and dig away. They come back covered in snow balls and then gently melt all over the kitchen floor! I have to admit to really relishing these snow days, can't go anywhere, just time to relax and sit in front of the fire. Bliss.

Re:
Inthemud's Avatar My dogs do the same, digging under the shubbery. Rats in my case I think!

Re:
Withy Brook's Avatar All past dogs have done that! I think it was usually mouse/shrew/vole type animals but they never got one. Dogs do love snow, don't they? Unless they have short legs or are getting on in years.

Re:
Westerwitch's Avatar Laughing I have short legs too Twiglet . . . and my poor Arnie vanishes in the snow - I have to pick routes that have already been trodden down so that he can get through ok!

Re:
Dancing Dog's Avatar My labrador Henry used to adore the snow. We looked out of the upstairs window one day and saw a strange indentation in the snow. It was a large round circular spot with two tiny circles at the top, we finally figured out that it was Henry's bottom and his two front feet. LaughingLaughing

Salle de Bain's Avatar Zoober & Barnie get bogged down in the snow and end up with lots of little mini-snowball hanging from their legs. I then have to carry them home, one under each armRolling Eyes. Once deposited indoors we end up with a lake in front of the Aga....bless them.

They like to burrow in the snow too...usually around the bird feeders in case there's an odd peanut or two.
