Guys, we got SNOW! In the SOUTH!!!! In Charlotte, to be exact. You may or may not know how amazing (and rare) that this is, but it’s a big deal! I really big deal. We were so happy for our magical Southern snow day!
Southern Snow Day in Charlotte
It started snowing on Tuesday. Big, beautiful, fluffy snowflakes falling from the sky. I was like a kid in a candy store. I get just a LITTLE excited about snow. It’s okay though, because my enthusiasm is matched, if not well surpassed, by that of my dogs. All four of them had probably one of the best weeks of their lives this week.
Tuesday, we played in the snow on and off ALL day long. We went out to play in the morning as soon as it started to stick, and it was basically a revolving door all day. Jackets on, jackets off, in, out, in, out. It was perfect.
Boomer just wanted to play fetch (aka keep-away) with her Jolly ball all day.
Ringo just wanted to steal it from her.
And Roxie just wanted to zoom around the yard, endlessly!
Helo even got in on the snow action! Snow brings out his inner pup. Makes him run and play like mad… at least for a little while. He even chomped some snowballs! Made my heart so happy to see this old man having so much fun!
Instead of picking up his toy like a “normal” dog, Ringo needs to dig ALL the way down to the ground before he can pick his toy up. It did nothing to stop this from happening to his nose though… LOL
Walking in a Winter Wonderland…
Then in the afternoon, I took the girls to a little known local park to run and play in the gorgeous Winter Wonderland!
There’s something so magical about walking in fresh snow. So quiet, so peaceful, so serene!
These two ran their little hearts out in the fresh powder.
While constantly keeping an eye out for critters.
And racing up and down the trail as fast as they could!
Oh, and then they spent a good 20 minutes chasing mice in the tall, snowy grasses.
Don’t worry, despite their best efforts, no mice were hurt in the making of this adventure.
But what it was filled with was fun, freedom, and lots of love!
Man I love snow days!
Last one back to the truck is a rotten egg!
By the end of the day, the dogs were exhausted, the floor was littered with boots and jackets, and we were all blissfully happy… eager to get up and do it all again the next day. Stay tuned for more of our snowy adventures!

Do you get a lot of snow where you live? Do your dogs go as crazy as mine do when it comes? We’d love to hear from you. Leave us a comment below!
