Diesel’s First Snow

Hello all!  We had our first snow of the winter last week and it was quite the eventful day for our little guy.  It starting snow mid-morning last Monday, but it wasn’t sticking.  I came home during my lunch break to play with Diesel for a bit and he was VERY apprehensive about going potty outside when there was white stuff falling on him.  After a while though, he realized that if you gotta go, you gotta go, so he did his business and then ran inside. 

That evening it started to stick and we got a few inches throughout the night.  When morning came and it was time to go potty again, Diesel was very confused about the cold, white stuff that covered everything.  However, it didn’t take him long to realize that it was kinda fun to play in and that it was just like ice! (NOTE: When he was a puppy and teething, we gave him ice cubes to chew on, in order to numb his mouth.  He still loves ice and we cannot get ice out of the fridge without him running up and begging for a piece.)  Soon enough, a monster was born and he’d want to go outside just to run around, lay down in and eat the snow…instead of potty.  Awesome.  Then, when we could finally get him inside, he’d track snow into the house and we’d have little puddles of water on the tile, shortly afterwards.  Great.  Luckily for us though, the snow has all melted and now he’s back to actually going potty when he’s outside, not just being a schmuck and running around in the snow.  I did manage to get a couple of cute pictures though, so here we go!



What’s this stuff on my face?


Don’t eat the yellow snow, Diesel.


Mmm, plants taste even better with snow on them!
