Title: Snow day (more like minute) with Roxie
Post by: TannerW on November 30, 2006, 10:40:13 pm
Snow only comes a few times a year around here, and Roxie always gets excited - until she ventures off of the front porch and slides her skinny little bones deep into the cold white stuff.  Sadness inevitably ensues...

"Help me, I'm frozen."

"Can we go back inside now?"

"Please?"

"I don't care if we've only been out here for 45 seconds."

"Finally!"

Hehe...  Might try and get some more shots in the FIRST 15 seconds, if we go out again today.

Oh my goodness Roxie is way too cute, very mean of you to make her stay outside ~ very mean ~ just so you can get some very cute pics ~ torture I'm sure  ;D ;) My old no coat(Coonhound) would make the same face she hated the snow and cold, does Roxie come in and park her butt by a heater, or chatter her teeth? I'll trade you some of our never ending RAIN and MUD for some crisp clean snow.

She came in and acted like it was nothing; then barked at me until I fed her, as she always does.  Outside, though, she was shaking like a leaf.  Maybe the "sad, pathetic" look was just a ploy to get me back inside to feed her. ;)

I just wish I could've captured the first moment that she went barreling out into the snow, when she obviously still thought the idea would be "fun".  Her expression changed before I could even get my camera turned on.

P.S. I'll trade your rain and mud for our tornadoes and humidity (and, rarely, snow) any day of the week.

Roxie is too cute!  You're in Oklahoma too!  We're in the northeastern part of the state and got a little snow...about 3 inches or so.   :)

Very cute pics!  Roxie is very, pretty. Good thing you don't get too much snow if she isn't a huge fan of it.  Keep on posting pics of your pupper.

I'm surprised you didn't get more snow, Jess.  I'm in south Tulsa and I got 6" throughout (not including the bottom layer of ice) - with as much as 28" on the snow drifts.

Pitas - Roxie's gonna have to find a way deal with it. ;) The temperature's not supposed to get above freezing until Monday, so the snow's here for at least the length of the weekend.

Jack's mom - I wish I had video, because the pictures really don't do it justice.  She did the snow dance for about 10 seconds; then firmly planted her butt on the ground (just in time for me to get my camera on).  From that point on, there was absolutely nothing I could do or say to get her to move away from the house.

Thanks for the compliments, all.  I'll treat Roxie to some extra time outside. ;D

Roxie would love Hawaii just as much as I would.  During warm weather, she wants to be outside the entire day.  Add snow into the picture, and she's instantly miserable. 

Aside from being a short-haired dog, I guess her paws are just extra sensitive to the white stuff.  I'm getting ready to take her back out in it though. 

Look for more sad pictures soon. :P

Sorry DaneInsaneLiz, but you might want to look away.  More jealousy ahead. ;)

Roxie was smarter this time and kept to the melted areas at first.

...did the infamous snow dance for a little while...

(http://members.cox.net/tnrworsham/roxiesnow3.jpg)
...and then she went absolutely spastic.

She really nutted out after this, running head first into a 2' snow drift, but unfortunately my memory card was filled since I'd forgotten to empty it earlier this morning. 

Oh well, there's always tomorrow. :)

Those are so funny.  What a total goof ball.  The first shots were great and the second bunch are AWESOME.  I'm in Houston so we never get snow.  I do wonder though how Gracie would act in the snow.

Roxie's a doberman, which is why I posted this in the 'Doberman Pictures' forum. ;D Hehe. 

And thanks for the compliments.  I'll pass it on in the way of a treat.

Oh My Goodness what a change from the first set of pics to the second ;D I love the last pic of the second group with her crazy wild wind blown ears ~ she looks awesome and having sooo much fun this time.

Yeah, Rox definitely enjoyed the second trip out a lot more.  Maybe it's because she knew what to expect; maybe it's because the temperature had risen to a balmy 27 degrees.  Who knows? :)

Dahlie - It's a rarity nowadays to see a completely au naturale dobe like Roxie is.  Although, sometimes, I wish I would have chopped off that long tail of hers - like when she hits me in the face with it or accidentally knocks everything off of a table. 

It is worth it, though, to see the full effect when she 'breakdances' in the living room.  She moans, groans, and 'thwacks' her fat tail against the carpet while throwing her arms and legs up into the air.  It's hilarious. ;D

My old Dalmatian , Dotty , loved snow. She would run and roll and play in it. If she was nice and clean sometimes in the distance all you could see was black spots moving through the air  :D :D
