'fraidy dog

We got about 5" of snow last night, topped by freezing rain. Took my pug out this am, after making him wait while I shoveled off the deck and ramp, but it was still slick. He ran out the door, slid halfway down the ramp, and looked up at me with terror in his eyes. He peed off the side of the ramp and very gingerly tried to walk back up. Poor little guy, he was scared to death!

Hopefully he wasn't too scared and still did what he was out there for . Our Weimaraner loves to run thru and nose-dive into fresh fallen snow, something she has had the opportunity to do lots of this winter.

I'm a little north of you, so I got the same weather you did, last night. I can understand your pug's attitude cause when I take an unexpected slide on the ice....I'm terrified also!!!

My neighbors always laugh at me cause I shovel paths in the lawn area for the dogs, so they can get a good 'scent' to help with pottying. Seems to work.

Funny, our Weimie hates being out in the snow. Then again, she's afraid of water.

Yeah, that's right. A bird dog with a short, oily coat and webbed feet perfect for being in the water, is afraid of water.

My step sons have a couple of dogs....youngest has a very small schnauzer mix, oldest has a huge mastiff mix. The mastiff is a 'fraidy cat, and when any small thing spooks him he runs to hide behind the tiny dog.

It's hilarious to watch.
