Hey all! I've been really busy trying to understand snow and weather here in Montreal. We've had to brave some really, really cold weather, like the day it was -27C outside. I'm well-equipped with a nice winter coat and some boots, which I hate, but mom & dad insist I should wear them when it's very cold.
Then there's also the snow. We've had a few winter storms here, and snow has piled up pretty high. I was out chasing squirrels the other day but one has to be very careful: I suddenly found myself up to my withers in snow! that means about 70 cm of snow pile-up. So to move around I have to jump like a rabbit, which mom & dad say is pretty fun for a dog my size.
Mathias, poor thing, being so small, basically just floats on the snow, and also has to jump like a hare to move around. Still he's so crazy and when playing with his ball, insists on doing the "pounce", where he runs really fast, then just before getting to the ball, jumps up in the air and lands with all his weight on the ball. This amuses mom, dad & myself to no end!
All in all it's been really fun playing in the snow, but it's also tiring and we come home ready for a cozy nap.
Winter is on its way out, I'm sure we'll miss the snow but after 4 months it'll be good to have some actual ground under my paws!
See ya soon!

To be at your withers, that's a lot of snow!
I'm so glad that you're having fun.
