Late winter snowstorms are the worst. I lay the blame firmly at the feet of all those groundhogs that emerged from their warm underground burrows, prophesying six additional winter weeks. We get into February and hope that the worst is behind us, only to be buried under more snow. Cheer up! I come bearing gifts of adorable Boston Terrier puppy pictures to warm the cockles of your heart!
I grew up in Georgia and currently live in North Carolina. The story is the same in both states: Folks go into panic mode at the mere mention of flurries. The race is on to get all the bread and eggs from the grocery stores. Roads are immediate hazards, people forget how to drive, and it’s generally chaos. These Boston Terrier puppies are operating on my level. If I can’t step outside my door without slipping and falling, I’m staying under the covers.
Here’s another Boston Terrier who’s got the right idea. A nice pillow to lay his head on and a warm blanket are far preferable to battling traffic or the elements. You’ve just looked out the window, and the snow is coming down harder than ever. Boston Terriers don’t have to go to work or school, so sleep on, baby puppies!
No matter how resolutely we try to ignore all the snow and ice that have accumulated just beyond our doors, I suppose even the most reticent among us must eventually get up and face the day. This Boston Terrier puppy is doubly protected, nestled among quilts in the soft dog bed. Undaunted, our next few Boston Terrier puppies are determined to find activities to engage their interest!
Here is a baby Boston Terrier puppy who has crept from the dog bed and is now ready to play. Can you deny these Boston Terrier puppies a little bit of fun on a cold day? How about a game of fetch with the puppy’s favorite toy? Look at the pleasant bulge of those pleading eyes! The gentle curl to the ears! At the very least, how can you possibly resist rubbing her tiny pink tummy?
As we all know, dogs are curious to taste all of life’s delights. Even with plenty of toys, dog puzzle treats, and chew sticks scattered around the living room, the things that Boston Terrier puppies do when they’re bored can be inexplicable. There’s no accounting for taste with Boston Terriers. Meet Frankie. His snow day activity of choice is licking the windows. Does the condensation taste good, buddy?
Titan is a brindle Boston Terrier puppy. This is his first experience with snow. He’s been patient, sleeping in as long as you did. He amused himself with a squeak toy in the laundry room, but it’s just not enough! You dread trading your warm, dry couch for cold, wet socks, but the indomitable spirit of Boston Terrier puppies will not be contained!
Time to suit up and see what all the fuss is about. You pull on a couple of pairs of pants, a sweater, and as many socks as your shoes will permit. This Boston Terrier puppy has a fashionable winter coat that rarely gets used, so this is the perfect opportunity to break it in. After all that pleading to see the snow, this is a typically unamused reaction.
As you may know, here in North Carolina, what constitutes a winter weather “emergency” is vastly different than in other areas of the country. This is Jack, a North Carolinian Boston Terrier who is thrilled to see any snow at all. The funniest and simultaneously the least amusing thing about snow, ice, and sleet here is that even this dusting is sufficient to paralyze the entire state.
During 2015’s first North Carolina snowstorm, schools in my area were shut down for a solid week. Total snowfall? Less than three inches. We’re almost completely unprepared for that kind of weather mischief here. Boston Terrier puppies, on the other hand, just want to get outside and have fun, no matter the weather. Meet Quilby, a Boston Terrier puppy who’s had quite enough after about 15 minutes.
The most important thing about snow storms in the late part of winter is the “late” part. The calendar says that spring is only weeks away, despite all appearances. These Boston Terrier puppies are ready to embrace the warmth. Imagine jumping in the car with a crew of mischievous Boston Terrier puppies! It won’t be much longer before you can roll down the window and feel the breeze without losing all sensation in your fingers.
In Boston and other Northeastern and Midwestern cities, of course, they’re completely prepared for sudden and drastic inclement winter weather. Snowpocalpyse now? Handled. Ice storm in the night? Everyone’s getting to work and school safely in the morning. Here in the South, it’s a different story altogether. How are you and your dogs enduring the last throes of winter?
