Pit Bull Terriers aren't snow dogs. That would be breeds like the Saint Bernard, Great Pyrenees, and Newfoundland. Pit bulls like to soak up the sun. They are one of the few breeds that will choose sun over shade.
So when yesterday's surprise snow storm deposited four inches of pretty powder on northeast Alabama, Bo (our hound/pit mix) didn't want to go outside to potty. In fact, when I opened the door, he turned tail and tried to slink away. I had to literally SHOVE seventy-five pounds of dog out the door because he and Moxie are too big to do their business inside the house.
Bo did not like snow.
But you know what? Once he got across the deck and down the steps, he decided it wasn't so bad after all.
And on his 3rd, 4th, and 5th times to go out yesterday, he ran right out the back door and positively frolicked, running willy-nilly around the yard like a crazy dog, jumping on Moxie in play, and stealing her tennis ball.
Moxie would do her business and come back to the door. But Bo made several circuits of the fence perimeter, making sure no wild animals, stray cats, or unauthorized humans had entered the property.
So I suppose Bo and snow do mix.
