This is a story from last summer, but it’s too cute to not share. When we got Mauja, we were living on the central coast of California. I absolutely loved the weather. Shorts and flip flops on Christmas? Score! Mauja did great in the weather, but I’m sure she was happy when the Air Force gave us orders to move to Montana. A much better climate for a pyr 🙂
Where we are stationed in Montana is about 3 hours from Glacier National Park. If you’re not familiar, it is beautiful. Definitely the most beautiful place I have ever been.
There is a road called “Going to the Sun Road” that takes you the entire way through the national park. Even though dogs aren’t allowed to go into the park, they can be in the cars and the areas surrounding the parking lot. Since we couldn’t find someone to take care of Mauja that day, we decided to bring her along. Little did she know she was in for a wonderful treat!
We visited Glacier a week after the park completely opened for the season, which was in July! They had just been able to remove all of the snow from the roads. It was warm enough for us to be in shorts, but there were still feet upon feet of snow. At one of the places we stopped, there was a nice snowy area. I figured I’d let Mauja out and let her experience her first snow!
She threw a royal pyr fit when it was time to get in the car again. We had an unexpected visitor and I knew Mauja would attempt to befriend him. That surely would not have been the best idea…
A few days later, we got a light dusting of snow at home. Mauja was LOVING it. She had the best time this past winter and I know she can’t wait for winter to come again. I, on the other hand, would like summer to stay for as long as possible!
Do your dogs like the snow?
