We are from Northwest Indiana, looking forward to the crazy winter Indiana weather!!!! Really...we love the snow, more Lola than myself.....I didn't think short hair dogs could love the cold and snow so much! We have snow play dates all the time, she has a favorite ball that we take out and usually it gets lost in the snow piles. I have to drag her in the house because I get too cold! I've noticed the cold weather bothers her leg (she broke it in two spots when she was 6 months old) more, but it doesn't stop her!
