Well we finally made it to 35 degrees and sunny here in the land of ice and snow so Kelly and I had the pups out for two 20 - 30 minute outside play times and tonight Blitzens ears, head and neck are bright pink!!! She doesn't appear uncomfortable.....just pink 8O  I knew she would need sunscreen in the summer but guess the sun reflecting off the snow was too much for her. Any other whitey owners run into this?????
On a brighter note, both Donner and Blitzen are snoozing the night away. They've been cooped up by the crappy weather so a day of sun and fun makes for a quiet night for us  :lol:

Thanks for the reply. Knew we'd have to stock up on sunscreen, just didn't think about the snow reflection.....duh :doh:  As far as her neck goes, she's got some chunky monkey rolls on her neck :oops: and the rolls are pink.Hopefully by tomorrow all will be well.  :D

Sorry Lori, I had to laugh at the "chunky monkey" comment...You know I had never thought about snow either, but you are right, it's just as easy to burn when you are on snow, poor Blitz...Hoping the "pinkie girl" looks better tmw

Well I have a white dog but it's not my boxer.  It is my furry Bichon.  He has issues from the snow also.  I had to snowblow the backyard because his 7 inch legs and the 18 inch's of snow didn't calculate.  Poor guy had to potty on the porch.  He now has plenty of leg room.

I really never thought about the snow and sunburn, but I know skiiers can get sunburned so it makes sense.  Hope she is back to herself soon.
