Of course, the kids in our building had already been out, and they made a snowman. That startled Louise a little - she had to growl at it and approach slowly, until she discovered the grapes in the snow that they used for the 'eyes'. Since the snowman smelled like food, he was okay.
One of the things that I noticed was that not everybody shovels the snow off the sidewalk in front of their house. We would walk along and note that some would take extra care to completely clean off the sidewalk, while others would barely uncover a path.
Then there were those who would shovel the driveway, but not the sidewalk, even though the neighbors on both sides had already cleaned off theirs. Of course, Louise didn't mind. She would tromp through watever snow was in her path, although she still tries to avoid puddles.
For the sweater fans out there, (you know who you are) you will note that she was wearing one of the first sweaters we got for Louise. It wasn't really that cold out, but we put it on her mostly because it's easier to clean her up after the walk is done. Simply remove sweater and wipe down paws. Doggie bath is optional.
