When the temperature is hanging around the freezing point it may be in prime condition for building a snowman, but it sure makes dog maintenance more of a hassle. Kona loves to romp around in the snow, but the snow clings to the fur on her legs then begins to build snowballs there. Every time she goes outside (many times a day) when we get her back into the house, we have to march her into the shower and melt all of her snowballs with warm water. Luckily, she doesn’t mind and goes into the shower stall willingly.
When the temperature is colder her snowball manufacturing ceases.
