Yes, this is exactly the same snow as I stood in yesterday, sinking in up to above my knees. It's probably 3 feet or more deep. But gradually it forms a fairly hard crust on the top and a 15 lb puppy can easily run on the surface. Not so a person, who sinks in and flounders about,, breaking through the top and losing balance on the lumpy hard layers of ice and snow beneath. I was not having nearly as much fun as she was. The next times I went out with her today (without the camera) I strapped on my snowshoes and I, too, was walking across the top of the snow!
Joni is 12 weeks old tomorrow. Have a great weekend everyone! I hope you have as much fun as a puppy running across the snow on a lovely winter's day.
