Fiona was born May 23. She has not seen snow. Don't know if she ever will. She likes chasing the hose water, sprinklers, and digging water in her doggie pool. I cannot keep her out of mud puddles. She lays down in it. But use the hose to spray the mud off of here is torture.

Luckily, Grim doesn't know they're the same thing in different forms! His breeder told me he avoided the hose. When I bathed him, he was extremely vocal, which went from complaining to obviously pissed pretty fast. He carried on the entire time! When we got the first little snow, he ignored it. I was kind of disappointed, because I thought he'd have some reaction. When we got the 'big snow' on the day after Christmas, he acted like a bucking bronco on crack. I was laughing so much it was insane. Now he wants to go out and play in the snow often!

Hunter was born in May, didn't really like water until the summer after his first winter. He absolutely LOVES snow and water now, always loved snow.

Echo LOVED snow always... HATED water until recently. Gradually we got him accustomed to crossing streams, etc while hiking and now he won't stay away from water. When we moved to Cape Cod a year ago he was petrified of the water, now he wades in and swims around without chasing anything, etc

Stella loves the hose! And by the end of the summer she was swimming in our pool and in the river. She is loving the snow too! Last winter was not very snowy here so today was really her first full out day in the snow. Loved running in it and digging it. And oh what fun to chase the grandkids on the sled! Now I just need to train her to pull the sled up the hill

Mine has screamed during the three baths I have given him. I thought someone might call the human society on us based on the noise Hope he grows out of it. I tried food etc but the same rusult ,once the water starts touching him from the hose, you would think we were spraying acid on him. Some hope during the last bath he gave up towards the end and just sat still whining, which is better than screaming and jumping.

Joey loves to attack the hose while it's spraying; not crazy about being sprayed with one.

He was born in November.
