Snow shovelling

Just wondering if I'm the exception when it comes to snow shovelling. I have to shovel as much snow for Molly as I do for the rest of my property. Today's our first real snowfall wet and heavy. I spent half an hour doing the deck and about 1oo square feet of lawn. The deck is most of the work ,just so that she can reach the lawn to do her business. The front is another half hour doing the driveway and the sidewalk. Hope I'm not the only one who goes to these lengths. No laughing from the people in Florida Georgia California etc.

Hah! You're definitely not the only one. Before I do any shoveling of the driveway I shovel a track from the door all the way through the lawn so Cody & Tess can still get to their favorite spots and then back to the house without getting their poor little feet too cold. Wish I could say someone did the same for me!!!

When we moved to Texas my husband left his snow shovels back up north. Last year we got several of inches of snow here--it was very unusual and the good thing was that it only lasted a couple of days. But my husband had to "shovel" a path in the back yard for the dogs so he used a broom and kept going outside to stay on top of the snow fall. These low to the ground pups need some extra help when they get out in the snow!

Dave, I've heard Costa Rica is beautiful. . . .

Ok, I'm going to have to post pictures of last years snow. We got over 2 feet and I had to shovel my deck, and a complete maze in the yard. Stand by for pictures later tonight, they are on my other computer upstairs.

Nancy that would be nice, I'm sick of winter already , and it hasn't even begun. Hope you don't get any abnormal weather this year. Molly loves it she races around in it . Yeah that's what we get for having these vertically challenged dogs. LOL .

Hand raised here too. I always have to make sure they have a path to walk, which last winter was a nightmare with snow storm after snow storm. Made me want to move to a warm climate.

Well...Whimsy is pee pad trained so I don't have to deal with the weather ( or the coyotes) at all.

Shoveling to the PeePee Palace!

Okay, I'll admit we shovel for our dogs too. We make a huge figure 8 track for them to chase around and shovel out 4 little squares off from the trail that we call the PeePee Palace.... They don't eliminate in their track area....they go to one of the "palaces" to unload!

DH shoveling the path with help from Daisy - and Daisy peeking over the top of the figure 8 run.....

This year - I bought DH one of the Toro Power Shovels.....
