I’m not crying; it’s just snowing on my face.
Winter Storm Avery dropped a heavy blanket of snow on the northeastern United States on Thursday, coating New York City in an earliest-in-season record of six inches and other areas in as much as a full foot. As folks dig out their cars and shovel their driveways for the first time this season, it’s easy to get caught up in winter blues.
There is a simple remedy, however: puppies. While snow spells traffic and cold chores for humans, puppies are not bound by such responsibilities. When puppies see snow, they are filled with wonder, and their wonder infects us humans with joy.
Many people are taking their pups out for their first experience with snow, and their wagging tails are melting our hearts.
Some puppies are calm, and just enjoy being in the interesting new environment.
I interrupt this dreary, frigid Washington morning to bring you premium puppy content. Dolly saw her first snow this morning. Her ancestors were Swiss mountain dogs, so naturally she’s a big fan. ❄️ pic.twitter.com/MljPxkIbd3

Some pups get extra playful and drag their older doggy siblings along for some frosted play-wrestling.

Some puppies are so small that they have to bunny hop and flop through the snow, only to come up with flakes clinging to their belly fur and chins.

Some puppies just can’t stop chasing after and chomping at all the fluffy white stuff while their humans run to keep up.
The puppy I walk went out in the snow for the very first time (I’m fairly certain). Though he was timid at first, he LOVED IT and romped around chasing the snow our entire time together. pic.twitter.com/vJsc33I2jt

One young shepherd dog showed off the classic snow-appreciation strategy of sticking her nose right in a pile of snow. Her owner said she didn’t want to come back inside.

Of course, not all pups love the snow, but they still look extremely cute in their warm knit winter gear.
In case you're having a bad day, here's a video of my puppy's first time in the snow! 🐶🐕💗 pic.twitter.com/E0M1kWQUye

Once again, dogs remind us that the cold, cold world is full of beauty if you’re just willing to get a little goofy in it.
