Shadowfax in the Snow
Shadowfax loves being outside, especially if her people are out there. When it's warm and pleasant she spends hours just lolling around on the grass, thoroughly sniffing every square inch of the the yard, or supervising us doing yard tasks.
In the winter though, it's a different story. She tries to fight it and stay out as long as possible, but she just can't manage it for very long.
If we're out shoveling snow Shadowfax tries to come out and help, but invariably after a couple of minutes just sits down and looks cold and pathetic. We have to herd her back inside to warm up, usually shutting her behind one of our many baby gates to keep her from getting back outside. This is OK with her as she's content to supervise from the window as well.
