How to make a Canadian dog happy...

Whilst it's a very springlike 17c at sea level in Cyprus, there was another fresh dump of snow in the Troodos last night, and one of our friends who works in the mountains did something he often does at this time of year, which is fill his truck with snow to bring down for the local kids!

A big mass of snow takes a surprising length of time to melt even at 17c (as we know well!) and whilst it stays frozen, the kids get to build snowmen and have snowball fights. Good cheap fun...

We met him as we were finishing our dog walk and instantly knew there was one member of our family who would be particularly excited to see the contents of his truck....

  1. What a lovely thing to do for the kids ( and dogs, lol ). My dogs love the snow as well, they never want to stop playing in it, eating it, throwing it around.

  2. This is something I have never ever seen before! Still very tempted by Cyprus as we are still very cold here in central Italy nothing like your balmy temperatures and huddling by our beloved log burning stove!
