10 Pets Who Love Snow Days More Than You Ever Did

Winter’s not over yet, folks. More snow days are likely on the way — and these pets just can’t wait for more of the white stuff.

Remember when you were a kid, and the words “snow day” were like a gift from the gods?

You’d wake up early and roll over in bed, hoping against hope that when you opened the window, you’d see just enough snow to cancel school. There was no joy like that joy.

Of course, now that we are adults, the feeling we get when we hear “snow day” is just a bit different. Or, more accurately, a lot different.

But there’s a way to reclaim that inner child’s joy when it comes to snow. No matter their age, these 10 pets love the snow — and they’re not shy about showing it. Take a look and see if you can dig up a memory or two from those better days.

1. This British shorthair looks like she’s daring someone to throw a snowball in her direction. I wouldn’t.

2. Best thing about snow days? Doggy play dates! Good luck to their humans getting them to come inside any time soon.

3. Even little piggies love the first snowfall of the season … or maybe she’s just reacting to the cold? Either way, she looks pretty happy.

4. Everyone says you’re not supposed to eat the snow, but what do they know?
