Snow can be a pain, shoveling it off the driveway, or layering on clothes to simply walk outside. Despite all of the adult struggles associated with snow, it’s a magical occurrence that is quite exciting to witness, especially for the very first time.
I still remember the moment I saw snow for the first time. Growing up in Southern California sheltered me from snow, and so when I first witnessed a blanket of soft, white, and oh so cold snow I was SO excited.
Animals tend to get even more excited about the little things in life than humans, so you can only imagine how amped your pet feels the first time he or she encounters snow. These 22 adorable animals are just jazzed about the change in weather. Check out the pawty these cuties are throwing to celebrate their first time playing in snow.
