Chasing Snowballs - Greyhound Winter Games

Adele may be chasing pavements but it's fair to say when there's snow around, Mina is definitely fond of chasing snowballs!

I normally wrap the hounds up in their coats and keep walks fairly short when there's snow. Mina even gets to wear two coats; she tends to feel the cold very badly, so has an undercoat and a rather red (and aptly named) blizzard coat as her top coat.  However, no matter how cold Mina loves two things about the snow - snorting it, or catching snowballs.

The snow at the weekend meant we had a chance to play one of her favourite games... Catch the snowball! She loves it,  and hopefully the video shows this (Watch out for Jasper's nose making an appearance at the end)

We had great fun in the playing field and I was very careful with the snowballs I threw (I didn't want them to contain any hard lumps of ice). The snow was very powdery and ideal for a game of fetch.
