This is Lainie, a Denver dog, who couldn't stop sticking their head in the snow. 

A confident pig, named Link walked outside their Lakewood home to take a look at the snow. 

This dog decided they needed to get their sled to shred away the day. 

Here is a cat who may not realize that they may not like the product of this snow later when it melts.
