Viral Video: Pooch Experiences Snow for the First Time!

By Robert Paul Reyes

Link is a 2-year-old rescue dog from sunny California that found a home far away -- in Canada, where there are a gazillion and one words for snow.


Link had never seen snow before. This video captures his reaction when he witnesses the first snow of the season; it`s fair to say it`s probably the happiest day of his young life.

Of course, after a month of almost daily snow, the only thing he may want to do in the snow is urinate on it.

But I can understand Link`s unbridled joy and exuberance, I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, and in the 42 years that I lived there I only saw it snow one time.

I now life in Central Virginia where it snows a few times each winter, and whenever the white stuff starts falling, I rush out and frolic in the snow.

There are many delightful puppies like Link just waiting to be adopted at your local animal shelter.
