Nevermind the underwater diving dogs. Yeah, that's pretty awesome. But there are few things cuter than a snowdog in action. There are also few things cuter than a dog who doesn't like the snow that is attempting to do his or her "business" quickly and get back inside. Your pet is "wild" again, at one with nature, surviving the pile-up by leaping joyfully through it all. We want your video clips of dogs in the snow. Chances are, we won't find many felines who are enjoying the storm, but if so, we welcome those, too. Heck, if you've got a potbellied pig or a horse who is out in the snow, bring it on.
