Golden retrievers like the snow and cold, but they have a design flaw that will forever prevent them from being true arctic dog.
The fur that grows on the webbing between their toes collects snow. If a dog has been running for several miles, the snow actually builds up into very compact little ice balls.
And then the dog dog has to stop and chew them out of their fur.
Or you can come along and pluck them out.
Miley only did the former for about ten seconds– just enough for a photo– and then I plucked them out.
