This is what happens when you are a wire haired dachshund and you go out in the snow. Especially that good packing snow. It makes instant snowballs on her under carriage. Then when I want to let her in, I don't want her taking all that in the house with her. I was going to do a little shoveling and I wanted brush the snow off her and let her in. No can do. The snow is now incorporated into her curly fur. Try my best to pull it off her, not really doing it either. Did the best I could, let her in. Hopefully she won't go lay on my pillow.
