Dottie's First Snow by Tibby Steedly

There was such a nice response from Red Bubbler friends on the photo of Dottie looking out at the snow, that I thought I’d upload this old one that we took seven years ago when Dottie experienced her first snow. She was just about a two months old and had just come back from an insane romp in the white stuff! Taken in Columbia, SC during a rare snowfall.

We found Dottie in 2002 by the Edisto River in South Carolina where she was starving and scared. She now sleeps on a memory foam mattress and gives us joy every day!

Dottie is a Border Collie mix. She is shorter and stockier than a full Border, but we don’t know what she’s mixed with. She’s a much-loved mutt!
