Back in December, my husband and I decided to take an impromptu visit to Big Bear with Louie. It's about a 2 hour drive from Los Angeles -- perfect for a short getaway. We have been making an informal bucket list for Louie and having her experience snow has been one of them. From looking at photos of other beagles on Instagram, we thought she'd have tons of fun. But to be honest, I don't think she enjoyed running around in the snow very much -- especially since it was the icy, slick kind and not the fluffy, soft kind of snow that day.
Nevertheless, it was an adventure for the three of us! We actually didn't stay very long because it was so crowded that day and parking was very difficult to find. Next time, we'll plan ahead and book a small cottage and spend a weekend there. Maybe Louie will warm up to the snow next time around.
