The flakes have started falling in Northern New England! I go through the same roller coaster of emotions every year. The first snow of the season is so pretty and exciting. But after a few weeks I start to get agitated. I am paler than Casper, my legs are drier than a lizard's and I'm COLD. Like "Kate Winslet in the Titanic" cold.

Best movie ever. But I digress!

You know what gives me a burst of joy during these winter months? Watching animals experience snow. Their pure elation and excitement is contagious and it almost makes me want to go roll around in the snow myself. Almost.

Meet Cinnamon and Grace

They live at the Maine State Society for the Protection of Animals in Windham, Maine. According to their Facebook page, the MSSPA houses horses who have suffered from abuse or neglect and have been seized by Maine law enforcement agents. This would be a fantastic organization to donate to for the upcoming #BettyWhiteChallenge.

But back to Cinnamon and Grace. These two gorgeous creatures were thrilled about the recent snowfall and that is an understatement. Just look at them living their best lives:

Here are some dogs that love the snow that also made me smile...
