Although the Mi-ki dog breed is small, they still enjoy having big fun in the snow. Our dogs are used to playing outdoors and the wintertime is no exception.
Keep in mind that Mi-kis do tend to collect snowballs on their fur, which can become painful, and it isn’t exactly the best for their coats. We do have a collection of snowsuits from BaxterBoo that they can wear, but they seem to enjoy themselves the most when they’re able to run free and unencumbered.
The great thing about Colorado is that it can be sunny and downright warm with the snow on the ground. There’s nothing like exercise and sun to refresh the spirit for dogs and humans alike. Still, we keep our play sessions fairly brief and rinse off the worst of the snowballs when we come inside. We don’t have any carpet, and a quick mop makes everything fresh again.
As you can see by these photos, the fun we have in the snow far outweighs the inconvenience of dripping dogs and a group grooming session! We’ll just call them “snow baths.”
Moses’ fun snow day
Moses was feeling especially frisky as he’d had his bath in anticipation of getting his anesthesia-free tooth cleaning done. Moses weighs 5.5 pounds and has been paired with both Evie and Rayne for our Spring 2019 Mi-ki litters.
Royal T’s Endearing Eden is out of Savannah and Sinbad. She has just passed all of her health clearances and will be hopefully gracing us with chocolates and potentially smooth-face Mi-ki puppies in the future.
Royal T’s Irresistible Isabelle is growing up! At 4 months and nearly 3 pounds, she’s strong, sweet, brave, and thinks she’s big. We’re looking forward to putting her in the show ring with her perky, showy personality. She’s out of Moses and Truffle.
Royal T’s Brilliant Brighton LOVES playing in the snow. Sadly, her fur also gets the most snowballs of everyone. She could care less, though. Brighton is our first “bred by” UKC champion. We hope she’ll have her first litter this summer. She’s out of Moses and Evie.
Brumby’s Run Baron von Royal T is making his debut as a sire soon. He’s been paired with our chocolate girl Savannah, and we’re hopeful for our first chocolate Mi-kis puppies this March! Baron, Brighton, and Truffle are great buddies, as you can see.
Savannah is expecting the first week of March. Did we mention we could be getting our first chocolates? Yep, we’re very excited! We’re so excited, we don’t even care that she doesn’t care about her crazy hair!
