My dog Gifford loves snowball fights, but he gets a little distracted by the tasty white stuff.

When I got home from work on Monday, Gifford was dying to go outside. He sat on the floor and whined until we put on boots and coats, and headed outside with him. After a quick little run, my husband, Jim, started throwing snowballs, one of Gifford's favorite snow-day games.

But there's one problem. Well, two, really. He has no hands and so he can't throw the snowballs back. And he loves the way they taste, so he catches as many as he can in his mouth and chomps them down.

I couldn't help taking a quick little video, to show off how handsome my dog is, and how overjoyed he is with the new snow. I love my big, goofy mutt!
