Don't go chasing snowballs.

Zoltan the Magnificent, aka Zoli, enjoys the snow—and plenty of compliments—in Ballard.

Seattle, supposedly, has more dogs per capita than any city in the world. And despite our northerly latitude, most of them rarely get to experience the joy of romping through snowdrifts and wearing tiny booties (alright, "joy" might be a little strong for that last one). So when this weekend's storm brought us our snowiest day in over half a century, humans weren't the only ones who reveled. Here are some adorable Seattle snow dog moments.

Oatmeal had to defend her innocence on the record.


Bodhi the Bernese Mountain dog—aka the best thing to come out of 2020—lapped up his first snow in West Seattle. 


Seattle's foremost influencer, Sir Charles Barkley, took the opportunity for a photo shoot in his finest cold weather duds. Sartorially struggling Seattleites, take note.


Even the most dignified breeds look a little silly covered in snowflakes.
