The verdict is in, Niko loves snow. We had a good snowstorm that covered the yard. When I took him outside for the first time, he stayed on the pavement and sniffed the snow out to test the "waters." I walked on the snow and tugged on him a little. He took the leap and hopped around the yard. He buried his face in the snow and acted very silly. His motions resembled a bunny hopping around.
