I guess you could bring a scoopfull in and plop it down on a plate or something of that nature to see what they do with it. My guess is theyll enjoy licking and pawing in it until it gets too cold on their lil toes.
wolfy went outside with me a bunch of times when it was snowing. i wore 2 hoodies and a coat with a hood on it so he'd be all covered and warm...and now that its gotten extremely cold out he stays in the house. he sniffed the snow when i picked up a handfull, and a snowflake landed on his face and melted and then he was content to stay in my hood like i told him to.
