Tyler and Milly’s love for snow

Outer Banks got a good dose of snow and ice. Milly being the mountain dog she is from Jackson WY has a great history with snow. Tyler used to ski in knee deep powder with Milly chasing her down the mountain. But I really think Milly may have kinda forgotten about snow since she hadn’t seen any in awhile. Needless to say it didn’t take long to remember. She was running around and playing like a kid today. Warmed my heart.
