Golden Retriever’s Reaction To Snow Will Melt Your Heart

Imagine spending nearly all your life without having ever seen snow. It’s a different experience watching the snow fall in movies and television shows. It’s not the same as stepping outside and feeling fresh snowflakes land softly on your face.

But for Archer, a one-year-old Golden Retriever, he had never seen snow until this winter season. His happy reaction will guarantee to put a smile on your face.

Puppy’s First Snow

Dog owners know firsthand that dogs get excited over the simplest events. Whether it’s a guest visiting the home, a new bone, or playing fetch, dogs are happy to be with their owners.

So, when Archer was introduced to his first snowfall, he was absolutely delighted. When the snowflakes fell from the sky, the Golden Retriever puppy tried his best to catch a few flakes on his tongue. He might have learned this trick from his owner, or maybe it came to him naturally, but we can all agree Archer was excited.

Recording The Experience

Archer’s owner knew this was a special event. After all, you only experience your first snowfall once. The magic can’t be repeated. His owner recorded the event on camera and uploaded it to the dog’s personal Instagram account (yes, dogs have Instagram accounts), and it quickly became a viral video.

Archer managed to catch a few snowflakes, but then he ran off for his usual run. He couldn’t have been happier to be running in the snow.

Catching A Snowball

Archer’s owner was determined to document the entire experience. The next day brought even more snow. The grass was now covered in fluffy white snowflakes, which, of course, Archer loved. His owner recorded and uploaded another video on Archer’s Instagram.

As seen in the video, Archer’s owner threw a snowball to his furry friend. Archer tried his best to catch it, leaping up into the air, but unfortunately, he failed. At least he tried!

Walking In A Winter Wonderland

The snow continued on the third day, which was good news for Archer. He had another opportunity to have fun in the snow. Of course, his owner was right there to record his actions.
