Today I'm a dog, descendent of the mighty wolf that lives in wintery forests, relative of the huskys, famous sled-dogs of the snowy northen lands. My owner thought I couldn't handle a bit of snow and decided to carry me to my toilet-spot. He slipped, fell on me and broke my leg. FML

Some dog breeds are tiny, and although many dog breeds have thick coats of fur, some dogs- like my Maltese- have fur that is better described as hair. It's one thin layer compared to the thick protective fur on a lot of other breeds, so dogs with thinner hair like mine can't go into too much snow without protection.

My dog is a yorkipoo and is very tiny. I also live in Canada where we can easily get 3 feet of snow, my dog is only like a foot high to begin with so he literally wouldn't even be able to walk out if I didn't have a path shovelled. My brother's back deck is also really high (about 8 steps) and last time we were there it was too steep and covered in ice and my dog didn't feel comfortable enough going down, so it could be something like that too. Also, their paw pads can freeze easily in -40C, which we have, so my dog can't be out there for longer than about two minutes. There are lots of reasons when your dog is really tiny (especially if op gets a lot of ice and snow where op lives). Op, you must've felt horrible, I feel so sorry for you! You were just trying to help and take care of your baby, remember that. Hope he gets better soon!

I was wondering the same thing! I have 3 dogs, ranging in size from 5lb chihuahua to 45lb husky! They all go outside on there own in the snow! Most of the time the snow is higher than my even my middle dog, but the two smaller dogs jump like jack rabbits through the snow when it's soft & fluffy! Or they run on top of the hard crust that we eventually get on our snow! I don't understand why anyone would need to carry there dog outside because of snow!!!

There's a big snow storm going on in the US, isn't there? I'm no good with where all the states are situated and which ones were affected, but isn't Arkansas also having problems with the snow? Besides, it could be a small dog, they can't handle large amounts of snow very well...

A few years ago my dog went outside and slipped on iced over snow and tore his ACL. He is a 10 pound Brussels Griffon. Now we carry him out to a spot or walk him out in our yard on his leash so he can't get injured again.

My dogs can't stand being out in this snowy weather for more than about 3 minutes. My Italian Greyhound mix will get cold and just sit down in the snow and I will have to go pick him up and carry him inside. :l
