Ever since sweet Echo was just a puppy there were two things she knew best, how to be stubborn and how to absolutely adore snow. Jennifer Wang, Echo’s mom said, “Being a Samoyed, Echo has loved snow since the very first day I got her. She loves to burrow her entire head into fresh powdery snow, and to dig holes large enough to fit her whole entire body in!"
One day when Echo was out on a walk with her mom and her mom’s cousin, she came across a snowy cave. Even though Echo loves snow, she was a little apprehensive at first to take a peek inside the cave which was slightly covered up by snow. It seemed a bit ominous at first, but after she realised it was safe she couldn’t help but jump right into the cozy little snow cave.
"When my cousin looked in the cave, Echo was still not sure whether it was safe enough for her to go in, but after I stuck my head in, Echo decided that it was safe enough for her to go in as well and crawled right in. Pretty much from there she just decided that it was her new home and refused to come out! She did eventually come out, only to go right back in, as if to say, ‘Hey, come check out my new crib!’”
After some time Wang was able to coax Echo out of the cave. However when they came across the cave again on their walk a few days later, Echo decided to move into the cave. However this time the pup was way more determined to stand her ground. “The second time we went on that same hike the entrance to the cave was almost entirely covered up, but she knew exactly where the cave was. She dug through the blockage, and slipped right back into her cave. This time she was in there for quite a while, munching on snow, and just laying down and chilling (literally)!”
Sweet Echo determined that the cave was the perfect snowy hideaway, not to mention cozy. And it was clear that she hoped her mom would give the OK for her to love there forever. After all, her white fluffy fur blended right in.
And like all protective pet moms out there, Wang was unfortunately not on board with Echo’s plan to stay there. This time Wang had to come up with a more clever plan to get Echo to eventually part ways with her beloved cave.
“When we decided that we were going to leave to continue the hike, Echo was not happy with that. We called for her to come out several times but only when we pulled out her treat pouch, she was finally convinced to come out."
