Every Denver snowstorm brings with it a joyful, glorious deluge of dogs-in-snow content. Big dogs. Fluffy dogs. Athletic dogs.
But what about Denver’s tiny dogs? What of the dachshunds, the mini-corgis and the chihuahuas, so often on the loose?
They may not be the stars of the snowstorms but they are the heroes. Join us for moment in honoring them.
Pearl, fashion chihuahua
Pearl came to Colorado from Texas one year ago with her mom, Hannah Tolle.
“We’re looking into getting her a full-body snowsuit,” Tolle texted. “I’ll keep you posted.”
Dobby, mlem king
Dobby — who is a tiny dog and not a house elf, as far as Denverite can tell — belongs to Kate Crowe of Art Hyve.
He did what he had to do!
FWIW I did dig out part of the yard for the teeny ones but everyone likes to 💩 where they prefer

Pippa, mini-corgi/residential plow
Pippa is very short but also very well insulated. This makes her well-suited to plow a trail through the snow.
Thank you for your service, Pip.
I thought residential snow plows weren’t going to start until 3am pic.twitter.com/u1e4FPb33P

Penny, regular-sized corgi
Young Penny belongs to Weather Nation meteorologist Chris Bianchi. She’s doing great for a small creature who has only been on this earth eight months.

Jax, bearded snow dog
Jax — who looks distinguished, if wet — lives with University of Denver professor Apryl Alexander.
“He is a complete goober in the snow,” she said.
Oliver, fashion hot dog
Or is it hot fashion dog?
Oliver is not happy about the snow and wouldn’t stop for a photo, he just wanted to go inside. pic.twitter.com/bkhy0wU02X

Rocky, reporter terrier
Rocky belongs to Denver7 news anchor and reporter Tom Mustin.
He’s grateful for a cleared path but would also be grateful to be let back inside.
Perrito, very small dog indeed
A bit late, but here he is. pic.twitter.com/OcQxEl49Ev

Perrito is very appropriately named, if not genetically equipped for half a foot of snow.
But Perrito is a trooper. Perrito wades into challenges. Perrito shakes off his troubles. Be like Perrito.
This is Coco.
Coco hates his coats & booties. He prefers all ‘naturel’ when it comes to snow, but then realizes how cold it and wants to come back inside. pic.twitter.com/Ccpv4GWvBW
