While ZippiVet is an Austin animal hospital, we love pets regardless of geography. Now that the snow has stopped falling on the East Coast, the pets have come out to play. Watch as these cats and dogs bound into the snow as soon as they can. No blizzard can stop these guys when they just want to have fun.

With the holidays fast approaching, there’s no denying the magic in the air and the fuzzy warm feeling you get when you reunite with your family. For a lot of us the holidays are an opportunity to see loved ones who are serving overseas – something that brings joy to every member of the family, including pets. So, put on a little cocoa and prepare to bask in the heartwarming glow of these delighted doggies welcoming their family members back from their military duties.
