Snow question? Why does it do it...?

Everytime we have snow, my Shih Tzu fur has a small circular block of ice on his feet, his legs, under his chest, on his chest, his face. And it takes forever to melt...Why does snow do that to my dog?

    Its cause he has long hair, when he goes out there his body heat melts snow that touched the areas low to the ground, when he is out there for a long period of time the water than causes snow to stick and freeze to the fur, my pomeranian has the same issue, you can get dogie booties and a cute sweater, helps out a lot!

    It just clumps up in the dog's fur. No big deal, just let your dog lick it away once it's inside again.

    that type of breed is long haired.. you need to shave it or trim the hair of it every winter so that it doesn't get snow stuck to the dog.
