We asked for your snow day photos. You sent us some pretty cute ones

A 3-month-old puppy played in the snow in Wakefield on Monday.

On Monday morning, we asked Boston Globe readers to send us photos of how they spent their snow day, as school was canceled due to the foot — or more — of snow received in some areas of Massachusetts.

We were not disappointed. Here are some of the cutest (and most striking) photos that were submitted as of Monday afternoon.
