From my point of view, the only good thing about snow at this time of year is the moisture that it gives our forest. I know first hand that most of our secluded water holes used by our wildlife for drinking and bathing do not have water in them yet. So perhaps this storm will bring the water level up high enough to fill them.
Even though May snow is yucky, wet, and heavy, I still love getting the pups out to play in it.
And, R loves sprinting through snow like a pup. His sister is in the background, trying to catch up!
A May snowstorm is a good excuse for some snuggling, and our Black Dog is everyone's favorite snuggle bunny.
Even Hachi can snooze (briefly) when next to him.
I'm afraid that I ruined their snoozing bliss with the sound of my camera. The puppy eyes opened...
... and soon Hachi wanted to play. R is the most patient big brother that I can imagine.
In general, we have a very happy Black Dog on our hands!
