Humans get so many things wrong. For example, they think the saying is “April showers bring May flowers,” when it is really “April snows bring Husky glows.”
Most people’s weather perception of North Carolina comes from the lower elevations to the east of us, but those of us who live in the mountains know that April snows are normal. In fact, Mount Mitchell – the highest elevation mountain in eastern North America and just a few miles from us – has received measurable snow every single month of the year.
We are supposed to receive snow showers into Saturday, but no telling if that will be the last snow of the season or not for us. We gout outside and enjoyed it no matter what.
We do have to tell a story on the Hu-Dad. He was running around with the camera trying to take pictures of us. At one point, he was running backwards trying to get a shot when he fell over Qannik.
Hu-Dad fell on his back and we took that as a new game of “Pile On the Hu-Dad.” Trust us, that is a really fun game. Hu-Dad did successfully keep the camera from getting crushed by a Siberian mob.
With that game over, Hu-Dad limped back to the house to process the photos and we returned to our favorite snow games.

Requiem for a Rabbit
May 21, 2023
A poor bunny made a bad decision, so I wanted to pay my respects with a requiem for a rabbit. My dogs plotted their own event.
Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,700 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
Missed A Rabbit By A Hare
In a fumble of Sibe Quentin security, Typhoon almost caught another rabbit, though Hu-Dad has kidded him that he missed it by a hare.
There is a reason I keep a small flashlight on my night table. I tripped over my dog one night and only startled her. I, on the other hand, twisted and threw my body in a direction that would not get her squashed under me, resulting in weeks of pain (back, knee, ankle, wrist).
OH your precious face Qannick!!!
Ah, the risks of a documentarian. Sounds like they were coming to your rescue.
lol. That look by Cheoah is priceless! As for a game, Pile on by the Herd sounds great!
I fell over my dog, Silky, in the street when she cut in front of me. Wound up going to hospital for tests. You were lucky. Still love my girl.
