Snow in June?

We did it! We got 600 lbs of crushed ice for Charleston.

To catch you up, our 5 year Lab, Charleston, has an inoperable tumor called a Fibrosarcoma in his mouth. He will likely not live through the summer so we have been doing everything we can think of (thanks to everyone that has contributed ideas so far) to spoil him rotten and make his last weeks as fun and comfortable as possible.

So, one of Charleston’s favorite things ever is snow. Since he won’t be around for winter, Vinny had over 600 lbs of crushed ice delivered by the good people at Tullo Ice (who threw in a bag for free) in an attempt to mimic snow for him. Of course the day we planned to do it turned out to be the hottest day of the year, but it was still super fun.

It worked better than we could have imagined. Check it out:
