Hello NLGA Dog Blog Readers!

The month of April is full of tumultuous weather. How do your hounds handle thunderstorms? This week's poem is all about storms from the perspective of a Greyt!

By Katie Gilstrap

A sprinkle of rain -
A flash in the sky -
A thunderous roar -
And suddenly I
Can sense that a storm
Is just up ahead.
I need to take shelter!
(I'll hide in your bed).
