Spring, summer, fall, winter — everyone has a favorite season. Maybe it’s spring because that’s when your birthday falls. Or perhaps it’s summer because that means no school. Fall might be your favorite because you love it when the leaves change. Or it could just be winter because you really, really love the snow.

This dog falls into the “I love winter because of the snow” category. In a series of photos posted on Imgur by justakiwi, a black dog is seen desperately trying to hold on to the last shred of winter aka a slowly shrinking mound of snow.

At first, he lies on top of the snow, seemingly guarding it from the upcoming spring.

Even though his mission is good so far, the dog decides to check his surroundings.

Sadly, the sun comes out and partially warms the snow.

Spring continues to approach, and proves a viable opponent for the snow. The dog still tries his hardest to save winter.

Spring, however, prevails.
