Stormdog: Pooch jumps for joy as rains lash Melbourne

WHEN life gives you lemons, make lemonade. So when life gives you monsoonal rain, well …

An overjoyed dog was filmed having the time of his life as heavy rain and strong winds swept across Melbourne last weekend.

Saturated but excited, Charles the dog was filmed jumping up and snatching at droplets falling from the roof of his owner's, Imogen Dunlevie, house.

"Charles has decided he's quite keen on the #melbournestorm," Ms Dunlevie captioned the video on Twitter.

However, Charles may have been the only one to celebrate the sodden conditions with the gigantic thunderstorms creating havoc across the city.
