This one’s for Rocket, stuck inside because of -10 degree weather. Poor Rocket!
Although Tucker is now a Southern California dog, he is (as Dennis mentioned) actually Canadian. We met his breeder halfway, in Watertown, NY, on a blustery winter* day in 1998 to pick up this little ball of red fur:
“Come back later. I’m sleepy.”
We would dig him a path so he could go do his business without being up to his, um, goodies in snow. This is an aerial shot from our private helicopter. (Okay, it was actually from the loft shooting down toward the back yard.)
“Okay I’m done, back to the house now!!!”
Tucker never liked the cold much, but when we would have a thaw, he would go out in the woods in our back yard and go exploring, or just running like a lunatic:
“Will you PLEASE get the lead out?”

Sometimes he would scare himself and think he saw something in the woods that wasn’t there:
“What the hell is THAT thing?”
* In Watertown, winter starts in September and ends in June.
