[Editor’s Note: The winter of 2008 saw record amounts of snow; at times, 2 or 3 or 4 feet of the stuff blanketed the area. It was a nightmare.]

“Liking all this snow?”

—Not really, since it makes patrolling extremely difficult.

“Yeah, you were quite a sight bounding about, sinking up to your neck.”

—I gave it my best effort.

“We were impressed, and quite amused.”

—I’m so glad I was entertaining.

“You’re just an all-purpose dog, delightful in every way imaginable.”

—You’re welcome. Now if you’ll excuse me . . .

“Ah, time for a nap already?”

—A dog’s gotta do what a dog’s gotta do: wake me if a biscuit starts using my name.

“Will do.”
