  • Our girl in the pink hat bounds down the pathway, hoping across the frozen grass with happy joy with her Schnauzer. Her energy is infectious. She delights in finding an island of ice which she claims as her own to command. Her dog stands attentively at guard, challenging anyone who might want to conquer the island.

    Okay, he’s really just watching anyone who passes by with canine curiosity. And when you hear his high-pitched bark, any fear you might have instantly evaporates. But no matter, it’s still fun to rule an island; to enjoy the little things your imagination brings to life.
