Our elderly dog had died in the spring, so we searched around until we found a pup, and by then it was Labor Day. So the pup was being house trained throughout the autumn. I would drive home on lunch hour and walk him under our beautiful black walnut tree, where he’d play in the crunchy leaves. We had the best times!

But because we live in Oswego County (think snow!), I knew that when winter came, our special lunches would end. And it really did happen that way: We were crunching under the black walnut tree, fetching sticks, and I turned around and saw snow in the air. In that moment, I knew: winter’s going to come, puppy’s going to grow up—live in the moment!

Walking my puppy—
Hear him crunch through autumn leaves
The next minute—snow!
