On our deck stands a yellow dog. He does not move. He does not blink. I have attempted to communicate with him, to no avail. He remains stoic. Yesterday I looked out and saw him standing there. I said to him from the dog door, "come inside, O quiet one." He did not move. I offered to send Foley outside to help dig him out. Still nothing. What was I to do? I went and took a nap.
