My worst fear, if I have to think about it, is having one of my dogs fall through ice in deep water. I'm sure I would put myself in danger to try and get them out and we'd probably both end up in very serious trouble. However, when I know that the water is only about a foot deep, I breathe a little more easily. One morning late last year (that would be 2010) in the early morning and still cold enough for ice to have formed over puddles, Raimi had what I think was his very first Bambi moment. I couldn't imagine why he was spending so much time over by this frozen pond but as it turns out, he was having a lovely time investigating the ice all by himself.
