Recent snow flurries in Seattle triggered memories of my childhood in Fairbanks, Alaska.

A group of kids were each gifted with a puppy from a litter of Alaskan Huskies , which were all named "King" by their new owners--- except that mine was the only female, so I had to name her, "Queenie," to the constant delight of my friends. This teasing went on until, as we shall see, Queenie became famous in Alaskan lore.

Queenie and I were romping through the backyard snow drifts which towered over us, when Queenie spotted a snow-shoe rabbit in the neighbor's yard. It was sitting so still I couldn't actually see it, and it wasn't until we crept closer, that I saw it had been caught in a leg-trap. While releasing it, I was nipped a couple of times, but it was finally able to hobble away,

After this incident, I always introduced Queenie as the "dog of the hare that bit me."

As you can see, my photo is actually a drawing---how do you know I exist?
I've seen the photo that drawing was made from.

Then, again, how do I know that photo was you? :p
