    Last week I hid my favourite bone. Unfortunately I have forgotten where I put it. I know I should have chosen a place that I would remember, but I wasn’t expecting so much snow to have fallen. It is six hours since I last ate and the snow has grown deeper. I’ll spend a few more minutes looking, and if I don’t find it I’ll go inside.
