We have a 'Three Dog Night' here on the Misouri river bottm. The supposed origin of "three dog night" was that the eskimos, when it became bitterly cold, would have to curl up with three of their sled dogs to keep warm. This instead of the normal one or two.
We only have two dogs here on the farm.
I've just sent Marilyn up to the kennel to get one more. I'm hoping it's not a pit-bull.
