"Honey" I said as he arrived home, "listen to this vacation description;
"Tahoe snowshoeing and dogsledding: You don't have to go to Alaska to learn to love snowshoeing and dogsledding. You can do both amid the wintertime beauty of the Sierra Nevada backcountry ... Meet the sled dogs, learn how they're trained, and handle the equipment used before hopping on in back and driving the team yourself."
"I don't think I'd want to snowshoe" he replies.
"But you love dogs, wouldn't that be fun?" was my comeback.
"How much does it cost?"
"$700 per person for four nights"
"Couldn't we just go to the pound?"
