There is a dog and his name is Poochie. He is inside a door looking outside. It is raining and snowing. It is wintertime in 1928. Poochie feels shut in because he can't go outside. Poochie lives with his family. Henry is the father and Jenny is the mother. They have two sons, Billy and Samuel who help take care of Poochie and play with him a lot. There is also a cat that lives in the house. Poochie is thinking, "I wish it would stop snowing so that I could go outside and play in the snow." "How long is it going to take before the snow stops falling." It is not snowing very hard now so maybe it will stop soon. It finally stops snowing and Poochie runs outside to play in the snow with Billy and Samuel.
