Spud has taken over Taxes, Smith's stuffed bison from when he was about 2. The other day, Spud wanders in the house with a big brown thing in his mouth, drops it on the floor, and it's Taxes, covered in mulch. He had buried and then dug him up in a mulchy spot right next to a hosta plant. So today, I threw Taxes to Spud in the yard, and a little while later, David notices a bison head sticking out of the ground. Love that beagle.
