That brings me to our quadrille word. Ice, ice, baby! Remember your quadrille must be exactly 44 words, not counting the title and must include ice or a form of the word.
Most treacherous slopes brandish dark ice When naivete opens a door There’s peril in just being nice Most treacherous slopes brandish dark ice Heed this scarred warrior’s advice Learn from my tragic ‘before’ Most treacherous slopes brandish dark ice When naivete opens a door

This form was tricky. It’s about our dear Norah who was relinquished to a shelter in Arkansas while expecting puppies in 2019. (She was severely underfed because even bursting with pups she weighed almost 20 pounds less than she does now! Our vet says she is a good weight currently.) She gave birth to 9 pups, and they were happily adopted. Norah waited for six months to find a home. When I saw her, I fell for her soulful eyes. After hearing her story, I wanted her. I’d lost my best pal Ollie 3 weeks before and we honored his memory by giving her a forever home. I named her Norah which means ‘honor’. She was shipped from Arkansas by trailer truck to Vermont where we picked her up. This will be her 4th Christmas with us. ❤
