One look at Typhoon hoarding his chunks of ice and J.R.R. Tolkien’s character Gollum comes to mind protecting “My Precious” from others.
With apologies to J.R.R. Tolkien (whom the Hu-Dad read many years ago as a wee lad), the character of Gollum and his precious ring popped to mind as we watched Typhoon hoard his favorite possession from snowstorms—ice. He roots through the yard, breaks off chunks, and piles them to chew. We think the side-eye warning to stay away from his precious ice sums it up perfectly.
