DOGS AND DRYERS
Well, it’s been quite a day. Thank heavens Krissy moved when she did. Let me explain. Krissy and her sister Katie hang out in the laundry room most of the time. This adorable pair of Shih Tzus, are two dogs that can get into more trouble than King Henry V111 had wives. So bright and early this morning, I remove the first load of dry dog blankets from the dryer (I do at least four loads a day especially when I have puppies), took them to the kitchen table to fold, leaving the dryer door open. You know where this is going don’t you? Yup, when I return, I open the washer lid and begin firing wet blankets into the dryer. Now for the sheet to control static. With one hand I am tossing it in, even as my other hand is starting to swing the door shut.
Out of the corner of my eye, I see the wet blankets sort of wiggle. It is morning and I have been known to have eye trouble early in the morning, as in don’t know where I left my glasses last night. But I saw those blankets move. I don’t know whether to scream or faint. Blankets are not supposed to move. Slowly I bend over a bit and peer into the gaping jaw of that dryer. Two buggy eyes stare back at me from the back of the dryer. Krissy! Let’s not even think to much about what would have happened if I had closed that door and turned the dryer on. Because I was set to head straight outside for morning horse chores. So everyone, always check the dryer if you own a small dog, cat, ferret, anything which could jump into an open dryer.
