When it comes out of the living room closet, we make a hasty retreat to the bedroom closet...and, even if the sliding doors are closed, we have used our superior mental abilities to figure out how to open them in such dire moments.
We also believe that the Hair Dryer and Coffee Maker are somehow related to The Dragon. However, they are not nearly as loud nor as scary as The Dragon and we've determined that they are harmless enough - despite the noise they make - to stay out from underneath furniture and in closets while they are out. The Dragon, on the other hand, is an entirely different beastie altogether and WE HATE IT!
When Deer finishes taking it for its weekly walk, we are both tremendously relieved. Washie even found it in his heart to forgive her entirely and curl up on her lap afterwards. After all, it is snowing again outside and we certainly have our priorities...cuddling being right there on top of the list!
