There's something in the front closet

Something evil lurks in the living room closet. Deer feels somehow compelled once or twice a week to bring it out of its cave and take it for a walk around Camp Shorewood. It is loud. It is scary. We think it is some sort of dragon:

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!

Wow, you two look pretty scared in those closet photos... but I really don't think that Deer would ever let anything hurt you, not even a dragon.
