It's a trap!
If you walk anywhere in our house and don't turn on the lights you run a high risk of getting caught in one of the dogs toy traps...
Ever kick a bone across the floor in the middle of the night that wasn't there when you went to sleep? I have and I lost a toenail in the process.
Ever step on a squeaky toy that was left like an offering at the side of the bed?
It's the loudest noise in the world at midnight, not to mention heart stopping.
Ever step on a cold damp stuffed hippo in the dark not knowing what the fuzzy wet substance under your foot was but praying the dogs didn't bring something in from the backyard?
This happens on a weekly basis for me...
Last night however was the best laid trap I've seen in a while, put there by Gabby. Her two favorite toys in the house perched right at the top of the stairs smack in the middle of the hall...
Thankfully I had my wits about me and I turned the light on... For sure I would have ended up in the supine position at the bottom of the stairs with my dogs sitting on top waiting to be fed.
