Unexplained Mysteries

After several days of rain, the sun was finally peeking from behind the clouds. Hu-dad took advantage of the drier weather by hanging up some of our dog beds outside (something about removing some sort of smell he noticed). imagine his surprise when he looked outside to discover one of those great unexplained mysteries.

what happened?

What happened to my bed? My poor bed exploded.

Someone has been shredding a bed.

Hu-dad! Come quick! Someone has been shredding my bed!


Yes, Hu-dad, what would you like to discuss?

mess someone made

Why, yes, this is quite a mess someone made.

Gotta go.

Things to do. Gotta go.

Looks like Kiska gets a brand new bed this weekend!

    Ice sez: Good thing Kiska wasn’t ON the bed when it “exploded”. Think what a mess THAT would’ve been to clean up!
