Fire! Run for it!!!!
Freddy and the girls love clean, WARM laundry. Well, they can forget about that for a while because the dryer blew. In its attempt to gasp its last breath, it caused a power drain which then caused a power surge back into the house. That caused a surge to the big TV....which started the electrical fire. [Mommy should have known something was amiss when Luna ran outside..... Luna doesn't expend energy for anything! Okay, except fire. Good to know.]
Luckily, Steven has a nose nearly as good as a....well, a dog...and he told Mommy that something smelled funny. Mommy casually strolled into the living room to smell electrical wire(s) burning. Also, thankfully, Daddy was home. Mommy ran around and unplugged everything while Daddy ran for the main power breaker/source into the house. He turned that off.
Mommy knew when everything was okay and it was safe to return to the house.... That's when the doggies came back inside - to take a nap - in the last of the clean, WARM laundry. Thanks, weenies.
