What a surprise!! Claire went to feed Bingley (our little dog), grabbed the food scoop from inside the the dog food bag, and jumped back with a little cry. "There's a mouse in Bingley's food! I don't know whether it's dead or not!" As you can imagine, she was a bit creeped out--she was so startled that I don't think she cared to find out the mouse's living status, but just dropped the scoop right back in the bag. It was clear that it was my job to take care of the issue!
I must admit that I was relieved to see the little guy moving around down there at the bottom of the bag. I took out the scoop, trying very hard not to scare the little critter, but then I was the one to be surprised because there were TWO of them scurrying around in Bingley's bag of food! I have to admit that they were awfully cute! It must have been quite a feast for the two of them surrounded by all of that yummy dog food. In the end, though, I think they were quite relieved to escape. They both took off like a shot when I gently tipped the bag for them to get out in the fresh air OUTSIDE of our house.
