We had a Very Rude awakening early this morning. I was still on the bed, Daddy had just gotten up, 'n' Mommy was ready to go back to snoozing, when all at once we heard 'n' FELT this humongous BLAM!!! I must have jumped 3 feet in the air 'n' then charged down the stairs to hide behind Daddy. Mommy also jumped (literally) out of bed, too, 'n' the house really shook. She thought something must have exploded nearby. Something did blow up nearby...actually across the street. It was the transformer that blew, shutting off our electricity.
Now, as to what CAUSED the transformer to blow, it's a somewhat tragedy. Now some of you pups may say, "Hurrah!" when you hear what happened, as there are some of you known to not like this "cause." I'll tell you: it was a squirrel who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. I always thought squirrels knew how to climb those poles 'n' power lines, but this one was definitely not in the know. Daddy found him fricasseed (we don't know how to spell this word) at the bottom of the pole. I do hope the power company gave him an appropriate burial. All in all, I prefer to be awakened by Mommy's alarm clock.

Glad you did not have a fire, sometimes that happens when transformers blow. (((( hugs ))))
