My pup pal Hayle wrote about static electricity a couple of days ago. I'd never really had any experience with this thing/substance? until this weekend, but I'm more than ready to back up Hayle's claim that it's a nuisance.
Mom and dad and I share a room at grandma and grandpa's house, and I woke mom up at about 7 a.m. for my morning business. There's nothing like playing with toys after a productive morning stroll, and I really enjoy playing with Frank's toys before he gets up in the morning. One of my favorite things to do is lay on my back and toss and grab at a toy while scratching my back on the carpet. Scratching necessitates a back and forth motion... and apparently back and forth rubbing on carpet in the middle of winter creates static.
When I stood up my tail was poofed out to twice it's normal size and just walking made my hair crackle. I went over see what mom was laughing about, touched her with my nose and whammo! Wowsers, that's all I can say.
