"What's going on?" I ask.
"We heard something....scary!" says Big Dog. "A sucking sound!"
Little Dog pipes in to tell the tale, "We were looking for our dogs."
"And then we heard it. The sucking noise!" finishes Big Dog.
"And the dogs...they might get sucked!" continues Little Dog. "Oh no! It's a dog sucker!"
For the record, I'm not entirely sure what they heard and I'm too busy giggling to go check it out. They just recruited Mr. Dog because as Little Dog says so persuasively, "You have to hear it! The sucking noise, you have to come with me. In mama's room. That sucking noise that we hear!"
I'm pretty sure it's just the washing machine, but when they went back down with Mr. Dog, Big Dog made sure to take his giant inflatable bat.
