But I did see something that gave me an idea and might possibly make me rich and famous. They have exercise wheels for these mice to entertain them and, well, exercise them. I’m a little unsure of just why a small mouse needs to be entertained or exercised but then I’m not a mouse person.
Then I noticed our clothes drier. It has a drum that rotates and the dog could just be popped in there and run to his little heart’s content. There are even heat settings so we could set it for low heat and get him to jump in there after his bath thereby killing two birds with one stone, so to speak.
The one drawback is that it’s dark in there. At least I assume it is. Now that I think of it, I don’t know. I don’t think anyone really knows for sure. Anyway, if it is dark it shouldn’t be too difficult to rig up a small miner’s lamp for him to wear on his head.
I realize this sounds too good and too obvious to be workable but remember Newton saw an apple fall to the ground and thereby figured out why we don’t all fly off the earth. How simple a thing is that?
