I thought that crash was just Them Upstairs dropping something.
Turns out it was the mezuzah falling off my bedroom door. I’d taken it off for a Hebrew school on Sunday, and apparently not stuck it back on hard enough.
I found the mezuzah case some hours later, in the middle of the hall. That’s where the dog leaves things she’s stolen.
I can’t see the scroll anywhere.
Since mezuzot are made from parchment, and parchment is first cousin to rawhide, and the dog loves rawhide, I rather suspect that the dog has eaten it.
There are few things more annoying than discovering that the dog has eaten your mezuzah. Perhaps first among them is discovering that the dog has eaten your very small mezuzah that it took you hours and hours to write and the accompanying realisation that you will have to do it all over again.
The moral is: use nails instead of sticky pads when attaching mezuzot.
