My mother-in-law made the big mistake of leaving her coffee mug on the coffee table in the family room. It was a steaming cup of fresh-brewed java. And apparently, it was too much for our German Shepherd to resist.
As soon as my mother-in-law left the room, that dog was on it.
"Schultz!" my daughter screamed. "No! Don't drink the coffee!"
But it was too late. The hairy beast slurped up that stuff with his big pink tongue. (It's a wonder he didn't burn that big pink tongue!)
Then my mother-in-law returned to finish her nice cup of coffee. "Where's my coffee?" she said. "I know I had a full cup here a minute ago!"
My daughter and I looked at each other. "Um. Somebody with a big pink tongue drank it." I said.
"Schultz!" she bellowed.
The dog ran. He knew he shouldn't mess with the mother-in-law!
