German Shredder Strikes Again

I think the dog is off his good behavior streak.  He's been getting in a lot of trouble lately.  This morning he was busy shredding a cloth lawn chair.  Yep.  My husband and father-in-law were hanging out in them only yesterday.  They neglected to put them in the garage.  Big mistake.  Beasty boy went out there and gnoshed on them for breakfast. 

"Schultz!" I yelled when I saw the blue fabric all over the lawn. 

He knew he was in trouble.

He spent a couple of hours in  his crate .  Then, after I thought he had repented, I let him out.  I went about my business.  Suddenly, I heard a crash.

"Schultz!"  I ran downstairs.  The telephone was on the ground.  No, he didn't eat the phone, but he did eat a little duct tape man my son had made for my husband.  It had been resting against the phone.  The duct tape man's body had been completely dismembered.  And he was missing a head.  I don't know where that went, and I probably don't want to know.

What I do know, is that the beast is grounded for a very long time!  Bad dog!

  2. I love the play on the breed's name: shredder.

    My cats shred things, but I love them anyway. :) I easily forgive my fur babies.

  8. Does punishing dogs really work? Hmmm . . . maybe I could banish my kids to a crate when they go nuts.

    1. Probably not. But at least it gets him out of the way for a while!

  9. My husband keeps talking about wanting a dog. That's not happening as long as we have the cat. Maybe I should share with him some of the Schultz stories? I still think he'll want a dog. : ) Have a great day!

    1. Ha! One of my friends shared my stories with her kids. "See," she said. "This is why we're not getting a dog!"
