Okay, so I wanted to let you know, I'm having major problems with blogger. I'm managing to get this post out by sneaking on to draft blogger. (Of course this is right in the middle of the A-Z challenge. Ugh!) Hopefully my sneak job will work for further postings. If not, and I disappear off the face of the blogosphere, you'll know it was due to technical difficulties.
Now for the funny of the day: Schultz meets Sunshine. As you know (or may not know if you're a new follower), Schultz is my giant, loveable, completely obnoxious German Shepherd. The beast is no less than 102 pounds. Sunshine is my teensy weensy green parakeet. She's my good pet.
Today, Sunshine was attempting to eat her breakfast. She sat on her cup by her cage door, and cracked away on her seeds. Schultz had to be nosy. He went right up to her door and stuck his big nose against it. He sniffed.
Sunshine stopped cracking and looked. What the heck is this thing? she thought.
Then he licked the cage.
Sunshine got a little nervous when she saw that big pink tongue.
"Schultz," I said. "Leave Sunshine alone. She just wants to eat her breakfast."
Apparently Schultz wanted to eat her breakfast, too. He used his big snoot to open the cage door.
Poor Sunshine nearly had a heart attack. She flew to the other side of the cage in a big hurry!
"Schultz!" I said. "Go to your crate!"
He complied, and Sunshine was able to finish her breakfast (after a little coaxing).
I hope the bird isn't traumatized for life!.
