Time for another Schultz story. Our rather large German Shepherd is a little bit crazy. I'm sure you already knew that, though. Sometimes he has what we lovingly call, "berserks." These are incidents when he completely loses control, and runs around the house in circles as fast as he can go. Usually these little attacks are harmless. The worst thing that happens, is that the area rugs slide out of place, and claw marks track up our carpet.
The one he had today, though, was another story. I was upstairs working on my manuscript, when I heard the familiar sound of the dog galloping through the house. My husband was cheering him on, "Ole!"
Around and around he went. Then all of a sudden...CRASH!
I heard the sound of glass breaking, and it sounded like something very large had fallen over.
I went downstairs to investigate.
On the floor, was a broken vase. The flowers that were inside lay scattered on the ground. The table the flowers were on, was knocked over. And Schultz and my husband? They were standing in the corner looking as guilty as could be.
"All right, boys," I said. "What just happened here?"
"Um, Schultz had a little trouble making the turn," said my husband.
I went into the kitchen and found a dustpan and broom. I handed them to my husband. "You get to clean up!"
Then I went back upstairs and continued my work.
