Usually you don't hear much about my parakeet, Sunshine, because all she does is sit on her stick and tweet. Well, today I have a little story about Sunshine, and my giant, one hundred pound German Shepherd, Schultz.
Schultz apparently decided that he wanted to play with Sunshine. He stuck his big snoot up to her cage and rattled the bars. Sunshine squawked at him.
"Schultz," I said. "You'd better watch it. Don't make Sunshine mad!"
He didn't listen. This time he lifted her door with his snoot. Sunshine didn't like that one bit. She jumped on the side of her cage and squawked some more.
Schultz thought that meant she wanted to play, so he knocked his nose against her cage. That was it. Sunshine wasn't going to take any more of his harrassment. She pecked his nose.
Schultz backed away, a little confused.
"See, Schultz. She doesn't want to play with you. Leave her alone."
Schultz didn't get it. The block head nudged her cage again. This time, Sunshine bit him hard on the nose. He yiped.
I shook my head. "You got what you deserved, Schultz. Next time, respect the lady!"
