After our German Shepherd, Schultz was released from doggy jail yesterday, he came and sat at my feet while I practiced the piano. I have a recital coming up at the end of January, so I've been doing a lot of practicing. Usually, Schultz behaves himself. Or sometimes he chases the shadows I make as I play. Yesterday was a little different. He stuck his big snoot under my arm pit and lifted my arm off of the keyboard.
"What? Are you tired of listening to Beethoven twenty times a day?"
He cocked his head and looked at me.
I resumed practicing.
He stuck his snoot under my arm pit again.
"What do you want, dog?"
He walked to the other side of the piano and rested his head on the keys, making a chord cluster.
"Oh, I see. You want to play." I stopped and watched him. He watched me. "Well?" I said. "Do something."
He promptly licked the keys and trotted off.
Just what I needed. Dog slobber on my piano!
