Schultz's Dinner

Schultz, our enormous German Shepherd, has been on a rampage lately.  I don't know what his malfunction is, but he is having some serious issues with staying out of trouble.  A couple of days ago, he went to the pet store, and knocked over a whole shelf of goldfish food with his big, bushy tail.  Yesterday, I caught him digging up one of the plants in my garden.  And did I mention how filthy he's been getting?  Maybe he thinks that he can do whatever he wants now that Santa's already been here with a delivery of treats for his stocking. 

Anyway, today's episode involved food - human food.  I was attempting to make spaghetti. As I pulled the noodles out of the box, a bunch fell onto the floor.  Guess who was there to clean up?  Yep.  Schultz.  Apparently he likes munching on uncooked spaghetti noodles.

"Schultz, yuck!" I said.

He cocked his head and kept crunching.  He ate about a third of a box of those things.

Later, my son put his vanilla milkshake on the kitchen chair.  I don't know why he did this, but I didn't catch it.  Schultz did.  When I walked into the room, there was Schultz, with his big snoot in the cup, licking up the milkshake.

"Schultz!" I hollared.  "What do you think you're doing?"

He pulled his snoot out of the cup and looked at me.  His black face was covered with splotches of vanilla ice cream.  He put his snoot back in and licked some more.

"Oh no you don't," I said.  "Crate!" 

I confiscated the milkshake and locked him up in jail.  That's where he's going to stay for a very long time!

  2. It's not Schultz's fault that the goldfish food got in the way of his tail. You should be grateful that he cleaned up the spaghetti YOU spilled. And Bubba left the milkshake on the chair, so Bubba should go in the crate. Honestly, Sherry, I don't know what's wrong with you.

    Dear Little Schultzie,

    You should run away and come to live at my house. You would have so much fun with the Z-Boys and no one would sentence you to jail.

    Love,
    Schultz's New Mommy

    1. Dear Janie,

      My daughter would like to have a word with you. She says you may absolutely, positively not have her puppy wuppy, Shultzy Wultzy. How could you want to take away her doggy?

      As for Schultz, I let the goldfish incident slide, because that was obviously an accident, but Schultz knows he's not allowed to drink milkshakes. We've had that conversation before. Therefore, Schultz must spend time in doggy jail.

      I know I am a very strict mommy - much stricter than you, but Schultzy Wultzy is going to have to deal with it.

      Love,

      Schultz's Real Mommy ;)

    1. I can't say I blame him. I'd be sick of eating kibbles every day if I was him, too!

  6. Sounds like Schultz is pretty hungry. He must be on a holiday eating binge like me.

    I'm finally recognizing the award you gave me a while back on my memoir blog.
