Wasn't it just a couple of weeks ago that our German Shepherd, Schultz, was trying to play the piano? Well, now he thinks he can play chess.
I found my marble chess set and decided to set it up. Of course Schultz had to check out everything I was doing. He stuck his big black snoot on the board and sniffed.
"Would you like to play chess, Schultz?" I asked.
He looked at me and cocked his head. Then he nudged one of the pieces.
I looked at him and cocked my head. "All right. Let's see what you can do." I took a turn and moved one of the pawns. "Your turn."
Do you know what he did next? He grabbed the king in his big jowels and tried to eat it.
"Schultz, drop it!"
He dropped it.
"Schultz, you're supposed to say, 'check' before you 'check mate!'"
