Train-eating Dog

My eight-year-old son wanted to play with his electric train set.  "Mama, will you help me set it up?"

"Sure, Bubba."

We got the thing put together and ran the train.  It went around and around and around.  We were mesmerized by it.  But then something happened.  A certain 100 pound beast named Schultz, tore into the room. (He's our German Shepherd, in case you didn't know.)  He skidded to a stop in front of the tracks.

"Don't even think about it, Schultz!" I said.

He lay down and watched the train go in circles. I thought he might actually behave.

I thought wrong. Two seconds later, he pounced - right on the train.

"Schultz!"  I yelled.

And then do you know what he did?  He grabbed that train in his big old mouth and took off.

"Drop it!"  I hollared.

He did, but not before covering it with a nice coat of doggy slime!

  2. haha....that's awesome. Maybe he thought he was protecting you from it or maybe it was just too much of a temptation.

    I used to have a lab who couldn't resist the little hot wheels race cars. He'd pounce every time.

    1. I think he found an electric train with a shining headlight to be too irresistable!

  3. The lovely beasts are so darned unpredictable. Once my sweet dog bit a chunk out of the molding on the fireplace surround. One minute he was looking at me innocently. The next, well...you get the picture.

  8. How funny. My cat would do the same thing. Neil got a little car set for his birthday last night and Denny was all over it. It's by the makers of Hex-Bugs and Denny loves those too. He's just one of the kids around here.
