For those of you who don't know Schultz, he is our 100 pound German Shepherd. He's also a little crazy. This morning I took him outside to do his business. He sniffed around and then stopped at the hydrangea bush. His tail curled up and he went into full pounce mode.
"Schultz, what are you doing?" I asked.
His furry body was frozen into position. He didn't move a muscle. I knew he was stalking something, but I didn't know what. A mole? A chipmunk?
About ten seconds later, a huge bumblebee emerged from the bush. Schultz pounced. And the bee landed right on his nose. I don't think it stung him, but boy, was he startled!
He sneezed and the bee took off.
"You're lucky that wasn't a yellow jacket, Schultz, or your nose would be the size of a baseball right now!" I said.
He looked at me and sneezed.
Hopefully that'll be the last time he tries pouncing on a bumblebee!
