The Mexican Shepherd

It's time for another post about our German Shepherd, Schultz.  The dog is a little bit nuts. Now he has an identity problem. Let me tell you about it.

Last night, I made tacos for my family.  (Yes, once again, I've deviated from the chicken trend.) Schultz parked himself right next to my son, who is notorious for dropping food scraps on the floor.  As expected, the boy lost some of his taco on the first bite.  Schultz was right there to lick it up.  Afterwards, the dog stuck his huge head on the table, sniffing for more - something he's definitely not supposed to do!

"Schultz,"  my son said, pushing him out of the way.  "You're a German Shepherd, not a Mexican Shepherd! You're supposed to eat sausage and sauerkraut.  Not tacos!"

  1. Schultz doesn't know the difference! He's a canine vacuum cleaner.

  4. LOL! Love this! Although I'm sure tacos is better than a lot of German food, and I can say this because I'm Germanic descent. ;)

    1. I'm not a big fan of German food, either. I spent a considerable amount of time in Germany, and the food made me sick. I actually had to go to the store and purchase Erdnusse (peanut butter), jelly, and bread. That's pretty much all I ate while I was there. ;)

  5. Schultz is worldly and enjoys all cuisines.

    1. Yes, he does. I wonder how he'd like sushi?

  6. Look on the bright side: a Mexican Shepherd will probably do the jobs that American Shepherds aren't willing to do.

  8. I don't understand your fixation with not allowing Schultz to put his head on the table. If my dogs could sit comfortably in the dining room chairs, I would set places for them so they could dine with me.

    Love,

    1. Ha! His daddy is supposed to be from Canada. But maybe they got mixed up, and he was really from Mexico. ;)

  13. I love Bubba's straightforward logic.
    Scultz is a dog with varied tastes - like an international gastronomist! LOL

  14. LOL, Schultz just wants more variety in his diet. Dog food everyday has got to get boring.
