Schultz and the Sprinklers

Schultz thinks sprinklers are evil. (For those of you who don't know, Schultz is our devious hundred pound German Shepherd.)  Every time the sprinkler system goes on, he has to launch an attack.

Yesterday was the biggest battle of all.  About seven sprinkler heads popped out of the ground and began shooting jets of water all over the grass and gardens.  Schultz didn't like that one bit.  He charged on those sprinklers and tried to bite the water that was coming out.  Of course he ended up with a wet face.  Apparently, he didn't like having a wet face, because he rolled on the ground, trying to get the water off.

The sprinklers wouldn't let up.  While he was rolling, they doused him with more water.  Which made him even madder.  He got up, ran as fast as he could to the nearest sprinkler head, and ripped it out of the ground.  Then he chomped on it.  Until it was dead.

I won't tell you what my husband said about the whole thing.  But I will say that Schultz will not be allowed anywhere near sprinklers from now on!

  4. Not so amusing for you having to replace your sprinkler head, but I enjoyed reading of this doggy battle. :)

    1. At least the sprinkler heads weren't expensive.

  5. I think you should let Schultz do whatever makes him happy, including more attacks on the sprinkler system. What good is having sprinklers if Schultz can't play with them?

  7. I can guess what Hubby said.

    PS: My baker's eye read Schultz and Sprinkles and I thought it was going to be about baking.

    2. Why is that? Is baking bad? Or sprinkles? We call them jimmies, here, actually, but the same thing.

      Have a groovy week. Nice to see pictures in your latest post.

  8. My mom's dogs are scared of water like cats are. I would have loved to see The Great Sprinkler War Of 2014.

  9. Oh no! I bet I can guess what your husband had to say about the whole thing. Poor Schultz! He won the battle, but he didn't win the war. : (

  10. This sounds like it was hilarious to watch. Sorry one of the sprinkler heads died- but I am sure Schultz wasn't giving up after the havoc they caused! Too bad it wasn't caught on video. :)

  12. That would actually be pretty funny to watch! We had our sprinklers on earlier this week and were curious what our dog would do. She just stood on the patio, staring out at it. She hates water. Finally, she ran and hid behind me. It tugged at my heartstrings, so I let her into the house where it was safe!

    1. German Shepherds are fearless. If they're mad at something, there's no hope for their target.

  15. This would have made an awesome YouTube video.

  16. I guess Schultz has a mind of his own, would have loved to hear what your husband said.

  17. And I bet he was so confused when you didn't even congratulate him for killing the nasty water monster.
