Have you ever seen a dog on drugs? It isn't pretty.
Our hundred pound German Shepherd, Schultz, had a little visit to the veterinarian, yesterday. He needed some vaccinations, and a good teeth cleaning. (It's best to put hundred pound German Shepherds to sleep before attempting to clean their teeth. I'm sure you don't need an explanation why.)
The vet knock him out good. He was down for hours. When my husband picked him up, the dog was incredibly loopy. He could barely stand, let alone walk. Somehow, he managed to get into the house, where he promptly parked himself in his favorite spot, stuck his tongue out (with his mouth mostly closed), and stared at me with a glazed expression.
When the kids came home from school, they were very concerned.
"What's wrong with Schultzy?" they asked. "Why is he just sitting there with his tongue sticking out like that?"
"Because he's on drugs," I said. "Don't do drugs, or you'll act and look as stupid as him!"
(For those who are concerned, Schultz is just fine, now. By the evening, he was back to his normal, goofy self. And for those who like pictures, I decided not to take any, to preserve some of his dignity. It would've been humorous to see a stoned German Shepherd, but you'll just have to imagine what he looked like.)
