The Dog Paint Job

Yesterday, I had a lot of teenaged girls over. They wanted to paint. So I got them some canvases, acrylic paints, paintbrushes and a drop cloth. They kept themselves busy for a couple of hours, creating great masterpieces.

When they were done, they cleaned up, and placed their artwork on the table, to allow it to dry. Then they went off to do whatever they do.

Meanwhile, our giant German Shepherd, Schultz, had to inspect what was on the table. With his nose. Nobody witnessed this activity, but it was pretty obvious what he had done. And it wasn't just his nose. His pointy ears were white, too.

"Schultz!" my daughter said when she saw him. "What did you do?"

He cocked his head and looked at her.

Apparently he wanted to create a masterpiece, too!

(We managed to clean his nose, but Schultz is still sporting white-tipped ears!)

  1. It's the latest dog trend!
    Just think, if they'd left them on the floor, there would be white paw prints all over the house.

    1. No, I didn't take any photos. I guess I could take a picture of Schultz's ear. The paint is still on it.

    1. That would have been an excellent signature. But I'm glad he didn't, because it would have been a huge mess!

  12. He is very curious, lol. Reminds me of my cats when I leave something on a table. They must investigate, and they've created messes.

  14. Well done, Schultz. I loved having teens in the house to play games and watch movies.

    Love,

    1. The nice thing about teens, is that they're usually pretty good about entertaining themselves.

    1. Maybe. I've had a few posts with pictures of him. He used to be more entertaining when he was a puppy. Now he's a middle aged dog, and usually well-behaved.

    1. He is creative! When he was a puppy, he used to "decorate" with his food bowls. You never knew how he was going to stack them up, or where he was going to place them.

  20. Ha, that was a delightful read.

  21. Wasn't there an elephant whose art work sold for a small fortune? You never know Schultz could be the next big thing in art work done by animals.

    1. You've got a good idea there. I bet Schultz's art work would bring in a small fortune!

  22. Schultz wants in on the artistic action... refuses to be left out!
    You never know, he may just be an artistic canine.
