Morning Visitor

Our hundred pound German Shepherd, Schultz, is a very smart dog. He has figured out how to open doors with his nose.

This morning, he decided he wanted to pay my daughter and her friend, who was having a sleepover, a little visit. He opened her door, walked in, and jumped on my daughter's  bed. He thought he was going to have a little nap.

"Schultz!" the girls yelled. "Get out of here!"

He slinked off and headed for the door. Before he left, he turned and gave my daughter one of his soulful puppy-eye looks.

Apparently, she couldn't resist.  "Aw, Schultzy," she said. "You can come back."

He wagged his tail and jumped back up on her bed for a snuggle.

What a little manipulator!

(For your information, Schultz is not allowed to jump on the furniture or anyone else's bed!)

Before I go, I'd like to let you know that I am a guest on author, Virginia Wright's blog.  I'm giving a little background information on my book, Ten Zany Birds. Please stop by and visit! Thank you to those of you who visited yesterday's book tour stop. I appreciate it!

  3. Dogs know how to manipulate with their sad faces, that's for sure. :)

  4. Our pets certainly do know how to wrap us around their little (nonexistent) fingers, don't they?

  5. Now that he can open doors, he's going to go everywhere.

  6. I wish it would work that well when I give Mrs. Shady one of my soulful puppy-eye looks! :)

    Sherry, I submitted a comment on Virginia's blog. It did not show up right away and therefore I assume she uses blog moderation. I hope it gets published!

    1. Thank you for stopping by! Virginia is very good about replying quickly. I'm sure your comment is posted.

      Puppy eyes don't seem to work as well on spouses. ;-)

  7. I only tried to resist puppy cuddles once, when I had gotten my own puppy for the first time. We were trying to train her to be a guard dog to sleep by the door but she started crying from her box as soon as I turned off the lights. After fifteen minutes, I couldn't take it anymore and she ended up sharing my pillow and tucked in the blanket with me.

  8. My what a clever dog who knows what he wants to do, despite the fact that daughter and friend did not appreciate his visit,

  9. Funny how emotional our fur babies can be. Almost as funny as how we can't resist them. :)

  10. Ah, I do miss visits like these. Schultz sounds like an amazing character.
